A Modern Christmas Carol: Christmas Voices by John Callas
For the past 24 years, the Callas Family has developed a tradition of building a Christmas Village out of Department 56 collectable pieces. The village started out under their Christmas tree with a few selected pieces. Each year the collection grew. It has expanded into a platform that is 5 ½ feet wide and 22 feet long.
With over 800 trees, hand carved mountains, gondolas, skiers, trains, special lighting that was created and built specifically for the village, and Charles Dickens porcelain houses, the Callas family is known to be one of the world’s leading collectors at this scale. The village is built every other year as it takes 6 weeks to construct. – And no two years look alike.
“Christmas Voices” was inspired by this collection and the love of the spirit of Christmas. It is a modern day “Christmas Carol” that will warm the hearts of children as well as adults. It has family values, original music, and will once again make the audience believe in miracles.
