Click & Snap: Snowflake Plaza 2021

Every year I, like many LEGO® fans, like to celebrate the festivities of Christmas through the magic of LEGO sets. The basis of most displays are the annually released Winter Village sets and as the years have gone on my display has become considerably larger. You can see how it began here and here. What was once a single level village with a few buildings, is now a wonder some multi-level plaza. So Snowflake Village is no more and my Christmas LEGO display is now dubbed Snowflake Plaza.

Spread over five shelves, I’ve lovingly put together various sets to create various scenes. As I mentioned in my recent feature, there are some sets beyond the Winter Village Collection, which can help to expand your festive displays. I’ve added the LEGO Ideas Home Alone set and the two Hogsmeade buildings from the LEGO Harry Potter theme. Pride of place are the last four LEGO Holiday Gifts, including the 10th Anniversary NINJAGO Temple of Celebration.

One thing I’ve always wanted to do but have never gotten around to adding to my LEGO Christmas Display is lights. This year thanks to Lightalling and BricksMax, the magic of illumination has truly given Snowflake Plaza a real Christmassy feel. Although the kit used was meant to just light up the Home Alone house, the addition of just a couple of extra strips of lights has helped to add light to every building.

Finally, the Winter Village Train and Station is once again sitting at the base of the Christmas Tree. It may not be lit up but using the winter version of the Disney Train controls in the Powered UP app does the job. Although we can;t have many people visit to see the display in person this year, I hope you enjoyed a peek at it here and to all the BricksFanz readers, I hope you have a nice and safe Christmas.

  1. I love this, absolutely terrific. Great to see the evolution of snowflake plaza.

    Do you keep the shelving unit up year round and display different themes as the seasons change?

    What shelving unit do you use as it seems ideal. I collet everything Christmas and would love to do something similar.

    PS your website is fantastic, thank you for keeping me abreast of everything Lego.

    • Thank you, it just to be a lot smaller and on a single cabinet but has vastly grown. And no the shelf is only put up for Christmas, the original listing for it now directs to a three-shelf version but I got it from Amazon and they have similar if you go the page and look at similar products. It would be great for other sets through the year as well, but it has a fairly small footprint. And thank you again, glad you enjoy it as that’s why BricksFanz exists, plus it keeps me out of trouble.
