Christmas Mice Ornament

$ 5.99

These mice were created to accompany the annual Christmas at the Mill event at the Plimoth Grist Mill. Sold individually.
"By the banks of Town Brook
sits a charming old mill;
The water is rushing,
and the wheel’s never still.
And the miller grinds corn
throughout most of the year;
Except in December
when old Christmas is near...
So begins Christmas at the Mill — a delightful, rhyming story that is brought to life with actors and holiday activities every December at the Plimoth Grist Mill on historic Town Brook in Plymouth, Massachusetts. The Plimoth Grist Mill is a working replica of a 1636 mill where the Pilgrims brought their corn to be ground.
...One night the miller saw a mouse
shivering in the cold;
And gave her corn for supper;
(or that is what I am told)
And a little matchbox bed —
giving shelter from the storm,
With a tiny woolen blanket
to keep the field mouse warm.
That night the mouse had babies —
But not just once or twice,
She had seven mouselings!
and called them “Christmas mice”.
