From the left; you can see the kids skiing from the house on top of the hill connected to another house by the cable cars. These are kids sliding down! Remember how you used to enjoy your slide?

Next stop, Meiji Fiber Optic with Falls (YN-BF). If there is something that is always included in Meiji’s Christmas Village Collection year after year, it is the moving train. But now, we included another twist to spice it up. Aside from the moving train on top, is a fiber optic waterfall at the bottom. Be amazed on how it changes its color after 3 seconds.

With Meiji Christmas Village Santa and Running Reindeer (YN-SR), I’m sure you’ll end up singing the famous Christmas song “Santa Claus is coming to Town!” Moms? These are for the young ones looking forward to Christmas Eve. See how Santa’s on their way to deliver gifts for the good kids this year? Personally, I remember myself crying for how many days when the time my parents forgot to put a card to my gifts, and I thought I was naughty on Santa’s list (Hahaha!). I can’t help myself but to remember those days every time I see this Christmas village. :)

See that elf at the bottom carrying gifts? I ‘m curious whose that lucky kid who will receive that.

I can already hear the jingles and the bells as Christmas draws closer day by day! With the once-a-year holiday right around the corner, there is but one thing left to do and that is to get decoratin’!

Can’t quite decide how to go about designing your home this year? Worry no more for Meiji is your sanctuary in finding the best decorations to lighten up your home this Christmas season! There are three things that you cannot miss out on: Fiber Optic trees, Pull-Up Christmas Trees and Christmas Villages! Each one of these decorations are definitely going to make Christmas for you and your family a very merry one!

 

Fiber Optic Trees

When it comes to tree decorations, fiber optic is the way to go; the benefits to be gained simply cannot be overlooked! If it’s your first time to hear of fiber optic Christmas trees and are curious about it’s good traits, then you are in for a treat!

christmas tree with balls

To sum it up, there are three great benefits that fiber optic trees will give you and these are:

1. Cost Efficiency – Working with a 10-20W fuse (varies upon model) you can expect an electricity bill that will shock you, in a good way! Not only will it give you surprisingly lower bills compared to previous Christmas decorations, it also saves you from having to spend time and money on busted light! With the fiber optic tree you will not have to worry about changing old lights that ruin the overall quality of your decoration. You can use it every year and not have to worry about lacking lights on some parts of your tree.

2. Safety – Questions about the safety of Christmas lights had caused quite the stir globally. The last thing you would want to see lighting up the village on Christmas day is your house on fire! Fiber optic trees do NOT generate extensive heat to get your house on fire. You can rest easy on your living room as you drink your Christmas champagne without  having to worry about your pet cat going ablaze. Of course it is always advisable to keep the adapter far away from the fireplace.

3. Hassle-Free – Fiber optic trees are so easy to assemble it will make you want to go on a quick jog! All you have to do is open its branches and switch it on. Now, when Christmas season is over and you have to go back to work (harsh, I know) simply close the branches and you’re done! Time for another run at the oval!

Personally, our fiber optic tree lasted us 8 years, so if you’re looking for a good investment then you’ve found one!

 

Pull-Up Christmas Tree

Not really into the Christmas shopping craze? Not a fan of having to fight an epic battle with enemy shoppers in the mall? Well, Meiji has just the thing for you: The Pull-Up Christmas Tree! A one-pull-all-inclusive Christmas tree that will have you set-up and done in minutes. The Pull-Up tree comes with lights, decors and garlands that will surely drive Christmas right up your visitor’s hearts!

Setting up the Pull-Up Christmas tree is easy as a bee! All it takes are 3 steps:

2. Pull up the tree and place it on the stand.

There you have it guys! Don’t forget that the spirit of Christmas is all about giving! Merry Christmas!

 

Small houses laden with snow surrounded by Christmas trees and little people made of porcelains or poyresins. This familiar household decoration is even made grander by surrounding it with brightly colored LED lights that truly enliven the scene. Have you guessed it yet? Right! It’s a miniature Christmas village!

Christmas in the Philippines is characterized by several traditions. One of them is the display of the “belén” — a tableau depictMoving Train Christmas Villageing the birth of Jesus Christ, the reason for the season, in the manger with Mary and Joseph, the three kings, the shepherds and barn animals. Most of the time, the Christmas belen also includes the star and the angel. Through time and the influence of western culture, the nativity scene have been extended to a miniature Christmas village depicting several houses, snowed in driveways, couples, parents and children and even Santa Claus with his sleigh. This tiny community brightens up any home and any young kid’s eyes. For children, especially those that come from a tropical country like the Philippines, the sight of a Christmas village awakens dreams of  faraway places covered with snow during the holidays. It fuels the fantasies of a white Christmas, making snow angels and falling asleep in front of the chimney waiting for Santa Claus to arrive.

So this coming Yuletide season, consider starting up your own Christmas Christmas Village with kidsvillage and asking your kids to help you organize and design it. Make it a yearly tradition aside from putting up a Christmas tree and shop for one village addition each year. This experience will not only allow you to share with them that holiday feeling we all still feel giddy about (whatever age we are now!) but also give them special Christmas memories with you that they will always remember as they grow up.  You’ll see, your Christmas lights would not be the only ones to light up inside your homes.

Christmas Santa Make your household a real Christmas Village this year and echo the cheer and LOVE that the season brings in! Good luck with that new holiday must-do with your family and do not forget the real reason for the season! Merry Christmas to you!
