A Snowy Village Tradition

Every year I fuss a little about not having the time to do it all....
I tell myself the house is decorated enough without it....
Then I go down in the basement and begin rifling through boxes...
And each little building, from the antique shop, to the train station, to the toy store....
And every little figurine, from the sledders, to the kids on the playground, to the choir....
Bring a smile to my face and add a bit of joy to my heart...
Because this is part of our Christmas tradition.
Happy Holidays from my village to yours!

Lovely Christmas village! Brings back wonderful memories of when my parents would create their Christmas village every year.

SO sweet! I have a number of villages but, this year I had a disc blown in my back & just couldn't get down under the tree to put a village with my Santa Train. This year I'm sad but, it's just packages down there. But, your village brightened my day. Merry Christmas!

What a wonderful festive village. I'm sure its a ton of work to put up every year but well worth the effort. I'm sure it brings joy to everyone who see's it!
