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 23: CLASSIC ORNAMENTS
Holiday decorations are subjected to a sad life. Despite a month or so of pure bliss, they spend most of the year confined to a box in the basement. They're prisoners with only a limited chance to strut their stuff.
However, their time stuffed in storage builds anticipation. Excavating your decorations every year becomes a comforting tradition. You rediscover the treasures that remained dormant for months and months.
These festive fixtures are my earliest memory of that tradition. Each year, my Mom & Dad would dig out the boxes, while I eagerly awaited the return of a cowabunga Christmas. My childhood bedroom was a showcase for the TMNT phenomenon. The massive collection was proudly on display year-round. However, these ornaments were a limited engagement.
As December approaches, I still instinctively know it’s the season for Turtle tree-trimming. The ornaments get their annual chance to boast their mutant magic – and it fills me with holiday cheer.
