Nancy will share with us her expertise and knowledge of Christmas customs throughout the decoration of Christmas trees displaying the crafts, ornaments and customs of the following countries: Holland, Mexico, Brazil, Italy, Ukraine, Japan, Sweden, England, Poland, and pioneer America. Come and visit the library to see Nancy's handiwork and learn about the different cultures and customs of other countries surrounding the Christmas season.
