Point and Shoot competition #141 - Hollidays

What better theme than this one for this time of the year

I think the US is kind of the champion during this period but for me, any Holliday that's celebrated in your country/culture at whatever time of the year is definitely a valid entry.
Try to capture the spirit of the Holliday you're sharing, showing what it means to you.

Looking forward to your entries!


Rules:

1. Always have fun!

2. Cameras:

No cameras with sensors larger than 1"
No large format or camera typically requiring a tripod to use.
No interchangeable lens cameras (some exceptions below).
No (D)SLRs or any camera weighing over 1kg.

Cameras permitted:
Mobile phones, tablets, small sensor toy cameras.
Pentax Q, Nikon 1, any 110 film.



ANY CAMERA BRAND ALLOWED.

3. Entries will close December 31st, 2019 midnight CDT.

4. Maximum image dimensions are 1024x768 (ish) pixels.

5. List camera brand and model with entry for all to see, and exposure data would be nice.

6. No restrictions on when the entries were taken.

7. Contest winner determines the rules, selects theme, sets closing date and judges the next competition.

8. Enter up to three images, however you may change your entries as many times as you like up to the contest closing date/time.

Have fun!


As a kick-off, some from me.

Hollidays gone wild

Someone must have spent a great deal of time on setting up all of this.

Hi,

My best wishes to all and to yours!

Since it's now 2020 - even here - this contest is now closed.
I'll get back with the results shortly.

I must confess that aaacb' first entry has a strong appeal to the darker side of me

However, I think I shouldn't give in to that side in a contest about the Hollidays

In that spirit, I appoint barondla with his first entry as the winner of this contest.



Now aaacb can tell barondla: "I made second place but you are the last but one"

All kidding aside, you can setup the next one, barondla. Looking forward to what you'll come up with.

By the way, perhaps we should have taken a pause over the Holliday season. I guess people have other things on their minds around this time of the year

Another great contest. Bart, thanks for picking my photo. I also found the B&W image by aaacb very moving.
I've set up contest #142 with the theme Transportation. Can be anything from people walking, running, riding, boating, to the machinery of transportation, or perhaps other things being transported. Very open theme. Hope to see lots of entries.

Thanks,
barondla
