 Messenger photos by John Matuszak
 The Victorian gingerbread home created by Suzanne Karpus, owner of Cornucopia in Bexley, was a first-place winner in the Franklin Park Conservatory’s confectionary contest, and Alice Dreischarf, of Alice’s Piece of Cake in Powell, earned a second-place ribbon for her rendition of the Santa Maria. These and more than 30 other entries are on display, along with poinsettias and Currier and Ives prints that will enliven a season of holiday happenings.
 Susan Kibbey and family picked up a first-place finish for their gingerbread house, and the Frenly Schaefer-Lister family received third-place honors.
 The Enchanted Railroad, in the Palm Room of the Franklin Park Conservatory, is decked out for the holidays with lights and poinsettias. The display, designed by Paul Busse, features storybook scenes and trains running throughout.
 The Franklin Park Conservatory’s signature poinsettia tree is still part of the celebration of the holidays, along with numerous other varieties from Ohio and around the country.
