With 12 days until Christmas (for those of you who celebrate this particular holiday), let's see your festive 2019 holiday photos! Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa—whatever your December celebration is, post your pictures here! 🎄☃🎉

I'll start with a few taken right before Thanksgiving as we pull out all the Christmas decorations and start decorating.

A few from the Denver Parade of Lights last weekend. I decided to try my luck with my vintage Minolta Rokkor 58/1.4 for this year's parade. I definitely struggle with manual focus when things are moving (the parade was actually going at a pretty good clip). I have manual focus assist ("red blinkies") turned on, but the parade proved challenging to see the outline.

I ended up with a lot fewer keepers, and some of those still have some blur. But the parade is always fun and the only way to get good at manual focus is to practice manual focus.

It's all the challenge of some stupid video game, but you're actually engaging real world physics, and the trophies are much more meaningful... what's not to like? :D

An enchanted forest Christmas display at an arboretum near here. It was raining heavily, OK for my O12-40 but not OK for my E-M10ii. Hence less pictures taken than might otherwise have been.

Handheld with the 75mm at 1/10th of a second. Tough to focus, tough to not wobble , lol .(even with Ibis!).

Ever since I was a wee lad I've LOVED Christmas trees and their lights / decorations. My wife and kids are somewhat bemused to watch me taking endless photographs in the dark.
