Hannah and Emma Mead look over the Deseret Book window display, titled "The Mechanics of Christmas: The Gingerbread Cookie Factory" at Deseret Book in Salt Lake City in 2011. Deseret Book will unveil the 2012 window Thursday at 5 p.m.

SALT LAKE CITY — Deseret Book will unveil its Christmas window downtown on Nov. 15. The second-annual "Mechanics of Christmas" display will be revealed to the public at 5 p.m.

Although the window is not likely to be filled with candy designs, which was a tradition for the ZCMI Christmas windows, the Deseret Book window promises to be full of its own surprises, according to Deseret Book.

Last year the window displayed an old-time gingerbread cookie factory that filled the bookstore with a sweet aroma, and visitors were invited to take a gingerbread cookie for the road.

The theme of the 2012 window will remain a secret until the unveiling.
