What to Do With Your LEGO North Pole

You can do several things with the LEGO North Pole after building it with your LEGO bricks. You can use it for decorative purposes during the holiday season. Some people like to put these fun pieces on shelves and windows to show people their creative pieces that go along with the holiday season.
