Hum or sing along to “Here Comes Santa Claus” while flecks of snow fall around this Santa and one of his many reindeer inside the snow globe. Holly leaves are painted on the outside of the glass for enhanced decorative appeal, and a red ribbon with bells completes the holiday look among other home accents.

The light green background complements and highlights the quaint design by artist Becca Barton, surely to bring a smile to any holiday visitor’s face.

You may recognize the style of the next Santa Sculpture from folk artist Jim Shore. Traditional red and green are accented by blush pink details; whimsical additions to this cheerful Santa’s wardrobe. The Evergreen topiary with a cluster of berries complements your own holiday greenery, and completes the festive look of this figurine.

Add more cheer during the holidays with Santa as he sits in the Polar Pacific Musical Train, accompanied by a nutcracker and a decorated Christmas tree. The exceptional details encourage the nostalgic feelings of the season, as do the ten favorite holiday songs played by the train. This home accent also has an adaptor for plugging in your own music to play during dinner or a party.
