Dept 56 Village Under the Tree

July 18th, 2011 by Ralphie

Every piece in the set is on display under our Christmas tree. This year I will have the Christmas Story O gauge train set under the tree as well. Since the board is so big, I had to use a few pieces that do not belong to the set as fillers. It takes approx 12 hours to set this display up every year.
