Christmas at the Briggs – an album

by Maralyn Fink

On Monday I went to Briggs District Library to check out the Christmas displays.

In the entrance way was a display of old cookie cutters that I remember some that my mother had and that I now have. This brought back some memories of the good old days.

There was a nice display of Snow Babies, Dept. 56 Village and more. Putting up the Village looked to be very time consuming as well as the other displays. As you can see by the photos, a stop at the library would be worth your while.
