It's Christmas Eve afternoon here in Virginia. Family is napping while football is on. None of our creatures are stirring. We're looking forward to the holiday with family tomorrow. I'm taking a break, looking over photos from the past year and past posts to mark the season.
A little over a year ago, I had some talks in Vienna, Warsaw and Bratislava. I was able to see the Christmas market in Vienna and experience some wonderful hospitality in Warsaw. It was a great trip and I was able capture some nice photos of Europe in winter.
In previous Decembers I have shared historic Christmas cards, art from the Library of Congress, photos from Christmas at the White House, holiday lights from the 9:30 Club in DC, and a first snowman. The rain here in Alexandria appears to have passed and I can see a few crazy squirrels try to knock a bird feeder to the ground again, looking for snacks.
Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!
