2016 LEGO Advent Calendars: Day 1

It’s that time of year again! Time to break out the heavy winter coats (if you’re in the northern hemisphere), fire up the ovens for many, many delicious baked things, and prepare for the holidays. To help you celebrate, The Brothers Brick is giving you a digital Advent Calendar, where we’ll reveal each day’s mini-build for each the LEGO Friends, LEGO Star Wars, and LEGO City 2016 calendars along with commentary from our team of Contributors and Editors. To help you remain unspoiled, if you wish, the pictures and commentary on the day’s models will be behind a jump.

While you wait patiently for each day’s post, check out our Create a Calendar contest, going on now!

Let’s get started!
