TORRINGTON, CT - 07 DECEMBER 2008 -120708JT15-
Visitors of the Christmas Village watch the opening ceremonies as they eagerly wait in line in Torrington on Sunday. The Christmas Village is a 61-year tradition, featuring Santa Claus, Mrs. Claus, an elves' workshop, Christmas carols, a nativity scene, and animals. The village is free, but long lines are common.
