Holiday Cheer

Challenge #19 in the Creative Genius II series. Hosted by REHS.
Challenge has finished
Holiday scenes (landscapes), Product (gifts, food and drinks) displays, People (celebrating) & Events (holiday rituals). There are many ways to show Holiday cheer. Your quest is to creatively capture an image which makes the viewer smile and feel the winter holiday celebration. So use composition, color and light to show "Holiday Cheer". I know the Winter Holidays are different all over the world, but please share with us how your culture enjoys the Winter Holiday celebration. Voters, please keep an open mind, remember, that in the southern hemisphere it's summer time now. So everything from a snow covered house, to a Santa in beach shorts, works. Shots of food or kids opening presents are wonderful. Ranking should be based on the creative way that Holiday Cheer is expressed. This will be very subjective, so low scores should be reserved for "doom and Gloom" entries. Summary - share what you enjoy most during the Winter Holidays in such a way, that it says "Happy Holidays"!
