    Oh no! Already? I’m not anti-Christmas but …………… :)

  • Bette, I understand your reaction, but RB is not just a photo/art sharing site. Seasonal images seem to have a little better chance at sales if they’re available early.

    Aww, just adorable, Celeste!!! Love how you’ve composed it, too, so we can see the bit of Christmas tree with its lights and ornaments!!! :)))

  • Laurie, thanks very much! Shooting into display windows can be limiting, but I was fortunate to find a good angle for this one.

    I understand that, too Celeste :) I was just allowing my curmudgeonly side to emerge!

  • I tend to be the same way about the whole idea of pushing Christmas on us months in advance, and at least here in the USA it has gotten worse over the years. Now it’s common for stores to put Christmas merchandise and decorations out before Halloween, which seems far too soon to me. :)
