Here is my entry for this week’s challenge hosted by Frank at Dutch goes the Photo
The theme this week is: Anticipation
It’s that time of year…
The December page appears on the calendar.
And with it, the sprint to Christmas.
For those of us (in the USA) who celebrate the holiday, the “anticipation” is triggered around Halloween. Much to my dismay. I really have not adjusted to the sight of artificial Christmas trees amongst the Halloween costumes.

Children are not cynical about this. They anticipate like crazy. Without judgement. Without reservation. And with great joy and excitement.
When is Santa coming? is repeated enthusiastically and often.
My own children were no exception.
Especially my son. As a 2 year old, he did not yet understand the concept of…Do Not Touch…Wait…Those Lights are Hot…We Will Open The Presents Later.

His enthusiasm was limitless.
