Happy New Yearwig

An upbeat and optimistic little blighter, the Happy New Yearwig is a bubbly burst of excitement. With its glass half full this Christmas Creature scuttles around daydreaming about all the adventures and challenges it wants to get up to.

Sadly, it has a very short lifespan and dies after 24 hours of a banging headache and dodgy guts.

Decembear

What a tired old bugger. With big bags under its eyes and creaky bones, this gigantic white furry Christmas Creature is born exhausted.

By the end of a rather long month, the Decembear curls up, licks its wounds and shakes at the prospect of doing it all again.

Good King Wenceslassie

You know when you meet someone you know you should like, but for some reason you just don’t? Well, that’s exactly how all Christmas Creatures feel when they meet the Good King Wenceslassie.

Maybe it’s the hound’s beautiful fur. Or its love of helping those less fortunate. Or the fact it never stops bloody singing. Whatever it is, this mutt gets proper slagged off behind its back.

Feliz Navidaddy Long Legs

This red and yellow creepy crawly spends all its time lurking in dark corners, chewing on turkey stuffed with truffles and screaming.

Speaking a language unknown to all other Christmas Creatures, the Feliz Navidaddy Long Legs’ intentions remain a mystery.

Sleighdy Bird

The most patient of Christmas Creatures, the snowflake-spotted Sleighdy Bird waits perfectly still for a downpour of the white stuff in order to really come into its own.

Found only in boiling hot deserts, it’s safe to say it is perennially disappointed.

Mince Piethon

A crusty old codger, the Mince Piethon sheds its skin in the most crumbly of fashions. Combine this with its rather pungent and lingering scent; this is easily the least subtle predator on Earth.

Found in every nook and cranny for a whole month, the Mince Piethon’s death on 31st December is often a welcome sight for many.

Prawn Cocksnail

Ask around, more often than not the mention of a Prawn Cocksnail will be greeted with a cheeky smile and a glint in the eye.

With its pleasingly pink shell, lettuce-green body and tasty tangy trail, it’s a Christmas Creature that always conjures up excitement. But much like a warm-up act at a comedy show the Prawn Cocksnail soon gets forgotten when a cooler, much bigger Christmas Creature enters the room.
