The West Virginia Division of Culture and History will kick off the 2005 holiday
season on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 25, at 6 p.m. when it turns on the lights for
two 25-foot wreaths which will hang from the north and west sides of the Cultural
Center. Each wreath has more than 4,500 multi-colored lights and is encircled
with 150 feet of rope lights which provide the frame. The wreaths sport three
10-foot holly leaves and three red holly berries. They will remain on display
through the holiday season. For more information, contact Stephanie Lilly, exhibits
coordinator for the Division, at (304) 558-0240, ext. 128.
