One Christmas evening, a group of friends set off to enjoy a dinner of celebration at a small country inn nestled in a quiet river town. As they rounded a bend in the road, they saw the small, old-fashioned village decorated for the holidays. The lights, like fairies, glowed and sparkled amid the freshly fallen snow. All evening, the conversation was full of Christmas memories and the visions the tiny town had evoked. Amidst the jovial banter and magical memories, the idea for a lighted Christmas village was born. That spark of an idea became a reality when, in 1976, Department 56 introduced a series of six hand-painted, ceramic buildings. The rest is history.
It would not be Christmas with Cousin Eddie dropping in unexpectedly with his beat up RV.
Hand crafted in ceramic, a built in battery pack illuminates the interior and strands of lights decorate the top.
Other finishing touches include the acrylic windows and painting for an authentically dirty look.
Battery pack takes two AA batteries, not included.
