my sister started collecting these miniature Christmas village ceramic pieces many years ago, but then she moved abroad and wasn’t able to take them with her. So this year was the first time that they’ve ever been completely set up, and my mom had it set up as a surprise for when my sister arrived for her visit and walked through the door. she loved it!! i still can’t understand how my mom managed to set it all up in one night AND do loads of unpacking AND get some sleep, but the Christmas village looked wonderful.
