Why Church.. dont be so petty.. a large-scale graveyard with massive tombstones would give something xtra to everyone! -TLG does not need to invent any new pcs since everything is readily available + you could pack it together with Halloween skeleton sets ;) 

Actually that would be a cemetery if we wanna be nitpicks. Technically, a graveyard is only a graveyard when attached to a church, hence the 'yard' part. ? Otherwise it's a cemetery. Though a lot of people use the words the same.

Just snagged this off of Reddit before it was pulled down.

I’m just the opposite. I want to set up a huge Winter Village display, so I’m not interested in play value - just display value. I want to set everything up and then just look at it.

I feel like the building itself should be deeper. But I can’t remember how deep Santa’s Workshop is. I feel like they are similar? In which case it’s fine.

I believe that, with the exception of the cottage, all the buildings in the WV line are pretty shallow front-to-back.  I have a feeling this will fit in just fine, though I think it will easily be the tallest building in the village.

It's funny, I'm usually wondering how people can be so negative when we first get pictures... and this time it's the complete opposite. Everyone seems to like it! I hated it and was originally gonna ***** and moan about it.... but it is starting to grow on me. I like everything except the tree lol

I like it. Just wish the station have a bit more depth. Get rid of the ice rank and the tree and spend more effort on the station. I was expecting something more complete, perhaps, like the Bakery or Toy Shop? They can always sell a Christmas Tree as a polybag.

Agree - I also think that tree looks pretty bad.

I would guess they were trying to do a different kind of tree build, which I guess they did succeed in doing.

what is the purpose of that dog minifigure.. ? Do dogs generally stroll around firehouses and such.. ?

Dalmatians, in particular, we're used in the late 19th century and early 20th century to run along-side horse-drawn fire wagons to serve as a barrier between the horses/wagon and other people and animals on the street, as the wagon raced through to a fire.  A short description of the history can be found here, for example: https://www.livescience.com/33293-dalmatians-official-firehouse-dogs.html  

If you ever happen to visit Boston with little kids, the Boston Fire Museum is a great place to take them. It's small, but loaded with historical trivia such as this.

It has bothered me all weekend that I couldn’t remember the name of that Joe. It finally came to me - it’s Leatherneck.

 

I believe you mean Footloose. Leatherneck was the infantry trooper replacement for him a couple seasons/figure waves later. As such, they had similar looks.
