You can decorate your home in many ways during the holiday season. One way is to put up a miniature Christmas village. These give you a chance to be creative, because you can create many kinds of Christmas Villages based on which pieces you purchase. During November and December, you can find such pieces in department stores at malls and shopping centers. You also can buy pieces for a Christmas Village from several websites.
