Encompassing interest?

Unseasonal theme aside, who associates Christmas with tortoises?

Apparently I did when I was 9 years old.

This image is a reminder that childhood is a unique time for special interests, preoccupations and obsessions. Mine was tortoises. However the quality of my preoccupation was more of a beloved pet than making me a custodian of all tortoise related knowledge.
