Canadian Woman Opens Up Indoor Holiday Village To Neighbors

Posted: Updated:

Finally at Five...Christmas Eve is a week away, and most people have their decorations up...but it took a little longer for one woman a little longer in Canada because she had to decorate an entire village.
Gail Snelgrove has collected her Christmas Village for over 20 years, which has too many pieces to count.
After eight years in storage she took the display out to pay tribute to her husband who passed away just over a year ago.
She says it took her over a week to set up all the tiny houses into a community of holiday cheer spending at least 50 hours putting it together.
Once she hauled out the village - friends and neighbors from all over started to gather in her sunroom.
Gail says the time is worth it when she sees people's faces when they come through.
