Fish for Christmas Eve Anyone?

Hey everyone! I'm happy to share one of my favorite ornaments today. I bought this fishing Santa at Strawbridges well over 15 years ago (anyone remember Strawbridges?). The fish drops down about 4" and Santa's arm actually cranks to reel it back in! Unfortunately he's slowing down a bit and showing some age... but it's still fun to plug him in every once in awhile, he just makes me smile:@)
I broke my fish that looked like the hook was in it's mouth, this one will do for now.

All snuggled into the tree...
Here's hoping it's the little things that make you smile this holiday season too:@)
Have a happy day!
