The Houston Museum of Natural Science puts up several Christmas trees around this time every year, each of which is uniquely decorated by a community organization. So, today being Christmas and all, I thought it would be fun to post some quick snaps of all of the fun decorations that graced our trees this year.
The first tree (and obviously the most awesome tree, ever) is from the HMNS Volunteer Guild. The theme for this year was Viva la Vida, so the Guild put together a tree that showcases all forms of life, starting from the earliest living cellular forms at the bottom and working up to current species at the top…
… complete with an imminent mass extinction event en route to the dinosaur branches.
The rest of the trees are pretty cool, too, but nothing can compete with the Guild’s dinosaur ornaments.
Well, that’s it really. Merry Christmas!
