After two albums with me as the artist, director and a remixer, Dyne returned to help with the tenth iteration of the AOCC. Sadly, things came up and he ended up being away much of the time, which meant I was basically in charge again. I chose to go back to something with a bit of humor, and with Kirby celebrating a birthday, this idea seemed like the one to go with (I only found out about the birthday thing after I'd already started this). Grabbed a Kirby and Santa sprite, a few Kirby backgrounds, and I dug up an image of Santa's workshop online. With those things gotten, I set about editing everything (especially the building) and giving it all a new light source. With some new stuff added (snow, presents, the "sucking" effect, etc.), this was all set to go.
