Tis' the season for updating PlayStation Home with a seasonal holiday space, apparently.

Sony Europe has revealed that a "Winter Wonderland" Home space is set to hit Sony's virtual world service thingy on December 10. The area will feature snow, elves, present, as well as Santa's grotto. The "Winter Wonderland" comes complete with mini-games, like the above "wood chopping" game that has you interacting with an elf you may have seen in your worst nightmare. 

Of course, my experience with Home games has been not being able to actually play them, since they're usually all occupied. Instead, I stand around and emote for awhile before logging out and actually playing a videogame. But there are prizes involved for those that participate -- Sony promises "great rewards for your hard work."
