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.
DAY 2: NICKELODEON CHRISTMAS ORNAMENTS
During the holiday season, you occasionally find yourself venturing into unfamiliar stores. You swore to yourself you’d never go through the doors of these places, but yet, here you are. A desperate moment of panic overtakes you – what are you going to get for your Aunt Sylvia this holiday season??? You have no idea. Absolutely clueless. But for some reason, you think these “new” stores will provide inspiration.
When my cloud of alarm cleared, I found myself in a store I vowed to avoid, Five Below. I am a fan of flea markets and old junk, but not dollar store discoveries. In a daze, I mustered through the aisles of Five Below. So much stuff, so little enthusiasm. But, then those colors caught my eye from afar. I spied with my little green eyes the logo for Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
With a sudden burst of excitement, I was released from my holiday shopping coma. Cue the Christmas joy, I found 4 new TMNT ornaments.
Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo, and Raphael – the gang is all here. It’s been over 20 years since my last batch of Turtles ornaments have been purchased. Decades have come, and decades gone without a new Turtle hanging from my Christmas tree.
But now, the clocks have been reset! We ring in a new era of tree trimming. And whom do I have to thank? The bargain store I refused to set foot in, Five Below. Like Casey Jones said in the first Turtles film, “I’ll never call golf a dull game again.”
Make sure to return tomorrow for Day 3 of 24 Days of Turtle!
