christmas village 2016 sam
The Christmas village was created for the enjoyment of our grandchildren and all those who have watched this project grow from just a few items to the ones that are featured in this village. Many people contribute, either with items for placement in the village or ideas and suggestions. Each year a different kind of theme is used, this year I have incorporated mountains representing the Canadian Rocky Mountains with all its beauty and splendor. Also the Netherlands is represented because of the gifts so graciously donated by my Dutch friends and family. The float in the parade is a city in Holland Alkmaar that we had the privilege to visit while on our Honeymoon nearly 51 years ago great Cheese is the drawing card and a Huge Tourist attraction and is probably the main product from that area Memories are on display throughout the village. Skaters, skiers, hockey players and in short children enjoying themselves OUTSIDE in nature. We truly hope those of you that view this enjoy it and that it stirs up some Warm Memories.
