I found my Christmas spirit today and have been decorating all day long. This little toy village was handmade for me by my mother and sister. We grew up with this village under my mother's tree and later she made me one for my very own. Don't forget you can enlarge each photo if you really want to go inside Christmas Village...
My sister's childhood song of the Little Toy Village haunts my mother and I as we put up our villages at Christmas. She used to sing that song all the time and I have never been able to find all the words to it...
"There's a little toy village, underneath the tree.
Sweetest little town you will ever see.
There's a Little Toy Village underneath the tree
And it comes to life on Christmas."
If anyone does know it, I would love to have all the words. Perhaps these carolers know them?
These boys are having a grand snowball fight at the pond in front of the toy shop. Of course, in Christmas Village, the toy shop is the largest building in town.
Carolers and bell ringers are everywhere...
People are busy preparing for Christmas and searching for just that right tree to bring home. Uh oh boys! Watch out as the school master is on his way to the village square.
And just what are these little rascals getting into?
Do you have your yule log ready for Christmas eve to keep you warm?
Don't you wish you lived in Christmas Village?
