The 28th annual Starlight Santa is depicted in a brilliant nights sky wintry scene. His coat is painted with trees and a starry winter’s night sky, over his shoulder is a sack filled with wishes to be granted on Christmas day. Behind this noble Santa is a sled being dragged through the snow with a Christmas tree with gifts under it. With sharp blue eyes, this Starlight Santa epitomizes the hope and dreams of Christmas as he trudges through his own obstacles to deliver a magical Christmas to those who need it most.

The pieces are painted up until Christmas Day before being retired never to be produced again.
