December 2011 Calendar Shot

December.. Oh the closing month of yet another beautiful year is right here.

I was not able to decide which of the two clicks describe the mood of december best.
So here are both of them for you all. Merry Xmas! all of you.


[Clicked with a sony cyber-shot - The wrapped gifts remind me of the Santa game]



[Clicked @ Leavenworth , Christmas season 2009. Camera: D3000 Nikon DSLR]

Facts of December:

* Some people call it "the frosty month."
* The latter part of December has long been a holiday season. The Romans honored Saturn, the god of agriculture, with a festival called Saturnalia.
* A well known fact which needs no explanation - Christians celebrate birthday of Jesus Christ on the 25th of this month.
* December's flower is the narcissus or holly.
* December's birthstone is the blue turquoise or zircon.

What else??

The best part of December is go back and remember what happened throughout the year. We know the events, but looking back and summarizing them is a different experience
