You're no longer at the mercy of the AccuWeather holiday forecast, because the Butterfly House(15193 Olive Boulevard, Chesterfield; 636-530-0076 or www.butterflyhouse.org) is guaranteeing a white Christmas come snow or come shine. For the month of December, the Butterfly House's white Paper Kite butterfly population will grow to more than 1,000 for the Snow in the Tropics holiday event. The free-flying butterflies become a living snowfall, while dozens of white orchids help to create a winter wonderland inside the 85 degree tropical conservatory. The Butterfly House is open from 9 a.m to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday, and the butterflies will be flitting about through Saturday, December 31. Snow In The Tropics is included with your regular admission fee ($4 to $6).
Tuesdays-Sundays; Dec. 27-31. Starts: Dec. 1. Continues through Dec. 24, 2011
