When it began in 2003, there were 37 trees available for bidding. The event has grown to include a recordnumber of trees, wreaths, and auction items with over 7,000 people visiting the showcase each year.

O Tannenbaum is a German phrase meaning "Oh Christmas Tree". The lyrics of the song express the beauty of an evergreen tree and how it stays true in form and color year round.

The Tioga County Historical Society Museum's event brings a similar delight, pleasure, and joy to the community. It is a special time for children, adults, organizations and corporations to experience friendship, camaraderie and the joy of the season. Children can write and mail letters to Santa and even visit him when he stops by the museum!

This year's event theme is "Gingerbread Land" and you are invited to visit the more than 100 trees, wreaths, and other items up for auction.
