Cranberry Sauceage Dog

A mushy little mutt, the Cranberry Sauceage Dog spends most of its life hunting for people’s attention.

Standing at half an inch tall, it’s perfected the art of a tuneful bark and a beautifully big bounce resulting in the warm embrace from folk who forgot it existed.

Christmas Caardvark

Possibly the most pointless of Christmas Creatures.

A thin little thing, the Christmas Caardvark is neither hated nor loved. It merely exists because no-one has been bothered to suggest we do away with it all together.

Expect this waste of space to be extinct within a matter of years.

Chocolate Hog

The kind-hearted amongst you would probably look at the Chocolate Hog and feel sorry for it. With a perfectly cylindrical torso, no tail and zero legs, it’s easy to pity this Christmas Creature.

But there’s no need. The Chocolate Hog is thrilled to be alive. A lack of limbs allows it to do the one thing it enjoys the most – rolling down hills. And with the sweetest of sweet-tooths, this cocoa-skinned so-and-so gorges on its flesh until it meets the tastiest of deaths.

Seasons Greetindian Elephant

What more is there to say about the Seasons Greetindian Elephant that hasn’t already been said? There isn’t a superlative left in the English language to give this magnificently welcoming beast.

The second you step foot into its home, this loveable, giving, warm-hearted, selfless, huggable Christmas Creature greets you with a chocolate coin filled trunk, footfuls of mince pies and a tail load of sherry. Never has there been a more merry mammal.

Santa Claustrich

With its large round tummy, long gangly legs and big chunky black boots, this intense thing is quite the slave driver.

The only Christmas Creature known to exist all year round, the Santa Claustrich “hires” vulnerable wildlife on zero-hour contracts to make it all the wonderful material goods their little paws can create.

Nativiteagle

The Nativiteagle can quite simply be described as nothing more than a show stealer. Consumed by all things theatrical, this majestic Christmas Creature travels the country putting on its one-man production of the story of Jesus Christ’s birth.

No matter how cringe or egocentric that may sound, the Nativiteagle has never left a dry eye in the house.

Gingerbred Panda

A spicy specimen. The Gingerbred Panda loves nothing more than a punch-up. Throughout the month of December this Christmas Creature wanders the land looking for the toughest of opponents to scrap with.

But despite its hard attitude, the Gingerbred Panda literally has biscuit bones and will snap at the lightest of shoves.
