Corinth Woman Creates Christmas Village 

A woman in Corinth is bringing her own touch of magic to the holiday season.Meghan Hayward takes us to her Christmas village.Thirty years ago Glenace Underhill started a Christmas village of ceramics, with just 28 pieces.”Every year I made new pieces and people gave me things, accessories to go with it. It just grew. So I had to have a bigger place to put it.”She now has a whole bedroom she brings the magic to, with about 550 pieces.But she remembers the first thing she ever painted, a Christmas house with Santa in it.”It’s good therapy. It’s relaxing.”Underhill says Christmas is her favorite time of year, she loves giving. And now she’s giving Christmas cheer to folks who have the pleasure of seeing her christmas village.”One of the things that fascinates people is the detail. There’s little tiny toys inside of the Christmas house. There’s two little people riding in one of the buggies, just detail.”Underhill says it takes a lot of time to put it all together. She usually starts assembling it the first of November.But she says it’s worth it and she’s pretty sure someone else will continue it once she’s done.”She said Gram someday I’m going to have a village like this. And I said you’ve already got it. When I’m done with it, it’s yours.”
