Christmas Village


I'm one of those fans of Dickens-style Christmas villages, the ones with strolling carolers, lots of snow, Victorian homes, ivy-covered cottages, skating couples and bakery shops. But here's a miniature village with a Walmart!The Cahaba Center for Mental Health sponsored its annual Christmas Village this week, and part of the pleasure of attending was viewing a modern town and all its holiday activity. Visitors also got to purchase crafts made by the center's clients, and I saw no sign of any Ebenezer Scrooges.

Boy, that tells you a lot about our culture! What would a town be without a Walmart?

That would be neat to play around with.
