The weeks challenge isn’t so much one of a photo challenge, as it is a challenge to get many, many, many things done before Christmas and the end of the calendar year. If it was all fun and holiday spirit: GREAT! If it was all getting financial crap done, tax stuff done, insurance, etc: Fine. But combine the 2, and WOW! SURPRISE! Not a moment for peace. Or a shower.
My Surprise photo represents the mystery and fun of the of the Holiday spirit. Personally, I leave some Holiday lights up in my house all year round. I have been known to take my tree down after Easter. I love driving around and seeing all the houses decorated. My all time favorite is a local guy who has a rather big display, but the feature is a merry-go-round ice rink contraption depicting Snoopy being chased my a shark! BIG SURPRISE!!! It is handmade and so super fun! He moved a few years ago, but a friend of mine saw to where, and he still does it! It is somewhat of a tradition to go see Snoopy being chased by the Shark. I think he has been putting it up for over 20 years…..yes! Here is the full story (second one down).
