The keepers of the Christmas village
Roger and Leona Schiller's place in rural Wadena looks like a quiet country home but inside is a bustling village with children skating, a choir singing and Santa ho-ho-hoing.
Roger, 73, constructed an 18-foot-long and 4-foot-wide Christmas village made of miniature Department 56 homes, shops, churches and various buildings in his basement. The buildings are lit from the inside and cast a warm glow on the village. Some of the pieces also make sounds and move.
