The Fred G. Dale Planetarium at Wayne State College will begin the 2013 holiday show “Season of Light” on Dec. 8, 13, 15, 20, 21 and 22. Friday and Saturday shows will be at 6:30 and 7:30 p.m. Sunday shows will be at 1:30 and 2:30 p.m. All shows include the winter constellation song.

“Season of Light” traces the history and development of many of the world’s most endearing holiday customs, all of which involve lighting up the winter season. “Season of Light” is visually rich, culturally inclusive, musically satisfying, and soothing as a warm drink on a cold winter’s night.
