Button Battle: Rudolph vs. Frosty

Get in the holiday spirit with a classic cartoon button battle! Choose between Rudolph and Frosty during December’s button battle. Stop by the Teen Area December 7-19 to grab the button that will cast your vote and check out who won last month’s battle between Minecraft creepers and zombies.

What is a button battle? It’s where teens vote on two of their favorite fandoms by taking a button they can pin to a backpack or anything else. The fandom that has the most buttons taken (aka “votes”), they are the one that wins!
