A Surprise in the Mail is Fun

As much as I love Christmas, one thing I don’t do is send out Christmas cards.  Yes, I still feel guilty about it, too, since I love getting them so much.  But that tradition is the subject of the tenth Winter Fun with Snoopy ornament.

This ornament finds Snoopy checking his mail.  It’s a good day, too, because he’s found a letter with his name on it inside his red mailbox.  It’s extra special because his mail is being personally delivered by a friend – Woodstock, of course.  He’s holding the letter and sticking his head out from inside.  There’s snow on top of the mailbox and on the ground that Snoopy is standing on.  Snoopy is wearing a green and blue scarf and hat.

And the entire scene is cute enough to make me smile.  This one seems a little bigger than some of the others in the series, probably because Snoopy isn’t the only large thing in the ornament.  He’s slightly smaller than the mailbox, in fact.  Still, this is definitely a smaller size than the normal ornaments from Hallmark and only marginally larger than the others in the series.

The scene provides a nice flat base, so you could set it out to enjoy on any level surface if you wanted.  You’ll also find the 10 in a Christmas tree series marker on the bottom.

The loop for hanging the ornament is on the top of the mailbox.  It slightly tips toward Snoopy, but not enough to be an issue.

Honestly, anytime of the year, it is fun to get mail from a friend, and the tenth Winter Fun with Snoopy is the perfect reminder of that.

Have more fun with the rest of the Winter Fun with Snoopy series.

Original Price: $6.50
