Holiday Decorating around the Office

Every year around the holidays, employees of the Canadian Museum of Nature focus their energies on a bit of festive decorating around the office. The decorating can get a bit… competitive at times, with different departments vying for most impressive (or tacky) display. This being the last week before the holidays, I thought I’d keep things light and post some photos of the Palaeobiology department’s efforts so far. Got some of your own paleontology-related holiday décor to show off? Why not tweet it with the hashtag #PaleoHolidayDecor?

A close-up of some of our “ornaments”, which we craft anew every year. I was hoping to have an all-ceratopsian tree this year, but democracy worked against me.

Few people know that the raptorial claws of Troodon evolved for hanging up cheap Christmas tree decorations.

Even fewer people know that the ceratopsians’ preferred menu item was snowmen.

Even Herman the Dinosauroid likes getting into the holiday spirit. (With apologies to Dr. Dale Russell.)
