Like everyone else in America and around the world, The Nug Nation staff and our beloved characters took some time off to celebrate the holidays and ring in the new year. While most of us visited family and friends, our nugs went to the North Pole to find Santa. Here’s a photo of Diesel, Bong Burgundy, Affy and some other nugs as they arrived at Gingerbread Village.
Here you can see that the nugs quickly found ways to entertain themselves while they searched for Santa. After the train ride, the nugs had a snowball fight, went for a sleigh ride and generally took over the small town.
After some sightseeing, the nugs were dismayed when Daddy tried one of his ‘falling’ tactics in order to sue Gingerbread Village. He contends it was the slippery street, but both Affy and Diesel are convinced that he was up to his old tricks. Nug Judy declined to comment, saying she didn’t see anything, although you can see by this photo that she was witness to the event. It did little to assist the nugs in convincing local residents of to help them find Santa.
Things quickly got out of hand when they finally found Santa. Apparantly, so many kids no longer believe in Santa that he left Mrs. Claus and joined the Gingerbread Gang. As the gang leader, he immediately challenged our nugs in a throwback to a West Side Story street fight in protest of Daddy’s impending lawsuit. We’re proud to say that our nugs defended their honor by pulling out some nontraditional weapons and established their superior fighting techniques. The Gingerbread Gang was simply outmatched by our heroic nugs as you can see in this image:
Drunk with power, some of nugs took things a bit too far by taking some of the Gingerbread Gang hostage. Officer Blue is reportedly investigating any wrongdoing on the part of the nugs, but has been largely unsuccessful as most of the nugs involved refuse to speak to him, except of course Affy who contends that the gang members had it coming to them.
While we don’t condone this type of behavior, Santa did say that the experience was exhilarating and looks forward to hanging out with the nugs next year.
For now, we hope you’re enjoying a happy nug year. We have lots of exciting things planned this year and hope you’ll enjoy, share and support our efforts to entertain you. You can also buy some of our sweet Nug Nation gear by visiting our shop on either the website or app.
