The Tiniest Winter Wonderland
By Colleen Messina
  

1     Winter is magical. Christmas lights sparkle in dazzling colors across the snow. Window decorations have smiling elves in them. Santa's workshop is on display. One winter wonderland is very small. A snow globe might have the tiniest winter wonderland of all!
 
2     A snow globe is a clear sphere. It is often made of glass. It is full of water. It has a small scene in it. The globe has a surprise. If a person shakes it, snow falls! Tiny white particles swirl inside the sphere. It looks like a miniature blizzard.
 
3     The first snow globes may have been made in France. The idea may have been based on glass paperweights. In 1889, a fantastic snow globe was on display. It was at the Paris Exposition. The snow globe had the Eiffel Tower in it. People liked this globe. People took these globes home. They liked to remember their trip.
