Advent 2023 Day 8

Day 8 and it’s the first day of Hanukkah (Happy Hanukkah to those who observe it) and it’s the first day of our 2nd week in Advent. Our Friends model today baffles me, but hopefully it will become clear with future entries. Marvel gives us a miniature reindeer and a pair of gold trees. And now I think we have enough parts that I’ve decided to start building MOCs (My Own Creations) using the parts we’ve got thus far – the first one is a puppy.

Here’s that mysterious Friends model I mentioned.

And here’s that adorable little reindeer and a very small forest of dead trees made of spider snot silk.

Finally, here’s my original MOC. Check back soon for building instructions if you want to make your own copy.

This year I purchased and am building just two of the available five calendars LEGO has released: Friends and Marvel. If you want to build the others, here are some links to them on Amazon: City, Harry Potter, and Star Wars. (But please don’t support Harry Potter, due to the transphobic politics of J. K. Rowling.)
