  2. Wow! these are super cute little houses for Christmas and what a lovely idea. Even better you could buy them as Christmas presents for that person who loves to dress their home up for celebrations. I like the lit houses from Number 3, The Dawn of Creation as you could have them on show all year round. We have a tradition of getting all the decorations out and putting them up together on a given night. We put music on, sing and drink of course. It’s like getting two Christmas days.

    I also like the wooden houses too. Thanks for this post.
