12 Days of Christmas—Collections Style!

With Christmas just a few days away, we've gathered some items from our collection to share with you! Take a brief stroll through the history of the holidays with us as we look at these 12 days of Christmas.

It's OK if you find yourself humming a tune or two while looking at these items. Some might even inspire you to sing out loud. 

We promise. It's OK. Some say that singing out loud is the best way to spread Christmas cheer!
