The Village is Lit!

We have completed our annual Christmas Village display depicting scenes from the Victorian Period and Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol. We also have a Christmas Tree scene to celebrate this time of year. We begin construction on Nov. 11th each year and light the village (signalling its completion) sometime during Thanksgiving weekend.

All the pieces are collectibles from Department 56 (C) Victorian and Charles Dickens collections.

We lit the Village late Thanksgiving afternoon. Here are some representative pictures of the completed project.

The long section behind the couch leading to a mountain.

The Window Scene...Every piece depicts something from Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol

The main display simply because it's the largest of the group.

Gator Daughter's mountain and woods scene, including a skating pond, on the main table.
