I love this snow globe. I bought it at The Christmas Shop seven years ago (just before it moved to Bredbo) and our Christmas card that year featured 2yo Tassy gazing into it. I love the heavy weight of it. I love the beautiful paintwork and how it feels like "quality". I love the Americana Santa with his flag and how the base winds up to play "America the beautiful". It always cracks me up cos it's SO American and I sing "AMEEEEERICA AMEEEEERICA" at the top of my voice.
