One more vote for the first one. You are right it looks very Christmas card-ish.

Quick question: To say that the picture would make a good Christmas card is that a compliment of are you saying that it is a bit cliche.

p.s. In my case I definelely meant it as a compliment.

I don't mean it as negative but I think it is a bit on the cliche side of things. However, if it were use an Xmas card by someone I would feel complimented not insulted. And it will probably be my card for next year :)

What I meant was try shot #1 as B&W and shot #2 in colour (no change to framing/crop). I think the wider vista in shot #1 will give great tone and contrast in B&W and the tightness of the main element in shot #2 might really make the textures and colours pop with all the snow around it. Just a thought, hope that makes more sense.

This showed up in my blog reads this morning :)

really beautiful light, the background doesn't do much for me, but the sleigh really makes this shot special.

thanks Richard. I kept the background for context but liked how the sleigh really stood out.
