Local couple’s 140-piece Christmas village radiates joy


Dave and Carol Swiggum, of Prairie du Chien, have a Christmas village that takes up half their living room. It includes 140 buildings, and Dave knows it’s that many because he recently replaced all the old lighting with LED lighting.

In addition to the village that seems to never end, the Swiggums have lots of little villagers, workers, animals and other accessory pieces to accompany the buildings. (Photos by Correne Martin)
