Challenge #6 in the Unpretentious series. Hosted by emccrory.
Challenge has finished
It seems to me that the Christmas and Hanukkah season oftentimes devolves into ostentatious displays of wealth, gifting, over-the-top decorations and selfishness. In my humble opinion, the unpretentious aspects of the holidays--family, friends, coziness--are the best parts.

Voting Please select the entry that best depicts the phrase, "An Unpretentious Holiday." Also, in the spirit of this series, please consider giving a higher vote to the photographs that are shot with less expensive equipment.
