Christmas Decorations Christmas is a hands-on art. From the lights we put on the house to the decorations we put on the tree to the great foods we eat in the process, Christmas is a time of doing -- and this is the place we gather to talk, plan and share.

Thank you for the kind words everyone. The collection is my late Father-in-Laws. He use to put up a display that would put what I have up to shame. I was always at awe everytime I saw his display, and after he passed, I wanted to keep his tradition alive.

And an overall night picture of what is competed.




I still have to cover the foam in front, though I am not sure how, and hide those nasty cords. Tommorrow some of the other decorations start getting put up.

Your village is beautiful. You have quite a collection there. Now after seeing this, I can;t wait to put up my Christmas village. it's not nearly as big as yours, but beautiful just the same.

Wow! The Christmas village is SO nice! I haven't seen anything like this before and I wish I could see it in real. :] It reminds me the nostalgic Christmas from 'A Christmas Carol'. ^^ It looks like you had to put a lot of hard work into this decoration but it's definitely worth it. :]
