With built-in warm lights and glistening snow highlighting each home, this village is a one-step decorating solution that’ll zhuzh any table display.
Village Tea Light Candleholders
A modern, minimalistic take on traditional Christmas villages, this set creates a festive scene anywhere in the house, from windowsills to mantels and bookcases.

National Lampoon’s Griswold House
“Fire it up, Dad!” The National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation fan in your house will adore the iconic Griswold house covered in lights. Don’t forget to shop Department 56’s other pieces inspired by the holiday film, like Cousin Eddie in a robe emptying his RV and Clark’s car with a rather large tree on top, to really complete the scene.

This merry wooden village crafted from plywood sets the stage during the Victorian era. This village features amber light-emitting diode (LED) lights and a 39-inch plug-in cord. With a remote control and built-in timer, light this village once and let it run on autopilot all season long. You can also pick from two iterations—the village design or Advent calendar (which also comes in white).
If you’re a traditionalist who adores a nostalgic and warm Christmas style, look no further than Spode’s Christmas village. Each design celebrates vintage Christmas decor with a classic red and green color palette with ceramic figurines and collectibles you’ll want to pass on to your loved ones for generations.
