My Papa has a HUGE Department 56 village! I can't even tell you how long he has been collecting these pieces, but he has pieces from a variety of their village collections, and it takes up one whole wall in his living room. He goes all out decorating it. It has the Times Square building with the ball ready to drop for the new year, Buckingham Palace, the Tower of London, Big Ben, a skating rink, a number of Christmas trees, a mountain with waterfall, and even an elevated subway system! It is so cool! I love to look at it and see all the different people and accessories that he has placed outside the buildings. Here are just a few pics of this enormous Christmas village.
