Polar Plunge Warming House
By: Department 56 ®
Here’s a story our designers have wanted to tell for years: Santa and the elves are taking a break for the annual polar plunge. And, because it’s so cccCOLD at the North Pole, they need a warming house with all the amenities they’ll need after the event. The main feature is a roaring outdoor fireplace, emanating enough heat to help plunge participants before they even get inside. A North Pole icon found on all early buildings was a red bin of wood. This one is extra large, holding enough wood to keep the super-sized fireplace going. One side of the building has a refreshment stand with cookies and large pot of hot cocoa. The other side is the sauna door. Check out the details. The back has sculpted ice carving tools hanging on the wall, and a tiny life ring waits out front, in case any of the elves are extra shocked by the frigid waters. Acrylic icicles trim the roof lines, and a thermometer confirms that it’s cold enough for a polar plunge.
