friends of the swanton public library in swanton, ohio, hosted an annual holiday home tour to raise monies to support and enhance library facilities, materials, services and programs. they required a limited edition, all-in-one admission ticket, event program and souvenir favor, featuring photographs, addresses and descriptions of each decorated home on the self-guided tour. "on the seventh day of christmas my true love sent to me seven swans-a-swimming..." lyrics from the twelve days of christmas yuletide carol, arranged by frederic austin in 1909, seemed a perfect nod to the quaint village of swanton. After the event, the envelope accordion book could be refilled for gift card giving, holiday photo bragging and store receipt wrangling.
