It has been aptly said that it isn't what's under the Christmas tree that counts, it's who's around it. Today we are continuing with our old fashioned Christmas theme, and focusing this week on the old fashioned priority of spending more time together during the holidays. This old world tradition is still with is in many ways, but usually we've cluttered it all up with so much activity that stress is at an all time high by the time we gather.
Let's take a break from all the hustle and bustle, and gather 'round the tree for some photo sessions. And, not just your ordinary photo sessions mind you. Instead of the typical serious or posed and formal looking shots, this is a great opportunity to have some fun and just get goofy. Save the shining faces and perfect dimpled grins for some other time, and jump on board with photos that will make you, your family and anyone who sees them giggle. Yes, giggle!
Nothing like combining an old fashioned tradition with technology too. With digital cameras, now you don't have to spend so much money developing pictures you aren't sure anyone will want or, in this case, giggle over. Now you can take dozens and dozens of shots, view them all on your computer and decide which ones you want to print. Getting serious or goofy and even being extreme makes it all the more fun.
Make the most of the pictures that come from this kind of fun, and create your Christmas card for either this or next year. I don't know about you but I love getting those kind of cards in the mail. They really do make me smile and giggle and feel good all day.
