"Seasons of Sharing"

Even if your kids have been to "Seasons of Sharing" celebrations before, there's good reason to visit again. "I would say people should come back several times, because performers will change every week," says Henry Yau of the Children's Museum of Houston. The exhibit is made up of a row of child-size houses, each highlighting a different winter celebration, including Las Posadas, the Lunar New Year, Christmas and Diwali. "We're offering a piece of different cultures. It's all about enjoying live music and performers and fun. The first week we're highlighting the Muslim culture and Ramadan, so we're having Raindrop Turkish House perform." Other performers during the two months of festivities include Express Theater, the Intuitive African Dance and Drum Culture, Las AmŽricas Ballet Folkl—rico, and Anjali Indian Dance Company. While all of the celebrations attract happy crowds, Yau says the two most popular are Kwanzaa and Hanukkah. 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesdays to Saturdays, noon to 6 p.m. Sundays. 1500 Binz. For information, call 713-522-1138 or visit www.cmhouston.org. $6 to $7.
