Christmas Village

(Not Our Christmas Village)

Don't get ahead of yourself if you want to maintain control of where you are going.
(Richard E. Henthorn, 2 March 2014, after Perry Tilleraas, The Color of Light, 1 March 2014)

Our 2014 Christmas Village is set up. I used those thumb sized Christmas lights to illuminate most of the houses.  I switched to a string of of fifteen sockets.  A few houses and lighthouses have their own cords for the lights. 

We added three new items this year, purchased at the University Park community yard sale.
  • Winery
  • Covered Bridge
  • Clock Tower
The main display is set up in the living room on the buffet and a folding table.
  • Barn and Silo
  • Butcher Shop
  • Churches (2)
  • Victoria Train Station
  • Ceramic Christmas Trees (2)
  • School
  • School (with movable brass bell)
  • Sweet Shop
  • Santa's Workshop
  • Church (with plastic window)
  • City Hall
  • Daily Blizzard Newspaper
  • Covered Bridge
  • Blythe Pond Mill
  • Village Inn
  • Clock Tower
  • White & Black Lighthouse
  • Brown Lighthouse
  • Crystal Creek Winery
