There was a day we had both a Hummel manger and a full on Department 56 Christmas village, complete with lampposts, peppermint candy lanes, snow and the like. Perhaps some day when grand babies are old enough to enjoy it, we'll revisit those days.
For now I keep things simple.
Ornaments adorn this unconventional tree
and an ornament garland rests before the reindeers of 'Twas the Night Before Christmas...'
Mark will be making a Christmas breakfast of German pancake, and we'll have a relaxing day. Wishing each of you the day and year of your dreams!
