Christmas Mountain is an interactive holiday story that rolls out daily in an “advent calendar” window display featuring animatronics, embedded videos, and original music in a handcrafted diorama.

The opening night celebration features the debut of the first episode of the story and a brief panel on the history of Christmas celebrations in NYC, along with festive treats and revelry. Doors open 6pm; Festivities begin 6:30pm.

WNYC host Brian Lehrer narrates the story, which takes place in a snowy hamlet populated by mice at the base of Christmas Mountain. The mountain is topped by an antenna that funnels signals from the “Christmas-sphere” into the town and onto the mice’s TVs. This year, the signal is on the fritz, and one grumpy mouse–the story’s hero–must descend to the center of the mountain to fix it so that the town can fulfill their beloved pastime of watching TV on the Winter Solstice. The clock is ticking! Along the way, our plucky hero encounters adventure at every turn, including a visit to a magical costume shop, a ride with a benevolent bus full of nuns, and broadcasts from an alternate Crust-mas dimension
