Years past, winter enveloped the landscape with snow and ice and biting winds.
Bundling of coats and scarves and gloves was in order when venturing out of doors.
A chilly afternoon was abound as I captured images of the season's beauty.
As we approach this holiest of weeks, packages are wrapped and tied with bows.
Halls are adorned in greens and reds and pines are decorated in golds and silvers.
Season's lights twinkle brightly illuminating the darkest of nights.
The day draws near for all to gather together in the warmth of our homes.
Gift giving, glasses clinking, smiles beaming, carols singing surround us.
It is the holidays for one and all.
With Hanukkah past, Christmas and Kwanzaa draw near.
CHRIST IS BORN, REJOICE AND BE GLAD!
