"his name among a list" [SIGN] 

The countdown to Christmas Day is on. And whether one is a Christian, Muslim, Hindu, Jew, atheist or anything else, it's a day that is recognized across the globe.

As adults, we perhaps groan under the weight that the holiday season puts on our shoulders: from shopping to planning meals to hosting relatives, it can be a series of responsibilities that add stress to at time of year that also has emotional land mines planted among the holidays.

But think back to Christmas (or any major holiday that was important to your family) when you were a child. There was a sense of wonder, of delight, and of anticipation. For the good children that meant excited anticipation; or the naughty children, perhaps it was more nervous anticipation. Whichever side you fell on, you were certainly listless. And if you were naughty, perhaps you hoped that a certain all-seeing, all-documenting someone was "list-less" as well.

And so it is over at Baker Street Elementary, where anticipation looms...

Baker Street Elementary follows the original adventures of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson, as they and their friends work through the issues of elementary school in Victorian London. An archive of all previous episodes can be viewed at www.bakerstreetelementary.org.
