CITY Advent 2009: Day 15

CITY Advent: Day 15

7687 - 2009 City Advent - Day 15

The final day of the Chef sub-theme. I was hoping this final door would give us an answer to the question: Is this a holiday theme or not?

Like the mystery of how many licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootise-pop, the world may never know. For today's set is about as theme-neutral as you can get: it's a bench.

Can we take a clue from the white baseplate that this bench is outside? In the winter snow? That's sort of holiday-ish.

And if you combine it with the ice skating rental stand, the garland street light, and yesterday's mystery kiosk...well, it's almost an outdoor holiday mall in miniature.

So, in the spirit of giving...let's go ahead and call it "Festive."

There's still plenty of time for LEGO to send things spiraling into the netherworld - and tomorrow starts a new sub-theme. Will we be making merry? Or weeping bitter tears?

"ice staking"?

This is no doubt a fairly odd thing to find in an Advent calendar.

I can hardly wait until they fit a complete bus set into one of these Advent calendars.

Knowing TLG, it'll probably be missing nonessential bits like walls, extra seats, etcetera but what the hey, it'll vaguely resemble a bus ...

you know I would think there would be a femail after the mailman.

I just made a pun.
