Your Guide to Holiday Shopping

By Julie Kertes

'Tis the season for shopping, but don’t let the pressure of finding that perfect gift take the “happy” out of your holidays.



The Erie Canal Museum’s Gingerbread Gallery displays more than 30 houses, boats and other structures made with gingerbread, candy, cookies, crackers and other edible items. Companies, clubs, groups and others build the creations that together give the impression of a miniature storybook village. The gallery is open daily, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., through Jan. 8. On Dec. 24 and Dec. 31 it closes at 2 p.m., and it’s closed all day on Dec. 25 and Jan. 1. The museum is at 318 Erie Blvd. E. in Syracuse. Admission to the Gingerbread Gallery is $7 for adults, $5 for senior citizens, and $2 for those age 12 and under. For more information, call 471-0593.
