I introduce to you Santa’s unregistered illegal alien slave labourers.

Snomys by IKEA

“Snömys” Christmas tree decoration by IKEA, priced HK$29.90 for 10

That works out at 37¢ US or 23p per Snömy, which is how much illegal manual labourers worldwide get paid each for the full 30-day Christmas festive period.

In Swedish, snö (rhymes with the English word ‘snore’ without the heavier American ‘r’) is ‘snow’ so Snömys is kind of like ‘snowmies.’

There we have it, Santa and his Snowmies.

Snömys is the background image for this month.
