It's a little late for Christmas, but it's still the holiday season! I've been wanting to draw what our beloved wall-eyed pegasus got up to on Hearth's Warming Eve, and as luck would have it Derpibooru was holding an art contest with precisely this theme, so this is my entry. To me the most important thing about the Christmas season is being with the ones you love, so this comic was crying out for Derpy being Equestria's bestest mother (even if it is just a fan notion).

Update: This was featured in one of Equestria Daily's regular comics posts.

Update: And the results are in! And - hooray! - my comic took joint second place (tied with Raikoh's entry; Atryl's piece won first place). It was a great contest with a lot of wonderful, charming and heartwarming entries. Thanks again to the operators of Derpibooru, and to the guest judges Sethisto and Sibsy.

Very nice work!  Oooooo, I sure wish they'd done an actual episode like this on the show!  It would've been waaaayyyy better than what they actually did do this season...

Love the little details too, such as the marshmallows in the cups of hot chocolate!

Who doesn't love an adorable Derpy/Dinky thing? :love:

I also came up with a headcanon that Derpy actually has not one, but two kids. sta.sh/09l5j0jeuba

He is from the episode, "Made in Manehattan." My headcanon is that he was adopted by that one mare (don't know her name) and Dinky was adopted by Carrot Top. Derpy knew very well that she was a klutz and she knew she couldn't take care of foals all that well, so she put Dinky and her little brother up for adoption. They do come to visit her every now and then though I presume. Dinky was seen with Derpy in "The One Where Pinkie Pie Knows." derpibooru.org/1005247
