FIRST UP, By special request--an oldie but goodie---many thanks to reader DC who turned us on to...Kraków szopka..a Polish Christmas tradition originating from Kraków, Poland, and dating back to the 19th century. An unusual and characteristic feature of the szopka is the use of historical buildings of Kraków as backdrop for the Nativity of Jesus--gorgeous, detailed models----read and see more here http://bit.ly/2rwIeth
That's followed by a fab 1964 promo ad for singer Paul Anka and by special request, one of Flickr friend Matthew's past Christmas villages; the putz houses are new but quite extraordinary. Again, click on the photos and links.
