I'm not quite sure where the idea came from that Santa drives a train full of Christmas gifts - I always thought he flew around on a sleigh pulled by reindeer! Regardless though, the idea of a Christmas train is just delightful.
Our local hardware and lumber store sets up this amazing train set every year in their store. It's just wonderful to watch, and to watch the kids (and adults I have to admit!) enjoying it so much. My family makes a point of going to that store every December whether we need to buy anything there or not, just to see the train. And if it's not running, we wait around till it starts up. Now that's a good sales technique they've got going! But you can also have your own Christmas train set. Now that would be lovely! Here are some great ideas.
