Aloha Bricksetters... Happy Saturday/Christmas Day to Everyone in the Forum!
Because it is Christmas Day I have again returned to preside over another BonusBall. I was surprised (but not really surprised) that the fantastic @lowlead
has made available not one... but TWO (2) of the very exclusive #40483
Luke Skywalker's Lightsaber.
Because these are such sought-after prizes, we're going to run two (2) raffles: one today that'll run until December 31st; and we'll run a second super-awesome bonus raffle from January 1, 2022 through January 6, 2022.
The drawing will not be run to coincide with the BonusBall, so the title is actually accurate only in spirit. We want as many unique posts in thread as possible, so please avoid double posts - but EVERY unique post will be counted. My lovely wife, who has no idea what any of this is - she'll draw the number from a random number generator.
If the prize isn't your thing, I do have a wide variety of extra sets, polys, figures and Lego-related whatnot in my inventory - and I'm happy to substitute the lightsaber for something of reasonable comparable value. (And no, I'm not shipping a UCS Millennium Falcon to Ulaanbaatar or Dushanbe.)
Finally, I strongly urge everyone that enters to make a donation to FairyBricks. If you happen to win the raffle, making a sizeable donation for FairyBricks would be even better. If you don't the raffle, but still make a sizeable donation, that that makes you a Danish Prince. (No it doesn't, but please consider making a donation nonetheless.

Back to the normal nonsense with the drawing... the question for your consideration:
My family just watched the 1984 version of '/A Christmas Carol'. Aside from some cringeworthy practical effects, why do people think 'Die Hard' is a Christmas movie? @SumoLego
's answer: Ya'll crazy. It's a heist movie that takes place at Christmas. And to quote one Bruce Willis:
is not a Christmas movie... it’s a goddamn Bruce Willis movie!”
Enjoy! And Good Luck!
