Christmas Around the World at the Errea House Museum featuring Germany

Christmas Around the World this year at the Errea House will be featuring German decorations and holiday traditions. Two decorated Christmas trees will be on a silent auction, as well as other items. The trees will be decorated with typical German ornaments of lace, wood, and glass, with the traditional dill pickle ornament adorning the trees.

Across the street the Museum Gift Shop will be brimming with German ornaments and other gift items, wooden historic folk toys, pottery mugs and bowls, books on local history, jewelry, and vintage hammered aluminum serving pieces chosen for the holidays. A holiday booklet of German recipes and customs will be available for sale, along with local products like delicious jams from Moessner’s Farms and coffee from Blue Oak Coffee Roasters for a taste of Tehachapi.

The Museum also has new exhibits to carry on the German theme. A new exhibit opening for December First Friday is Zanya Biviano’s collection of German and Bohemian glass and crystal. The exquisite collection comes from her family’s ancestral home in Germany. It includes crystal with red, blue, and amber flashing with many pieces hand cut and etched in typical German patterns. There are also pieces with delicate enameling and applied gold designs.

A carved wood figure in the Baroque style is also featured. The 42 inch statue is a beautifully carved female figure with outstretched arms, painted in pastel colors. Family legend is that the figure represents Kunigunda, a German queen. It is many centuries old and we are fortunate to have it on loan during the holidays from Zanya.

Also found in the Textile Gallery is a portion of Harold Cox’s Coca Cola toy cars and trucks collection. These vehicles are now made in Germany, France, England, China, Italy, Japan, and Mexico, as well as the United States.

As usual, treats, wine, and champagne will be served, featuring foods from Germany.

The event kicks off on December First Friday, Dec. 1 from 5 to 8 p.m. and continues on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays until Dec. 23 from 12 to 4 p.m. The Errea House Museum is located at 311 South Green Street and the Tehachapi Museum is across the street.
