If you’re lucky enough to be in Manhattan at Christmastime and you’re checking off a list of holiday sights to see, be sure to add the Origami Christmas Tree at the American Museum of Natural History, which is perhaps the most unique holiday tree in the city. The theme of this year’s 13-foot tree is Gems of the Museumfeaturing 50 specially created gold-colored models in recognition of the ‘Golden Anniversary’ (50th Origami Tree) of this Museum tradition, which started in the 1970s. Among the more than 1,000 origami pieces decorating the tree are models of dazzling specimens from the new Allison and Roberto Mignone Halls of Gems and Minerals, “jaw-some” pieces inspired by the new special exhibition Sharksand those depicting iconic Museum exhibits like the Blue Whale, Titanosaur, and Tyrannosaurus Rex. Produced in partnership with OrigamiUSA, the Origami Tree is delightfully decorated with hand-folded paper models created by local, national, and international origami artists. See it now through January 9th, 2022!

Welcome to your second Holiday Season of rocking a mask to prevent the spread of the Covid-19 virus. Masking-up is such a part of everyday life now, it doesn’t even seem weird anymore. If you are like me and are mostly wearing the KN95 or blue medical mask, it’s fun to dress those up by layering them with one of the many colorful Pomchies masks I have in my Mask Wardrobe (which is now a thing). Let’s look at some of the seasonal ways you can coordinate  your “leaving  the house” look by matching your mask to your hair accessories with new looks for the holidays from Pomchies.
