Holiday display admired by community

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - A Christmas village inside the Mathews' Wilmington Island home continues to wow its audience.

Diana Mathews has been piecing this together for the better part of three decades.  It's a labor of love, admired by friends and neighbors who've watched it grow over the years.

Her husband said she loves putting the display together for family members and friends.

"The first thing they say is usually just 'wow, wow wow!' You know, they just can't believe all the stuff put together like this. She's just real artistic that way," said Tony Mathews.

It takes about three days to put it together each year. Then there's a couple of weeks of tweaking.
