Another holiday sprite contest?

Do we want to have another spriting contest for the holidays coming up?  Last year at Thanksgiving we did one related to food...do we want to do something else this year?  I'm not sure what we could do differently for Thanksgiving, but what if we did a Christmas theme or something?  I dunno...I hate to give away anything, but my initial, simplistic idea is a skeleton with a Santa hat throwing exploding presents instead of bones.  Not that I could make such a thing just yet, but it's my idea and I might try if there were such a contest!

Thoughts?  Opinions?  Contest?

"Do you want to build a snowman~" ♪♫♪

I'm OK with a holiday contest but I will make the proper contest page at the end of November.
Decide on the theme.

Well I like the idea of something Christmas because I think the ideas that come to mind for that look really cool, but I don't know what to call it or how to narrow it down.  I mean, I'd say something like, "Christmas-ify Castlevania" but that's probably too general.  With that, someone could take a scene and add Christmas decor (tree, lights, snow etc.), another could make a Santa or snowman enemy, and another could add a Santa hat to an enemy -- those things wouldn't compare well in a contest I imagine.  Anyone got ideas how modify the idea, or maybe different ideas like that really could be comparable?

Castlevania-fy a Christmas icon, i.e. Rudolph, the Misers, or even Mr. Hankey. Can be any particular thing provided it looks the part (i.e. can be an enemy, or a statue, or a wall decorum, or a powerup item or special attack).
