I'm in! I'm very new to photography but this should be a fun way to force myself to get out and do some shooting

I'm going to give it a try - my first time in a photo contest - so exciting!!
Unfortunately I'm going to be travelling in North America, so I won't be able to deliver the wonderful sights of Christmas in Japan, and with working all day and staying in various hotels where I don't know where I am will definitely be challenging, but I'll give it a shot! I look forward to getting lots of honest and withering criticism!

I want to be in on this too. I have a question. Does it have to be from the 12th only? Can the photos be from before that date. Christmas is celebrated?? in SA long before then. More like from October already, which means that there are a lot of photo opportunities for this thread. And seeing that I may not get the time to visit some of these venues where Christmas is celebrated, from the 12th, it would be nice to post photos from before that opening date. For example, yesterday at the local botanical gardens, it was Christmas Carols in the Park, starting at 18:00 (just before dusk) complete with bands, Santa and fantastic atmosphere. Got a few shots too.

Thanks

Noel
Yeah, welcome to all. The more the merrier.

"T'was the night before Christmas, and all through the house,
not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse...."

maybe not that close yet!

Been quiet here of late, so just to stir things up, some of us have started their albums for the challenge. Those still in for the festive frivolities and yuletide activities should start one too!

Create you own album entitled : 12 Days of Christmas, and your done, and us downunder can marvel at what's going on in the rest of the world at this time of year (and no single lense this time!)

Merry Christmas

Cheers Paddy

Gudday all, me again!

Got itchy feet, so pulled out a Santa thing that surfaces this time of year and snapped it for the album cover...it's legal coz it's the cover and not part of the 12 Days thing, so a bit of fun with the camera...not too flash, but it got the juices going again! Give it a go everyone!

Get in the spirit, or into the spirits, hick! here I go again...what's that Deb??..no I've only had 8 (or was it 9),....oh bugger!

Cheers Again Paddy (hickup!)

The last 12 days of "Single in solitude" nearly drove me mad! So I am quite thrilled to announce that day 1 is up :-)

I thought the first day starts on the 14th of December?
Am I wrong or does Denmark have a different calendar?

btw, I was wondering where you had been, good to see you again.

Help us out here please Rense!

In Italy, they would say "Buon Natale!"

Axl might say "Merry Christmas old chap!"

Our American cousins too numerous to mention may say "Merry Christmas buddy, see that grizzly over there!"

I might say " Merry Christmas mate...where's the bloody beer?"

You know what I mean

But how would the Dutch say "Merry Christmas!"?

Thanks mate...for the rest of the World.

Cheers Paddy
