Artist's Description

On Halloween and Christmas, I build villages using my diecast car collection,
peculiar cast of characters, buildings that range from the local petshop to
the Macabre Movie Theatre and many more great and historic buildings like Saint Nicholas Church named after the great Saint that we refer to as Santa Claus. If you want to catch up on the plot of last season’s internet soap opera, you can see the drama that occured in Snowville when Florence, the 50 foot woman from the cult movie of the 50’s The Attack of the 50 foot woman comes to town from where she lives in the North Pole after Mrs. Claus suspects that Santa is literally “monkeying around” with the bathing beauty and other beautiful women that he visits in the night after entering their homes through the chimney. He is worse than the pool boy and takes advantage of women who still believe in Santa Claus and are as desperate for attention as the women in Desperate Housewives. Over the course of the season, many people showed up from the North Pole including Florence’s family, her sisters Peggy Sue, Turleen and her brother Jerwayne from the Pink Flamingo trailer park. Later in the season their mother Gertrude and father Bubba who is of normal size although his wife is 80 feet and their children are gigantic in comparison to the town folk of a quaint conventional village that has never seen such a motley crew. Everyone in Snowville and Chillyville suspect that Santa is an imposter based on his many affairs that Mrs. Claus learns about when she reads her best friend Florence’s letters about his infidelity and lack of values and morality that the an icon like Santa represents. When Mrs Claus comes to town she confronts her husband and all hell breaks loose with this wild family. The market can not keep the small liquor store filled with generic beer, spam and oleo that iis the favorite menu for those living at the trailer park. They are proud of Peggy Sue whose companion is a pig that for three town fairs won the ugliest pig contest and most importantly Peggy Sue is the only family member that graduated from the third grade and is not ashamed to say that her “daddy is the best kisser in the county.” Her sister Turleen is pregnant with her third child and has brought her infant son to Snowville along with her father Bubba who is the disc jockey of the North Pole and resists playing Holiday songs except for his favorites Jingle Smells, Silent But Deadly Night that can be purchased at Their mother and grandmother also visiting the village are witches and control their redneck children with their spells. Jerwayne’s girlfriend Honey set the bar higher for herself and moved out of the trailer park two years ago to follow her dream to be a lounge singer in Las Vegas breaking Jerwayne’s heart since both shared the same dream of having an Elvis Wedding in Las Vegas. Honey has not had the heart to tell him that she is in love with a soldier in Iraq, Carlos who frequents the casinos when he is not on duty. Jerwayne does not want to leave Snowville until he can persuade Honey to come home with him and raise the family they planned since Junior High School when they worked at the drive-in, the Honk and Holler and on weekends at the Bowlarama. I am now posting the coming attractions for the new Christmas season and when their mother Gertrude’s brothers who are ghouls arrive in town to join the party. Nothing much happens at the North Pole during the off season and Manny wants everyone to come home to prepare for Christmas. The uncles are very surprised when they learn who is the real Santa Claus. This was the cliffhanger of last season’s final episode that some may have missed. Please stay tuned to find out that who you believed was Santa was a pretender.
