24 Days of Turtle: Day 23 (Classic Ornaments)

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.


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.

 Make sure to return tomorrow for the FINAL DAY of 24 Days of Turtle!

  1. It is the sad life of a nice Christmas ornament, but once December starts rolling around just te next year, then everything turns out to be alright.

    The Michelangelo ornament with the snowman is just plain awesome. I adore the others, but Mikey always gets the god stuff during this holiday time. But, he is the party dude, anyways.

    I still can't believe tomorrow's the final day. I'm going to dread it, but everything good must come to an end, no?


Forgiveness is divine, but never pay full price for late pizza.
