For some reason this year the Hollywood studios decided to keep a lot of their movies for a Christmas release, meaning there were loads of fantastic film billboards around L.A. this month, with far fewer TV and video game ads.
Even though it opened in November, Arthur Christmas still continued to draw cinema goers with its festive tale.
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo remake was slightly less festive (although it did snow a lot in the film), and even though it was harrowing at times to watch, it probably had the most intriguing billboard around town before its release.
For the fourth installment in the film franchise, Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol was action-packed from start to finish and real seat of your pants viewing. Such a great holiday movie. If you're a fan, be sure to check out these original costumes worn by Tom Cruise, Paula Patton and Jeremy Renner from Ghost Protocol on display.
For the family this season, there was We Bought a Zoo, which had a great ad campaign with gift-wrapped animals - a zebra, lion and tiger.
Plus the third Alvin and the Chipmunks movie, Chipwrecked, with this fun and colourful lifesaver ring creative.
For a bit of a tear-jerker, there was Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close, a post-9/11 tale which had this arresting billboard.
Steven Spielberg also had two big movies opening this christmas, the motion-capture movie The Adventures of Tintin, based on Hergé's popular comic book character. Be sure to check out all the different Tintin movie billboards, especially the cool seaplane billboard.
Plus to be greedy, the infamous Director also brought us the World War I drama about a boy and his horse, War Horse. This giant billboard for the film graced L.A.'s Sunset Strip this month, whilst these actual costumes featured in War Horse were also on display at ArcLight Sherman Oaks cinema.
If you fancied a darker slice of sci-fi for the holidays, this billboard for The Darkest Hour was a refreshing change from all the festive frivolities.
This month also saw another sequel, this one for Sherlock Holmes. If you're a fan of the infamous British detective, be sure to check out all the different Sherlock Holmes 2 movie billboards and also these original costumes worn by Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law in A Game of Shadows.
This month also saw New Year's Eve arrive before Christmas in an ensemble film which didn't really wow the box office.
Plus we got a sneak peak at the forthcoming Snow White and the Huntsman movie billboard.
At the end of December new billboards started popping up for movies released in January, like Mark Wahlberg's Contraband.
And this giant billboard along Beverly Boulevard for new action-thriller Haywire.
The Hangover Part II chose to capitalise on it being the gift-giving season, with these eye-catching special extension billboards for the Blu-ray release.
The version with the monkey is such fun and really stands out.
And as we go into awards season, more studios chose to plug their Oscar hopefuls, like DreamWorks The Help. If you loved the movie as much as I did, check out these costumes worn by Emma Stone and Jessica Chastain in The Help.
Whilst Warner Bros. Studios added this Hagrid creative to their Harry Potter Oscar consideration ad campaign.
Plus Disney Pixar invited consideration for Cars 2, which is probably one of their weakest entries in recent years which have previously boasted such masterpieces as Toy Story 3, Wall-E and Up.
For television, The Hub got all festive with this wintery train ride for its kids cartoon shows.
This month also saw the billboard for ABC Family's Switched at Birth return to the skies of L.A.
I really loved The Soup's witty campaign to publicise the show's move to Wednesday nights.
Adult Swim continued to bring us wacky and surreal billboards in December, with this cool 'personal ad' themed ad for the channel.
And it looks like Dustin Hoffman is continuing the trend of big movies stars appearing in TV series, with the new show 'Luck'.
And finally for television, this MTV billboard for a show with a fun name, I Just Want My Pants Back, debuted at the end of the month, appropriately along the Sunset Strip.
Video game billboards
Then just in time for Christmas, this spectacular super-sized billboard appeared for the Batman Arkham City video game, which is a real visual delight.
As you can see it's been a busy month for entertainment around Los Angeles. Be sure to check out my Daily Billboard blog every day and come back again next month (and year) for another fantastic billboard round-up.
Keep your eyes to the skies...
