A Tale of Christmas Unanticipation…

Good morning, Netizens...

There are many rites of Christmas to which we each, in our own way, pay homage, almost without conscious thought. Round-eyed children gather around Santa Claus at the mall, the camera man leaning forward for a photo child sitting on Santa's lap, the adults all coo, smile and nod at one another, as if to say, "Now, THAT'S what Christmas is all about!" and it becomes a ritual. This is a story which delves into another Rite of Christmas, which hopefully few of us will ever see.
