anything that represents the holiday's to you. If the Wintery atmosphere represents the holiday season to you, go for it.

If only I had the money. :P I mean, I've got pictures from a few years ago but those aren't able to be entered.

 

I wish I had gone to Hollywood Studios when I went there in November. They've got some cool Christmas stuff up.
