"We Beat the Deadline!"

Yes, all the Village Videos that were submitted,

before the deadline to be included in the 2021

TVC Village Video Hall of Fame,

have been posted. What a week! We have the largest

posting we've ever had. Twenty Five videos, from all

over the world. Check out the listed locations, one each

from United Kingdom, Netherlands, Germany, Belgium,

and Philippines, two from Italy and the U.S. and three

from France. We've never had such a diverse posting.

And guess what - Villagers are the same everywhere.

The other 13 were listed as unknown locations. I sure

would have liked to know their locations. And, the rush

is on. Over half of the posted videos were completed in

just the last week. Also, the total running time is by far

the largest - almost three and a half hours! We didn't

think there was enough time for everyone to view so

much, so we moved the Hall of Fame schedule back

few days. Now you have more time to view these

great efforts of Inspiration, Information & Fun!

. . .and of course . . . don't forget to tell your friends.



It's Not Over!

Yes, the last Village Videos for the 2021 Hall of Fame

Selections have been posted, but guess what - 2022

is coming! We want to share your Village Videos with

the world. The first month's selections for 2022 are

already half full. Send us the links to yours - now.

Be part of the Inspiration, Information & Fun.

It's YOUR community - share & enjoy.


Please Note:

2021 Village Video Hall of Fame

The times shown are not current. They're just

when I noticed them and captured the image.



TVC's Three Christmas Gnomes.

What a coincidence their names match our tagline.

Who'd a-thunk it?


December 2, 2021, still finds us listed #1

when searching on google. The Resident Evil

franchise has dominated the field, with tons of

listings, but thanks to you, we are still at the top.

A facebook group and Lemax made the first page

also. Department 56 has two listings on page three.


The number one independent website for Villagers.

Thank You, Thank You!





- an interesting statistic - at least to some -

our current top countries

(for number of Villagers who have visited us)

UPDATED: Thursday, December 2nd

Here's the top 15 of the 185 countries that have visited

so far. As villaging season picks up around the world, our

numbers have been picking up steam as more villagers

find us. But, no changes in the order of the top 15 in

the last month. It's fun to see that villaging is a

global passion, and so many visit here.


Thank You All, For Telling Your Friends !!!
