Indian sand sculptor Sudarsan Pattinaik and 30 of his students created a massive installation depicting 500 Santas or ‘Sand-tas’ on the beach behind Panthanivas hotel in Puri, Odisha, India. Created in December 2012, the piece required nearly 5000 tons of sand and took about 4 days to complete. Intended to raise awareness about global warming, the displaced Santas were sculpted along with one large sand sculpture of Jesus and the message “Go green, save Earth.”

“I always try to give some awareness messages through my sculpture to the world, so I chose the awareness about global warming through Santas as the subject at the year end,” Pattnaik told the India Education Diary.

Bigfoot Ornament - In search of the perfect Christmas Ornament? If there’s one thing Bigfoot knows, it’s how to use pine trees as camouflage. So, we recommend you hide this ornament on your Christmas tree and then have a contest to see who can find him first. He can also stand on his own if you’re not into that whole “hanging” thing, man.

Keep your Christian Bales and your Michael Keatons, our Batman will always be Adam West. Sure, his Batman isn’t as brooding or dark as those guys, but they never did the Batusi. Hallmark has created this ornament of Adam West as Batman [Buy on Amazon] featured on the cover of Life Magazine. We’re not positive, but it seems to have captured him in the middle of a celebratory bat-dance when he saw the ratings for his TV show. 

Holy merch, Batman, this is the perfect bat-ornament for your bat-tree.

Each year during the Christmas season in Budapest, Hungary the city trams are each decorated with over 30,000 bright, twinkling LED lights.

"The tradition began in 2009 and has been a hit with passengers ever since. The lit up trams have become a beacon for photo ops and creative photographers have found interesting ways to capture them."

Long exposure photos taken of the brilliantly decorated trams in motion make it appear as though they’re much more than urban transportation. They look like awesome time machines heading off to who knows where or when. All aboard!

We love this awersome Peanuts-themes Christmas cake made by Nerdache Cakes (previously featured here):

It’s a Charlie Brown Christmas!

For this year’s family Christmas party, I wanted to make something adorable for a change. And what’s cuter than Charlie Brown at Christmas?

My family and I watch the special every year, which is easier now since DVR was invented.

Fact Time: Chuck himself is a mixture of Fondant/Modeling Chocolate and Snoopy’s dog house is chocolate-cocoa cake with vanilla cream frosting. The miserable tree is wire and fondant. All the black accents were painted on. Took about 2 days all together!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from Nerdache Cakes!

We’ve shared a few different Dalek Christmas trees here over the years, but now, thanks to John Smith, we get to watch a Dalek decorate a tree of its own in this short video E-card entitled “A Very Dalek Christmas”.

How does a murderous cyborg trim a Christmas tree? We don’t want to spoil the surprise, but let’s just say it’s going to be quite a toasty holiday for this particular Dalek. This awesome little video couldn’t be more perfectly titled.

Grant Snider of Incidental Comics just answered a burning question that arises every time we hear or sing “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer”. What are all those Reindeer Games that Rudolph isn’t allowed to join in? (Besides Monopoly, of course.)
Now we wish we could play with Santa’s flying reindeer too. Their games are awesome.
