This afternoon, we had a chance to stop by our local (and amazing) Upcountry History Museum. They have been advertising White Christmas: The Exhibition, a collection of original costumes, props, and memorabilia from the 1954 Christmas movie. White Christmas is such a classic Christmas movie and is the highest grossing musical film of all-time. Seemed like a perfect Christmas activity to enjoy this week!




Want to see a few of the pictures from our visit? We're hoping that we can convince you to check out the exhibit too! Our city, Greenville, SC, is the second city in the US to host this exhibit. We're lucky! If you're local or close enough to make a quick trip to the Greenville area, the exhibit is open until January 30, 2021. If you live far away, there is a virtual exhibit tour option just for you! The museum offers this virtual tour every Wednesday at 2pm through January 27, 2021.


Y'all. The costumes! These are the original costumes from the famous "Sisters" scene. You'll also see one of the original blue ostrich feather fans on the back wall. Those feathers have certainly lost their color over the years! They were a vibrant blue back in the day.

Fun fact: Did you know that Rosemary Clooney sang both parts for the "Sisters" routine?


Remember the "Mandy" scene? These original beaded costumes were so cool to see!


These military costumes were worn by Dean Jagger (left), Bing Crosby (center), and Danny Kaye (right).


One of our favorite songs in the movie is "Love, You Didn't Do Right By Me" featuring Rosemary Clooney. We love her voice! These were the white rhinestone gloves she wore during her performance of this song. The gloves are so sparkly that the picture looks blurry!


Here's the robe that Rosemary Clooney wore a few times throughout the movie. The museum had several scenes from the movie playing while we toured the exhibit, and it was crazy to see the vibrant red color of the robe in the movie contrasted with the real (and more dull colored) costume displayed. It's interesting to note, though, that the movie was filmed in Technicolor, so it's hard to know if this enhanced the color on the big screen or if the coloring of the costume has just faded over time.


Ok, we will not spoil any more of it for you! You should watch the movie again and then check out the exhibit. We think you'll really enjoy it!
