Advent 2016 – Day 1

So this year, I got a LEGO City Advent Calendar to count down the days
until the inevitably disappointing Christmas when I’ll just get socks

A Snowman!  And a Snow Friend… awww.  I should possibly have given the fire helmet to the one with limbs, although naturally I don’t think either of them would really be much use at fighting fires.
