To those of you who celebrate Christmas, Merry Christmas, and to those who are just enjoying the days off from work and school, Happy Holidays! No matter which way LEGO fans spend the final days of the year, they like to sneak in some creative LEGO fun; be that building an awesome new LEGO set, setting up a LEGO Christmas Village, or running a LEGO train around the Christmas tree. 🙂
Or how about building something totally funny and crazy? Like this LEGO Santa’s B-Team by Joel Baker, pictured above. Joel takes advantage of some of the new printed round tiles that can be found in the LEGO Mixels and LEGO Legends of Chima sets. So creative! Or what about this sweet LEGO stop-motion video celebrating the holiday by DMI Productions to the tune of Andy Williams’ “It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year”.
It is interesting to note how different countries and cultures celebrate Christmas. In countries in the Northern hemisphere it is usually associated with cold weather and snow, while in the Southern hemisphere people are right in the middle of summer. Also, there are many local traditions that get intertwined with this holiday, incorporating special foods, decorations and customs. For example I was reading that in Australia they depict kangaroos pulling Santa’s sleigh instead of reindeer. Makes sense for Santa to outsource transportation to the locals. 🙄
But no matter which way you spend the last few days of this year, I hope you have fun and Santa brings you lots of LEGO to play with! Since we have readers here from all over the world, if you like, you can share your own Christmas traditions. Also, if you incorporate LEGO in the holidays let us know what you do! Do you build decorations out of LEGO? Give or receive LEGO sets as gifts? Are you planning to build a super special big LEGO set during the holidays? Or are you just relaxing, getting ready for the big hunt of year-end LEGO deals that begins tomorrow? Feel free to share and discuss in the comment section below! 😉
