Oak Park River Forest Museum is hosting the Christmas season finale Twelfth Night from 2 to 4 p.m. on Jan. 6.

The event, an ancient solstice tradition and the traditional feast of the Epiphany, will be celebrated with games, caroling and cake. The cost is $6 for members and $12 for non-members.

Jan Dressel, former president of the Historical Society of Oak Park-River Forest, will present the program: "Everything you'd want to know about 12th Night if you were on Jeopardy!"

Museum Executive Director Frank Lipo noted in a press release that Jan. 6 also is the start of the last week of the museum's exhibit "Ghosts of Christmas Past."

The Oak Park River Forest Museum is open Wednesdays through Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. More information is available at
