On the day after Thanksgiving, the Art Institute's famous lions put on their holiday outfits as crews place wreaths around their necks. At the wreathing ceremony cast members from the Joffrey Ballet's Nutcracker will lead a celebration on the museum's steps, complete with hot chocolate. After the ceremony, head into the museum to participate in family activities in the Ryan Learning Center.
