Thanks to the inspiration I get from the blogs I have been reading lately I decided to start drawing the things of Christmas and try to capture some of the fun decorations. Although this fellow is relatively new I still get that wave of familiar sentimentality when I stand him on the sideboard each year. There are quite a few others I'd like to capture as well. There is something very special about pulling them out each Christmastime and letting the familiar rituals bring back a feeling of stability and continuity. It's a state of mind.
