Christmas x The Build Up (in the Past) November 22 2014

Christmas, that time of the year.

As a young and impressionable little one, I remembered slogging through a full 10 months, only to realise that December is just around the calendar corner.
Suddenly it was right there, within grasp and ripe for the picking.
Everything seemed brighter, happier and more colourful. The sky was blue-er and the grass green-er.

A week flew past. Then another. And another. And soon, eleven was on the brink of giving way to twelve.
The excitement could hardly be contained any longer.

I hope mum's making the delicious pie like the one last year!
Do we get to decorate the tree again? I want to be the one to put on the star!
I have been good this year! Santa will give me presents, lots of presents!

Oh, the anxiety. :)


Until the secret was finally revealed... Santa doesn't exist!
