A Lifetime Christmas Shed Downtown

christmas_village_streetview_640.jpgSince its beginning in 1962, Christmas Village in Ogden, Utah has grown to an extraordinary seasonal attraction. Each year thousands of tourists and citizens come to view the Christmas lights and cottages, drawing visitors from great distances as well as local families who have made it part of their holiday tradition. Spectators find themselves in a dazzling winter wonderland set aglow with Christmas lights and a unique setting of cottages modeled after Santa’s village at the North Pole.

christmas-cottage-1.jpgThis year, Lifetime joined in the local community Christmas tradition by transforming a Lifetime shed into a cottage. Complete with windows, flooring and steel trusses, the shed naturally made for a great cottage in this winter wonderland setting! The steel-reinforcements on its plastic walls and roof gave Santa, the elves, and their woodland friends a sound shelter. When we assembled the shed, our cottage-building experts (prototype shop professionals by day) also cut through the front doors and inserted polycarbonate panels-- the same material used in some of our basketball backboards and shed windows, so smaller visitors could easily see inside.

The Lifetime cottage is themed “Santa’s Backyard”, and one of our engineers and his wife did a fantastic job decking out the space with elves, lights, candy, and a Lifetime Basketball Hoop and Helicopter Teeter-Totter that animates with the push of a button from outside! It was pushed so much the first few nights, they actually had to go and check on it. :)christmas-cottage-2.jpg  If you’re in downtown Ogden this season, be sure to check out the Christmas Village and Lifetime's cottage!   

              SANTA'S BACKYARD
 
Tis the day after Christmas and as we all know,
Santa is having a party at the North Pole.
 
The Elves are all there to have lots of fun,
Even a couple of Reindeer decided to come.
 
In Santa's Backyard there is plenty to do,
Tetherball, teeter-totter, shooting hoops too.
 
The Candy Maker is sharing his favorite treat,
His canes are delicious and oh, so sweet.
 
The Birds all think the trapeze a great swing,
But Santa just wants to dance and sing.
 
Being together is a wonderful sign,
That making memories will last a Lifetime.

Beautiful and looks like fun. I'm hoping to visit with my Grandsons this year. I live in Texas but they live in Clearfield, Utah. Hope we get to do that.
