Most of us are probably done by now with this year’s Christmas decorations and are just simply enjoying the view. Being like-minded AFOLs, it will not come as a surprise if our passion for LEGO’s brightly colored bricks will find its way in our little Christmas corner during this most wonderful time of the year. LEGO understand this very well and throughout the years, has produced a very extensive line of Christmas-themed sets and ornaments that never fail to brighten up any home. One such Christmas-inspired set in particular is the LEGO Creator Santa’s Workshop (10245) from 2014. Coming in at 883 pieces, it is an advanced model that features the home of Mr. & Mrs. Claus as they get ready to deliver their gifts to the entire world. Using brightly colored bricks and elements befitting of the holidays, it is one of the LEGO Creator sets that can easily pass as a lovely Christmas diorama.

This has been floating around for quite some time already, but I suppose such news is definitely noteworthy considering the excitement surrounding most of them. In various, separate occasions during the past days, LEGO has announced several sets slated for release between the months of January and December. I’ve compiled them here for one quick look and some bits of info to put them in perspective.
Perhaps other than being a part of one of the coolest toy manufacturers in the world, are the holiday perks that go along with the job. Not only does LEGO offer a good range of seasonal Christmas sets and vignettes for its loyal fans and customers, but TLG also extends the Yuletide cheers among the lifeblood of its company – the ever reliable LEGO Brand Store employees. Running for more than five years already, the LEGO employee Christmas gift has become a theme of its own, with fans showing considerable interests on these collectibles that are not found in any LEGO Brand or Certified stores.
