ALL AGLOW FOR CHRISTMAS – Martin resident Denise Burdette offered a sneak peak of her Christmas village to five-year-old Samantha Bates Monday evening. The massive two-tiered village takes nearly two months to put together. Burdette said her Christmas village venture began in 1976 with five hand-made pieces. Over the years, friends and family added to her collection and her mother was a significant contributor to the finished village. Burdette will open her doors to the community Dec. 3 from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. to share her village with others. Her home is located at 214 Donoho Road outside of Martin. Everyone is welcome to attend her Christmas open house that day and share in the joy of the holiday season with her.
