Deck the halls with boughs of holly 

The 22nd annual Christmas House is in holiday splendor this month at ViaPort Florida Mall in Leesburg, where more than 50,000 items—Christmas décor, floral arrangements, toys, quilts, jellies, and baked goods—made by 100-plus crafters are displayed and available for purchase.

“The Christmas House helps build traffic to the mall and helps us in raising funds. We have a great group of more than 100 volunteers who run it, and all of the crafters donate their time,” says Joe Shipes, CEO of the Leesburg Partnership, the event sponsor.

The Christmas House will remain open until Dec. 9.
