Welcome to the first Blender of the new year!

A holiday gift from the Blender Staff to all the posters here: we've updated the work posting system so you can now go back and edit previous works! No more need for double posts just to correct a typo! Just make sure you're logged in and when you view your own work it will have a link to edit it.

Another good batch of works from December, so as always, read and enjoy!
