PHOTO of the Day: Dickens Houses are Up!

A sure sign of the holidays in Maplewood Village.


The Dickens Village Houses are up in Ricalton Square, thanks to a crew of dedicated DPW workers. The houses are not yet decorated, but will be in time for their official unveiling on Dec. 8. That's also the day of the Village Christmas tree lighting and Santa's arrival by fire truck, with the menorah lighting following on Dec. 11.

(By the way, this year is the 200th anniversary of the birth of Charles Dickens).

The Village is also fully decked out in garland, wreaths and holiday lights.

For a complete schedule of holiday events in Maplewood Village -- including a petting zoo, holiday stories, concerts, carolling, sleigh rides and more -- visit the Maplewood Village Alliance site.

Stay tuned to Patch for more details on everything holiday-related in the Village and throughout the township.

And one day later, snow falls to complete the look of our winter's Dickens Village
