As you've read in recent offerings, we construct a Department 56 Victorian/Dickens Village as the major part of our Christmas season celebration. We begin on Nov. 11th with the goal of lighting the Village during the weekend following Thanksgiving. It remains up until early January.
In our last post, we gave you a progress report of what we accomplished the first weekend of work. Today's offering will be brief due to other circumstances. We have made progress, however.
First, our depiction of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, which we place annually in our front window, is nearly ready for the trees and snow and final tweaking.
We also have the final section base ready for the addition of structures, accessories including people, vendors, animals, skating pond, and other things.
I'm told there's a small possibility we may complete the project this weekend, a full week ahead of schedule. If that does happen, we will wait until Thanksgiving for the official lighting of the Village.
I hope you have the opportunity to fully enjoy this beautiful but chilly November weather this weekend. This is really quite a spell of good weather.
