Christmas Town 2020 - a Pandemic Project - Part 1
Every year, I set up a Christmas village, compiled from little houses left to me by my Dad, to ones I have purchased over the years. A tradition started by my Dad and one I proudly and lovingly continue.
Setting up Christmas Town signals the start of the holiday season for me. It gets me in the mood, sets my frame of mind for the coming weeks.
And every year, it is a challenge to find a suitable spot to set things up. In the past couple years, I have found myself curating my collection of Christmas houses, pulling out only a select few to set up in the space I can create in our home.
With the pandemic eliminating any work travel this year, I had more time at home and more time to tackle some projects. One such project I set for myself, with my wife's encouragement, was to create a display space for the village that would be stable, but also easy to set up and easy to take down.
