Your Winter Wonderland

12:36 UK time, Wednesday, 3 December 2008

snowy.424.jpgBrrrrrrrrrr. It's very, very cold outside and it's predicted to snow lots and lots tonight, in many parts of the country.

It's an early Christmas present for the owners of Lapland New Forest. The festive-style theme park, which opened at the weekend, promised a "winter wonderland'' with "snow-covered log cabins'', an ice rink, Nativity scene (pictured below) and Christmas market.

What visitors found - after paying £25 to get in - was a muddy wasteland containing a collection of sheds, trees with spray-on snow and a fleet of burger vans (click here for more pictures). There have even been reports of angry parents scuffling with elves, and Father Christmas taking a punch in his grotto.

lapland.226.jpgCould you do better when it comes to creating a little bit of Lapland in the UK? If the heavy snow predicted actually falls, your challenge is to create your very own winter wonderland and send us a picture.

Quite what form it takes is up to you, but we're rather proud of our Magazine effort - Snowy (pictured above).
