For some reason model railroads and Christmas are in close connection. I remember that when I was little, we used to build a small railroad around the Christmas tree. Why don't you do the same?
Building your Christmas railroad is fun and you can let your creative juices flow. It's especially fun for kids and some adult men:)

To get everyone involved you can throw a little competition and see who builds the best railroad. The people that are not participating can be the judges.
Have fun building and have a merry Xmas!
