Mr Stills is back!
You know what man, I wanted to have a break in December and since my job (I'm running a shoe shop in big London's shopping centre) is going to be mad before Christmas it'll put quite a strain on my shooting. But 12 days? Should be manageable and since we can use different lenses this seems tempting. And how on earth could I say no to this great bunch of folks that has gathered around these monthly challenges! Count me IN! I'll give it a go and hope I'll manage a shot a day between 14-26 of Dec... Why not

I think I might give it a go as well. With a middle of summer Christmas, blowies, mozzies, etc etc, it will be a bit different to Lisa's white Christmas I reckon.

Being open slather on lens use, convinced me this time.

Don't know about the rest of you fellas out there, but I'm starting to feel like I belong to a funny sort of extended family! Familiar faces around for a BBQ or tea'n'scones or something! Comforting sort of.

Band of brothers...or sisters...politically incorrect!...don't mention the war...I think I got away with it once...shut up Paddy!

Cheers

This sounds like fun so I will join in; if that's okay. Who knows what the weather will bring this year around Christmas. In Kansas it can change three times in one day.

Ooops seems I got the intent of the Twelve Days of Christmas a little mangled in the traditional sense.

As per the Funk & Wagnals of our day - Wikipedia:
QuoteQuote:
The twelve days in the song are the twelve days starting Christmas day, or in some traditions, the day after Christmas (December 26) (Boxing Day or St. Stephen's Day, as being the feast day of St. Stephen Protomartyr) to the day before Epiphany, or the Feast of the Epiphany (January 6, or the Twelfth Day). Twelfth Night is defined by the Oxford English Dictionary as "the evening of the fifth of January, preceding Twelfth Day, the eve of the Epiphany, formerly the last day of the Christmas festivities and observed as a time of merrymaking."
So we have a choice.
We can observe the traditional 12 days of and shoot from the 25 December to January 6. Otherwise, we can document the lead-up to Christmas in our different regions; from 14-26 December. I'm not a stickler either way, but considering folks obligations over the break, I'm happy to hear people's preferences. I'd put it to the vote - though I can't figure how to set-up a voting thingy. So a verbal will have to do:

1. 25 Dec - 6 Jan, or
2. 14 - 26 Dec?

....now this is democracy in action folks

2.

By the time Christmas actually gets here, I'm going to be so sick of hearing of it I doubt I'll be interested in the game.

2!
After the 26th there aren't many Christmas things around here...
And probably JeffJS is right: "by the time Christmas actually gets here, I'm going to be so sick of hearing of it".

Crickey, just been through an election in Victoria, and here we have another vote!

I'll vote for............2, like the others, the period between Chrissie and New Year won't be very Christmassy, and may involve some blurred vision on my part!

Should be bonzer stuff!

Cheers Paddy

My choice would be #2. Just more opportunities to capture Christmas things in my area.

No 2 for me . to many pairs of wobbly boots worn after the 25th.
Maybe we could have an off focus challenge in the new year.
