Weekend Caption Contest™ Winners

This weeks Weekend Caption Contest™ had everyone in the holiday captioning spirit. Your host and judge was busy finishing off The Weblog Awards, so the judging of the event got delayed a day. Consider it fermentation time for your captions... they just get better with ages. Anyway, the assignment this week was to caption the following picture:
