Lego Christmas Village

    Posting this here instead of Lego forum as I am not a purist :) I just decided this year that I wanted to have a Lego Christmas village :) as a main decoration.

    I planned on adding one piece each year.... But I may have more the one already. Thanks to a husband who was happy to have an easy birthday gift option and rewarding myself after finishing a PhD. There are original pieces but they are no longer in stock so cost hundreds which with one little girl, a mortgage etc etc I can't afford :) so I am making my own little village. Will prob start building in Nov.

    Anyone else do this?

    Here is what I have so far

    Gingerbread-House

    Winter-Holiday-Train

    Changing-Seasons

    Winter-Toy-Shop

    Santa-Toy-Workshop

    wow great idea. would love to do this for the nephews.. Must cost a pretty penny alright though.. I was sick looking at the price of hte lego sets in the Smyths cat this year.. How do parents afford it

    Oh lights that's a good idea....if not too expensive must do some research. I have the city advent calendar Irishgal2000, got it for 17 euro in smyths so will add those pieces as I go along too!!

    I can only justify the price as I had money saved for an extra years tuition which I don't need anymore :)

    well done to you then a nice treat for yourself... You will have to send pics when you have them all up.. Are you buying these from Amazon or which sites do you use

    Hi Milly,

    Some I got off amazon, some were cheaper due to bonus items off the Lego store. I will be buying the last piece from the Lego store next week as you get another free Holiday Calendar with it so I can add those too.
