This week’s blog is being published on Christmas day, so I thought it would be a nice time to share some of my favorite holiday images.
What represents a “holiday image”:
Certainly festive lighting is a popular subject. My favorite has always been the scene around Central Square in Keene New Hampshire. The gazebo, the majestic white church and the illuminated Christmas tree makes for classic images. Over the years, the trees have varied in size and the snow has not always been cooperative, but it is always the first place that I look for my holiday lighting.

I have written several articles about shooting holiday lights:

|Great December Ice Storm Outage 2008|
|Christmas Walk, Spofford NH, 2017|
The Warmth of Home and Hearth
Regardless of the weather household decoration stay pretty much the same. These can include the lights on the Christmas tree, but, like many people, we add our own traditional pieces, including home-made decorations on the tree. We have an ornament pieced together from the “No Mall” pins that we wore years ago, and for real history, we have Abigail’s old retainer, that we plan to pass on for her trees for decades to come. Of course, we have bright stockings to hang over the fireplace and everything from a Santa wine bottle holder and, for no obvious reason, a dancing chicken.
