    Love the ice lakes there!

    and meeting the polar bears again at that huge tree!

    All these shops must have happy employees, working with all that fun stuff there!
    The Sweet village is in a shop too. Even the pavement has that sugarly look that spontaneously makes the enamel of your teeth jump off by the look at it *g*
    Never enough polar bears right?


    Yes a great atmosphere all around for costumeres and employees. Must be really great to work over there!
    Really thankful for the time in this place called home and for keeping it a good place to keep coming back to

    In Aralia shop they had this nice green Township table to have your Christmas dinner in style...

    And the Christmas village has a huge bridge like the one in Duiven.


    Under the bridge there are some caves that were inspiring too.


    The cable car could be extended by real cable car freaks with rescue helicopters snow blowers and a remote controlled snow shovel. You would only have one hobby!

    And now ladies and Gents we finally arrived at the other huge Christmas show: Intratuin Halsteren!



    After this entrance (has anyone seen the moose?) We arrive in a large hall that is dressed in a winter atmosphere.
    Hot chocolate and chocolate waffles abound.

    It's really overwhelming to see in the following pics then so many towns (and shops) in the Netherlands re-building little Townships!

    In that same room is a huge display with penguin families Orcas and Walrus.

    A small playground for children is included in this winter setting.
    Wanna see the overview? Click on the big picture!

    In Halsteren they choose two different ways of showing Christmas houses.
    For the 'Village' way they choose the Theme "ICE AGE" with the animals from that movie li Inc on huge ice rocks.

    There are also more subtle displays on the walls of the room where these enormous creatures are exhibited.
    And these five pics are linked to videos!


    More Township more Farming. You may even see Santa riding his sled




    And if you like the theme that much you can even build a Halloween Village!

    Thanks!

    And amazing ideas in the pics and videos in post #59 - I like them (a bit) better than the huge things in #58, and not in the mood for Halloween atm naturally (just a season thing!), but an "Eerie Go Round" ... Too good!
