Holidays: Christmas Eve with My Department 56 Village Display

Come see my Department 56 Christmas Village Display
The mantel looks amazing with the Department 56 Village Display from Walking on Sunshine Recipes.

Merry Christmas Eve!

For the past few years I have been sharing with you my Department 56 Village collection
on Christmas Eve. 
This post has now officially become a tradition here on Walking on Sunshine.  
AND if you know me or follow me on Facebook, then you know I'm a huge
fan of traditions.  I love them!  
I love these houses and love how special they are to me.  
Every year my husband helps me put them up and we spend some time talking
about each one and the memories behind them.  

My husband and I started collecting them the year we purchased our first house.  
We don't have a huge collection, but every one means something to me 
and I love decorating the house with them.  

Department 56 Christmas Village Collection

The Bookstore and the Apple Valley School House.  
Olivia picked out the school house and was her gift to me the year she was in kindergarten.

The Old North Church that began our collection. I remember being a little upset with my husband that he spent so much money on this church at the time.  
But I'm so happy he purchased it and started our collection.

The Bike Shop.

Another beautiful church, The Deacon's Way Chapel, with stained glass windows.

And another church.

A Victorian Cottage.

The Bishop's Oast.

Department 56 Accessories 

I love adding accessories.

A dancing couple.

This year we did something different with the village
and moved them to the buffet table in the dinning room.

Another view with the village lit.  This looks so pretty at night! 

I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas!

We love our Department 56 Christmas Village and I'm sharing them with you here on Walking on Sunshine Recipes.
