Thoughtful Thursdays: ‘Tis the season

Enjoy, Respect, Protect
Our Choice
This Friday is our annual World Holiday Traditions celebration, and this year our young visitors will create holiday greeting cards from recycled materials for our service men and women. National Aquarium staff and volunteers have been collecting used holiday cards for this very special arts-and-crafts activity. The recycled cards will be delivered to U.S. military, veterans, and their families, many of whom will be far away from home this holiday season, through the Red Cross Holiday Mail for Heroes program.

Join us for our World Holiday Traditions celebration this Friday evening to make a holiday greeting card from recycled materials for our service men and women. For those of you who can’t join us this Friday, here are some other great ideas for up-cycling your used greeting cards that we found online:

A sea of santas

This Saturday the National Aquarium’s security team received a special alert from the North Pole: Santa Claus was dispatching a group of Extra Santas to bring holiday cheer to Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, and he wondered if they could come to the Aquarium!  Of course – the National Aquarium would do anything for Santa Claus! The pack of traveling Santas descended on Pier 3 and spread some holiday joy to surprised guests as they arrived to visit the Aquarium. It was a fun sight for Aquarium staff and visiting families, and it brought the holiday spirit to life in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor!
