For Hazel Ruth Brooks, it started in the early 1990s.
Tim Scheiber became a fan after a childhood visit to a friend's house at Christmastime.
Now, both Brooks and Scheiber spend hours every year setting up elaborate displays depicting life in a small village at Christmas.
Well, maybe not so small - Brooks' display engulfs her dining room, and Scheiber fills his enclosed porch with the scene.

The Huntington North High School boys' varsity basketball team outlasted host New Haven with a 58-57 overtime victory on Wednesday, Dec. 11.
Senior Keenan Leichty sank a pair of clutch free throws for the Vikings at the end of regulation to knot the game up at 52-52 and force the extra period. Leichty's performance at the charity stripe set the tone for overtime, where Coach Rob Irwin's squad made 6 of 8 freebies to take the game.
The Vikings led by nine points midway through the final quarter before New Haven fought back to take the lead.
