I have to agree that this is a nice skin. It's already grown on me.
Of course the old one was probably my favorite of the holiday skins but I think it was time for a change. I like the blue tones more than the red/green anyway and the inclusion of TLG seems fitting - even though I haven't really watched that show, it's nice to see that it's brought some change in the community with new members and skins and smileys.
But yeah, it's great guys. I really love it.
