    It always amazes me how us Americans, when referring to other countries, we refer to their towns as “villages”. I have never seen an American referring to a town in the United States as a village, regardless of how small it might be. When I think of a village I see happy people who are mostly ignorant of the modern world.

      For me the word “village” seems antiquated. So much so that when I think of villages, everyone who lives in one are wearing colorful pointy hats and are either gnomes/elves.

    I live in a village and we do have a mayor,fire dept. and police dept. Looks to me like the definition of a village isn’t true.

    The difference between a village and a town is in simple and very generalist terms in the UK most villages are normally a ‘Parish’ a religious geographic area centred around a church (C of E) from the ‘old’ days while a town is a centre of the lowest tier of Central government control which could cover multiple parishes. SO if you look up Parish in England you will see just how many ‘Villages still exist in the UK
