BERRIEN SPRINGS -- The Berrien County Historical Association has a number of activities planned at the 1839 Courthouse Museum to kick off the holiday season, ranging from a play to a Christmas celebration.

On Friday the association will present O. Henry's "The Gift of the Magi." The one-act play, adapted by Anne Coulter Martens for the stage, shows the story of a young couple unable to afford presents for each other on their first Christmas together.
