This holiday season, Santa is coming to the sewers! 24 Days of Turtle is a countdown until Christmas guaranteed to make you merry. From December 1st through 24th, this advent calendar will shell out 24 different TMNT Holiday-themed treats. Each day will offer something new, something ninja.
But then, a Ghost of Christmas Past rears its ugly head. You’re presented with a piece of your history. A forgotten memory that knocks you on your shell.
This Michelangelo ornament haunts me. A Ghost of Christmas Past that reminds me of my childhood curiosity. There’s nothing wrong with a kid being inquisitive. Curiosity didn’t kill the cat here – it just ruined the Turtle.
Michelangelo’s Santa-equipped Jack In The Box was far too tempting. As a kid, I didn’t understand the point of that small spring. It sent the Santa head bobbing back and forth as it hung from our Christmas tree – enticing me, taunting me. My ninja-like patience failed. I maniacally plucked at the spring, stretching it to the limit. Now, I am left with this – a limp, lifeless Santa head.
My decision-making has no rhyme or reason. How have I saved so much of my TMNT collection, yet treated this one ornament with such abuse? The rest of this set is tiptop. Heck, the Raphael ornament isn’t even opened!
Oh, well. Kids will be kids. Even if that kid was me.
Make sure to return tomorrow for Day 13 of 24 Days of Turtle!
