Here's an updated version. Fixed a number of things, hope you like this version.
This anim was a test of the new V2 advanced animation features (review comments sep topic later on), play with the snow feature (impressive), must try rain and also to test and render scene using the all new lighting of V2. The lighting and in part this specific scene plus this PC is a little under-powered, meant very (very) slow going, OK in Build Mode so long as did not turn on F8 for light shadows, but render tests for still images and video taxing this PC. Santa did not bring a new super powered PC in his present bag this year
Footpath lights are still flickering but otherwise happier with this version now the Santa anim could do with some tweaks also but ... Tweaked all lights, fixed overbright settings, changed the sky lighting and clouds and time to produce a different ambient colour which was the cause of the blue-ish/purple snow in v1. Snow could be tweaked for the keyframes, will be extra good if the snow can be enhanced to not be inside. Render time 7.5 hours on 2 Star 720p.
