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.
Submit you best shots of an unpretentious holiday.
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.
