North Pole has great snowplows

Finding the perfect Christmas tree is an important part of the holiday season, at least in some parts of the world. And the North Pole is no exception. In this scene by Andrea Lattanzio, when Santa sets out to find the perfect tree, he comes prepared. Not only does he have a nice sharp ax, and a reliable pair of snowshoes, he brought his faithful companion in case of trouble. Santa lucked out this year and didn’t have to wander far off the road. And speaking of roads, The North Pole has a superior infrastructure, with well-maintained roads, and industrial strength snowplows. These trees are very nicely shaped, and the softly curved slopes make great snow drifts.

I saw Santa playing classic games

While the elves are busy making toys for girls and boys around the world, how does Santa spend his evening? For Taiwanese builder Joffre, the jolly old elf likes to hang up his hat and unwind with some retro gaming. Santa’s physical features are exaggerated so that he looks super stout and rotund. Joffre’s caricature is amusing and reminds me of the Santa from Tim Burton’s Nightmare Before Christmas. And is that a Nintendo Famicom he’s playing? It certainly looks the part!

Christmas Gift For Santa

Come to the Dark Side....we have snowball fights.

Here’s something you won’t find in this year’s LEGO Star Wars advent calendar. Nathaniel Stoner recently created a whimsical Christmas ornament of a snowman in carbonite. He took things one step further when he incorporated it in this scene inspired by a Calvin and Hobbes-meets-Star Wars comic strip by Brian Kesinger. “Lil Kylo” makes light of an event his father Han would rather forget, and the results are hilarious.
