Each year we try to get down to the center of town to stroll Christmas Village. My parents used to take me through the park when I was little and I have very fond memories of peeking into all of the little elf houses to see what was going on inside. More and more these houses have been adopted by giant businesses and the decor has moved away from the spirit of the season and more towards advertisement. Santa was even MIA on Christmas Eve. But this gave another opportunity to expand on the tale of St. Nicholas and his goings ons. However towards the end of our stroll a bit of handmade was depicted in one of the homes...A SOCK MONKEY! Anyway here are some pics from the village.
