It's a terrific photo...I thought it might be Santa from the thumbnail. I can't wait until December 23. Between the Mayan thing and the theory that December 22 sun flares will cause a major catastrophe with all the electrical grids on the planet...my spouse believes both--- I JUST LONG to see the sunrise on Sunday. #10471853
