Every 2nd year for just about as long as I can remember my mother has set up her cherished Christmas village with great care and pride. The result is nothing short of stunning – a 100+piece diorama that encompasses an entire room and wow’s everyone who is fortunate enough to visit mom’s festive home over the holidays.
Mom has decided that this will be the last year that she will be setting up the whole thing (or what remains of it; I acquired nearly a dozen of her pieces last year) so she asked me to film it for posterity. There’s a lot to look at so settle in with a warm cup of something Christmassy and let the enormity of it wash over you like the light of the North Star.
