A Third Look at the Finished Village 2010

The Gator Clan's annual Christmas Village was completed right on schedule. As you know, we begin assembling our collection of Department 56 village pieces on Veteran's Day with the goal of completing the display during the Thanksgiving Weekend each year. Our collection includes structures and accessories from the Victorian Village Series and the Dickens Village Series. It was officially "Lit" for the season on Saturday, Nov. 27th.

Here are some representative pictures of the final display (click the picture for a larger view, then use the back arrow to return here or you'll leave the site):
Here is a closeup look at one area of the display behind the sectional sofa.

The town's fire station is left center rear.  If you look closely, you'll see a fire brigade heading off on a mission.

The gentleman is watching the action in the Village Square.  (We'll show you that action next time.)

None of the display highlighted with a string of lights above the fireplace is Department 56.  On the entertainment center in the far left is our Department 56 Christmas Tree.  (That'll be highlighted next time, too.)

I'll change some of these pictures from time to time in the coming weeks so you can see more of the old Gator in Maine Village 2010. The village will be dismantled for another year in January.

We do not include all our pieces each year so that we can vary the village from time to time. All the pieces in our collection including the villages' names, except the skating pond, bonfire, cemetery and base materials, are registered trademarks or copyrighted by Department 56, a division on Enesco, LLC.
