The Mitford Snowmen, A Christmas Story by Jan Karon

Mitford has a snow day and one of the shop owners on main street inspires a snowman building contest and everyone on main street,  from the Pastor of the Episcopal Church to the town’s Mayor,  comes outside to play.  After the sweetness of this day, the Mayor designates it as The First Annual Mitford Snowman Jubilee and buys donuts for all of the 26 participants.

For me, Jan Karon paints such rich and colorful stories about Mitford and its residents. This is about one amazing day, that is very moving and memorable.  There are delightful illustrations, of snowmen and snowwomen, in the booklet to assist the imagination.  This is one of my treasurers.
