Ushering in the Joy of Christmas with Christmas Village

My Christmas memories go back many years here in Torrington, and many of those memories go back to standing in line at Christmas Village. I’ll never forget it. Those cold nights spent in hour long lines by a make shift fire to keep folks warm as we waited patiently to see Santa Clause and all of his little helpers. I can recall many times that I begged my parents to take me there. It’s one of those joyous childhood memories you’ll just never forget.

The hot chocolate. The reindeers. The elves. Christmas Village is what makes Torrington the ultimate Christmas town in Connecticut. No where else could you find such a magical place filed with holiday cheer, and today that holiday cheer was alive and well as folks from all over came to downtown Torrington to usher in the opening of Christmas Village. I felt like a kid again as I stood along main street watching the parade make their way through Main Street and onwards to Christmas Village where all the children in town seemed to gather around just for a visit with the big old jolly man himself.

No Christmas is complete without a visit to Torrington’s Christmas Village. It’s like Disney. It’s the place where dreams are made of. It’s the magical escape from reality we all need to relive those childhood memories of a Christmas past.

    Is it just me or does it seem like they opened way later than normal this year?


    1. I believe they have opened later this year, but hey, it’s open and there’s dreams to fulfill! Christmas lives on.

    It doesn’t matter that it opened later, it matters that it opened. This is a Torrington tradition that should be carried on for decades and decades to come. It’s good, clean, wholesome family fun. Thanks for the pictures Mike. There is nothing better than a memory that can make you smile and cry at the same time :o)


    1. I love taking strolls down memory lane. One of my favorite things to do on a daily basis!
