The annual Christmas in the Village event to attract shoppers to our local businesses is always a popular event.

This is a taste of the sights.

on of the dozens of entries in the gingerbread house contest

Joe the barber always plays host the the Family Centre's craft for kids.

One of the local shop owners… he loves to dress the part.

I couldn't resist a bokeh shot… so many pretty lights everywhere!

My friend Erin's daughter visited with Mr. Claus….

…while her son visited with Mrs. Claus.

I thought of Feebs when I saw these ;))

And I thought of me when I saw these ;)))

gaze into the ball… what do you see?

Oh WoW Marjorie these are fantastic! I love the bokeh shot and your Santa and Mrs. Clause are magical. Your local merchant in #3 does look like a "Jolly Ole Elf" indeed. Wonderful Dickens atmosphere in #5. Those gingerbread houses are great, it must have been hard to pick a winner. Looks like Katie is having a hard time deciding too.....

Bwahahahaha! I love all of these. The shoes are great and the napkins kick ass.
I also love seeing little kids with Santa and Mrs Claus and not being afraid and crying. I adore Christmas don't you? Your little village looks like such a charming place. Maybe we should rethink the trip and I should come there.
Oh, and the gingerbread houses look great but ginger [b]shortbread[/b] is heaven for taste buds.
