Santa Claus Parades

Yes. You read that title correctly. This is a post about Santa Claus parades in February. I’ve been saving up rolls of colour film, so I could process them all at once. For the past couple years, we’ve been avoiding the large Peterborough Santa Claus parade and opting for smaller town parades such as Keene,…

Birthday Party

It must really suck having a birthday so close to Christmas… especially as a kid. Not because people we trying to combine presents, but because of peoples busy schedules.
