Good morning, Netizens...

Parade-goers look on in excitement as the Boise Holiday Parade passes down South Capitol Boulevard in downtown Boise. (Idaho Press-Tribune, Charlie Litchfield)(November 29, 2008)

This could be anywhere there is a parade and kids, for holiday parades, especially just before Christmas, bring out the excitement in kid's faces. Originally I was going to use one of the pictures from Europe, more to show the solemnity of the Christmas Tree lighting, but the excitement in the kid's faces won over solemnity. There will be lots of time later on for solemnity, and august observations as the Christmas Season draws nearer.

Of course, we may see other situations arise, such as in Mumbai for terrorism does not respect anything but their own credos as we have seen in the 60 hours of mayhem that took place.
