Christmas images

I've taken a liberty this month and put four photos up.
They show some, but not all, aspects of Christmas as my family know it.

The reason for the season

Missy exploring the Christmas tree

Mini gingerbread  house 

Santa in the city

Joining in the Christmas Challenge over at:

All of the photos were taken on a Canon PowerShot set on auto.
The two bottom photos have been cropped and the top one localised.
As far as I know the kitten is original, but my husband plays sometimes, so maybe not.


  1. A great variety of pictures, but all capture the theme. I love the kitty exploring the tree. How cute!

  2. The Santa is great I would like to try your house..

  3. That's the biggest Santa I've ever seen I think! the little tots must love him! All your pics certainly share the special things Christmas means to many of us - such a wonderful time of year.

    Have the happiest of holidays - blessings in abundance for the coming year too.
    Hugs - Mary

  4. Very nice focus on the reason for the season, and your kitty in the tree is adorable.
    Merry Christmas.

  5. Perfect selection of Christmas Scenes. Every Christmas tree needs a cat!

  6. I've never heard of a Localised photo, but I do like the effect. Your Christmas scenes are great - that's one giant Santa!

  7. There really are so many aspects of Christmas. Thanks for sharing a few that your family value.

  8. Dearset Diana; Oh, Missy makes me wish to have one for me, SO lovely♡♡♡ Yes, that Santa is the biggest one I've seen and must be really attractive♪ Wonderful seasonal pictures, my friend.
    Wishing you Happy Holiday season☆☆☆

    Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend in New Zealand, xoxo Miyako*
