Christmas in Connecticut - 2014
I know I'm not the only one feeling the January blues already, so I'd love to bring back some Christmas spirit with a truly memorable photoset. This was the last year for Mr. & Mrs. Setti's Christmas Village display on Midwood Road in Norwalk, CT and it was by far one of the best I've ever seen with over 150,000 lights and 400 hand-carved characters. In fact, their Christmas display and story was so great this year that they won "The Great Christmas Light Fight" on ABC-TV! After 26 years of putting up their lights and display for the children of Norwalk, Rick and Joan Setti are closing the village, so we made sure to visit them at least 3 different times this season with our close relatives to take it all in and to capture these photos in case you missed it. Enjoy!
We had the pleasure of meeting the Settis a few days before Christmas and could truly see how passionate they were about their Christmas Village. "It's all for the kids," said Rick Setti. We spoke about all of the people they have met and the new friends they have made by putting up this display for the past 26 years. They cherish every year and memory and hope that they have inspired others to spread Christmas cheer with their own displays.
On behalf of everyone, thank you Mr. and Mrs. Setti for the years of hard work and dedication for hosting Santa Setti's Christmas Village for all to enjoy and create memories that will last a lifetime. We wish you all the best for retirement. God bless you both.
