Christmas Village

Christmas Village

Welcome to the tour of our Christmas Village..which is the last installment of our Christmas Home Tour!!! (If you missed previous posts, the entire series can be found here.)

Ever since I was small, I have been intrigued by Christmas Villages. My maternal great-aunt always had one up, and I looked forward every season to seeing it. There is something magical about these small towns, complete with their own atmosphere and people…..getting to peek in whenever you want.

Perhaps it is a way to create a refuge….or a magical place that only exists in our dreams.

Our village sits in a prominent spot in our main living room, right under the wall-mounted T.V.

At night, it glows warmly…inviting the passerby to peek inside.

Ready to travel to this small, quaint town? C’mon….let’s go!!

At the other end of town, campers load up wood into their trucks…preparing to find refuge from the storm.

Every year, I set the village up to tell a different story….

What will next year’s story bring?

I truly hope you enjoyed the look into our village as much as we do. It gets a lot of attention from visitors, especially the kids!!
