LEGO Advent Calendar - Day 1

I got my LEGO Advent Calendar last minute this year. Just a couple of days ago. And because the store I went to get it at was actually sold out, I ended up buying one that has a severely beat-up box. Luckily, the contents seem intact, even if the box is so badly damaged as to prevent the display.

And LEGO outdid themselves this year with the display. Most years the flap opens out to the side. This year it folds down and makes a base for your LEGO Winterland scene. Very cool!

The first day is, as usual, a LEGO minifig. This one is a guy wearing a snowboarding helmet with a bunch of "snowballs" for him to throw at unsuspecting passers-by.
