Santa Claus is coming to town!
When I was little
my grandmother gave me a little
Japanese battery-operated lantern
in the shape of a Santa.
On Christmas Eve
I would sit it next to my bed
and turn it on in anticipation
of Santa's arrival that night.
That was a long time ago.
Not sure what happened
to my little Santa lantern,
but was able to replace it ---
I also found two other similar ones....
so now I have a little set of three.
(The one in the foreground has a celluloid head,
and is not glass like the other two.)
It's much older dating back to the 1930's.
Are you ready for Santa?
|Merry Christmas. May all your holiday wishes come true!|
