As I am decorating the house for Christmas, I am overwhelmed by the childhood memories that are flooding my brain. I don’t know if its just because I am getting older ( did I say that out loud?) or because I am continuing tradition from my family.
Now I could never duplicate they way my mom set up her village, but I could feel how much love she had for this tradition at Christmas time with every piece I took out of the box. She would spend hours getting everything just right.
Every night after it got dark outside, we would turn on the lights in the village.
I remember all of it. I can only hope one day that my children will continue with this tradition.
Do you have a Christmas village? What kind do you have and how many hours/days does it take you to set it up?
