A Photo a Week Challenge: December Holidays

dec_holidays_nmp

December is the month of celebrations and holidays. Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or Festivus, December is a time for getting together with family and friends. It seems like there are parties and concerts several times a week. My husband and I sing in a chorale that had it’s final Christmas concert last night. My piano students performed their annual Christmas Recital on Monday. We have parties with both sides of the family, and Christmas Eve breakfast with the kids and grand-baby. One of the big traditions in Salt Lake City is seeing the lights at Temple Square. Each year, there is something a little different to see. A few years ago, they added these floating lights to the reflecting pond in front of the temple with a beautiful, cream nativity. So, what traditions and celebrations do you have during this time of year?

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE ONE OR TWO OR MORE PHOTOS FEATURING YOUR DECEMBER HOLIDAY TRADITIONS.

Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Each week, I’ll come up with a theme and post a photo that I think fits. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Thursday, when the next photo theme will be announced.
  2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “A Photo a Week Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ tag.
  3. Come back here and post a link to your image in the comments for this challenge.
  4. Follow nancy merrill photography so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements.
