The perils of unauthorized rooftop access on Christmas Eve.
About this creation
This was built for the X-Mas raffle over at Eurobricks, which was a great reason to finally get in the Christmas building mood... With the Toy Store still having a few more days to wait before it's finally opened and built, we did our first MOC with some inspiration from another recent holiday. And since we couldn't really build anything for Halloween, I guess this was a good way to combine both occasions. Without further ado - happy Halloween... erm, or rather - Merry Christmas guys (actually, both are ~a month away, so either one should be fine)!

Yes, Santa's information was correct - there IS a good boy in this house and that's Jimmy who's visiting his grandma, Ms. Bruja, on Christmas Eve. Being the kind witch (yes, that IS possible) that she is, Miss Bruja has cleaned up the house, got rid of all spiders and spooky things and even prepared a tree for Jimmy to decorate and his very own sock to fill with candies...

Unlike Ms. Bruja though, Santa isn't so quick about changing his ways and obviously just can't seem to let go of his old method of gift delivery - which in this case is not the most appropriate (or subtle!) thing to do. Here he is, making his way down the chimney - just before his splashes in Ms. Bruja's Xmas Soup. Secret ingredient anyone?

Good thing Santa has not forgotten to bring some support along... "Ah, not again. Wonder what he'd do without me here... "Santa's little helpers" - yeah right, easy for you to say when we do all the hard work!"





Ms. Bruja is having a little trouble hearing and seeing stuff - YOU try working with magic for 80 years! Obviously though, Jimmy hasn't failed to notice the unexpected visitor... and has every right to panic. Contrary to what you might expect, Ms. Bruja isn't planning on cooking good ol' Santa, so once she finds out, she runs off to the roof to get her broom and help Santa out of the pot.

Don't worry guys, Santa will be safe... Ms. Bruja's magic globe (featuring recipes by world renowned witch chefs) says "Cook at minor flame, major time", so if anything he'll just get his feet a bit warmed up. That's probably a lesson he needs to learn though.




Oh well, at least this way he'll be able to take a well-deserved break (while letting his boots and pants dry out a bit). Make sure you stock up on cookies and milk in case this happens to you!

Good work you two! Nice build and good story to go with it. I really like the texturing around the fireplace - great use of log bricks and tiles to give a brick effect. The tree is a bit square but overall this is a nice MOC!

Thanks Colin! The tree is TOO square, I know, it's just that this was put together in an hour or so and I couldn't find the green plates :/ We'll probably do another Christmas MOC later on which would definitely be more elaborate, don't worry! You know, there's gotta be some solid preparation for our Grim project :wink wink: :D

Yeah, Elves TOTALLY get shafted! They work their little fingers to the bone all year long and the glorified delivery boy gets all the credit... what the heck!??! HAHAHA Great build too! ~ Chris.
