This is not exactly my type of puzzle, I’m not usually a fan of traditional Christmas puzzles, and I would never have chosen this myself, but I got it in a lot with a bunch of other puzzles. I didn’t like it much at first, but I got more into it towards the end, but if it hadn’t been a Ravensburger, I’m not sure I would have finished it.
On the box, it says “20th Anniversary Limited Edition”, but I’m not sure what that’s referring to. Not the image, because that’s copyright 2016. Then I started to imagine a series of puzzles, all called Santa’s Christmas Party, where you start out with traditional, glossy Christmas images, but over the years it grows progressively darker, ending up with elves taking meth to keep up with toy production and a drunk Santa vomiting in the punch 🙂 Yeah, I know, I’m never going to be put in charge of a series of Christmas puzzles. Because I think Hugleikur Dagsson‘s series Santa Exposed would make great puzzles (Warning! NSFW, naughty, and often gross! You have been warned!)
Anyway, since there seems to be only one puzzle called Santa’s Christmas Party, but a great many beginning with the word Santa, this probably refers to the Santa-series. They could be clearer about what anniversary this is. Also, how come Santa has time to party on Christmas?
Nice little detail: there’s a Ravensburger puzzle among the presents.

This post made me laugh out loud! Thank you very much for a much needed laugh – elves on meth and a drunk vomiting Santa. LOL
It’s the 20th anniversary of their limited edition Christmas puzzle series.If you’re not a fan of traditional Christmas images (like me) then this series probably isn’t on your radar. Great post! I hope you enjoy your holiday, and best wishes to you and yours. Merry Christmas!
Thank you! I hope you and your family also enjoy the holiday, even though it’s bound to be sad as well this year.
I won’t be keeping up with limited edition Christmas puzzle series, but good to know what that was about!
“elves taking meth to keep up with toy production” Well, that explains how they manage it! 😊
