“Like anything you buy once a year for many years, it doesn’t take long to have a big collection,” Dance said.
Dance’s home on Jones Street in Winona is lovely and has a wide variety of Christmas collections and decorations. What a delight to find elements of the Christmas Village in most of the downstairs rooms. Most people set all of their Christmas Village collection in a room to enjoy in one location, but this year, Dance has small displays of her collection throughout the house.
In one room, there is a farm scene complete with a red barn and fenced-in pasture with cows and horses. In another room, there are a variety of houses with carolers singing, children playing and miniature vehicles, driving through the snow. One scene has “Christmas lights” on the house and yard display.
