A LEGO Pacific Northwest Christmas

In 2015 The LEGO Group released the “Squarefoot” minifigure. Squarefoot is loosely based on the legendary creature Bigfoot—a manlike beast that is 6–9 feet (1.8-2.7m) tall and covered in brownish hair that resides mainly in the Cascade Mountain range (the mountain range that divides my state). Over a third of sightings of this elusive creature are reported in British Columbia, Washington, Oregon and Northern California. The minifigure was released nearly 40 years after the Bigfoot craze reached its height in the 1970s.

This time of year always makes me nostalgic, which is probably why I chose this figure to star in my holiday story. Are there any mythical legends in your part of the world? What memories from your childhood come up for you during this season of lights? Are your holiday images inspired by your childhood memories?

  1. These are beautiful shots Shelly! It looks like Christmas in the Pacific North West is a beautiful time of year 🙂 (I want to move there!!) 🙂

    I always remember baking cookies with my mom during Christmas season…. As an adult, I don’t bake anymore but I still have happy memories of it 🙂

    I hope you and your family have a Merry Christmas!


    • Lynn Thank you for your kind comment about the images. It can be very pretty in the PNW in the winter. or at least that is what we tell ourselves in-between the rainy days.

      It since to have these happy memories from childhood of cookie baking. I have friends who still do this and I admire them. Where do they find the time and energy!

      I hope you had a lovely and relaxing Christmas!!

  2. Fun figures, and really delightful imagining a Squarefoot Christmas in the forest. Beautiful job, Shelly.

    My family never celebrated Christmas growing up, so I don’t have any memories to share. But Bigfoot was always a fun legend that our family talked about on our Oregon trips, which we took often to visit family.
