Chestnuts roasting on an open fire,
Jack Frost nipping on your nose,
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir,
And folks dressed up like Eskimos.

Everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe,
Help to make the season bright.
Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow,
Will find it hard to sleep tonight.

They know that Santa’s on his way;
He’s loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh.
And every mother’s child is going to spy,
To see if reindeer really know how to fly.

And so I’m offering this simple phrase,
To kids from one to ninety-two,
Although its been said many times, many ways,
A very Merry Christmas to you

Merry Christmas everyone ..and a very Happy New Year
..and THANK YOU for all the wonderful work
you give us every day of the year.
For that I’m truly grateful.

FYI: All images are chosen for their image quality…not by Artist names. Artists may receive more than one feature at a time,
if their image meets the theme & judging requirements.

I’m writing this for YOUR sake – so you don’t have to write a lot of the same “thank you’s” if you get more than one feature.

Have a wonderful weekend ☺
Hugs Kira ♥

Kira, I can hardly believe I’m only just now seeing this featured gallery – my only excuse is that we were away at Christmas and I obviously never quite caught up! But thank you for including some of my paintings among these many brilliant artists – I am honored! And a big thank you to you for the beautifully artistic way you’ve placed everyone’s work! The way you’ve arranged them here is so lovely, and I’m sure took a significant amount of time and thoughtfulness. Thanks again! ~ Pat
