The Elvish Pedigree
Presented by Stefanie Ritter
With the approach of December and all its festivities, elves are on many people’s minds. But where do elves originate? Elves and their relatives have a long history in mythology and folklore, whereas the Christmas elf is a contemporary addition popularized during the 19th century. Grab a nice cup of tea, get cozy and enjoy this educational and entertaining lecture.
Stefanie Ritter has an M.S. in biology and has been the museum biologist for more than 20 years. For special occasions she will abandon the world of science for an entertaining look at old traditions and fairy tales.
