The challenge this week was to photograph what Christmas means to you. If you love shopping and being a kitchen slave..perhaps you should stop reading now.
This is the leaning tree on Main Street in town 14 miles from our home. We check it every time we go to town..it looks like it could go over in a strong wind.
I like Christmas ornaments..I collect them. I scour antique shops for them. It is one of the only holiday activities I enjoy.
I like shopping in antique shops, flea markets and thrift stores. Other places no so much. Not many people appreciate gifts from my favorite shopping places. I hate shopping in other stores with their piped in music and Christmas “stuff” that is out before Halloween. I don’t like to cook or bake either..or wrap gifts or write cheery Christmas cards and letters. Bah Humbug..
I do shop and bake and cook..but only because of peer pressure, it is not something I look forward to or enjoy. Bah Humbug..
Now if I could just sit quietly after a potluck dinner on paper plates while someone read the Christmas Story and I could exchange a small hand made gift with someone..I would be more than happy to say Merry Christmas:)
