++++ -------- C174 Celebration --------- ++++

I though Sunshine , Birds , Wild animals , but lets play fair So the theme is CELEBRATION

This definition on celebration is very broad it could mean Party, a social gathering or celebration .Festival, a community gathering to celebrate something in particular. The observance of a feast day , holiday or cultural event. It could even be a meal or an outing. I was listing to the radio yesterday and a deejay asked a listener what food they were preparing for Christmas I.E. Chicken , Turkey , Gammon etc. The reply was “ No %&%@! chicken we eat it every day so its lamb as its Christmas “ . I laughed so much I had to slow down a bit. But I did think about family , celebration and people. We are marking a short period on time with something to feel positive about if even for a short time. I even gave one of the ‘ Santa ‘ dudes wilting in 30C at the traffic light in a red suit a few dollars and told him to keep the plastic blow up mallet. The human sprit needs victories and celebration is one of those. It’s very broad as we even have celebration’s when we are totally alone. It also a time to show you and yours and any thing that lifts the sprit. ( Bottles also welcome)

The competition runs from now until 2100 GMT on 2 January 2012. At that time the galleries will be closed and the voting will commence with a new thread. The winner in the competition gallery will host the next challenge.

Newcomers are totally welcome and encouraged to join the fun - Just post here if you need assistance to get images into the gallery or if you are not certain what's going on. We all started off clueless and make the same mistakes.

To post a photo in any of the galleries; just select the gallery of choice from below: Competition or Exhibition or Originals. On the top of the page you will see "edit this gallery", click on that and it will ask for a password. Enter "kickass" (don't ask, just keep it lower case) and you should be able to make it from there. If you still need assistance, ask and you shall be answered. Sometimes the answer is even the right one!

Add your name after the title, and make the image 800 pixels or less on the long edge, no larger than 200kB. Pbase lets us run these challenges free on their website, so please respect this by keeping your file size reasonable. Ensure the EXIF data is intact for the competition, with the date it was taken.
