This year we’ve abandoned the traditional Christmas tree (to which we are all slightly allergic) for a minimalist “light -tree”. Not only are we itch and sneeze-free, but it takes up no space and doesn’t shed needles everywhere. Still trying to figure out what to do with our star, but short-term it’s sitting under the “tree” – where I’ve been photographing it.

Here are some other posts I’ve enjoyed from the challenge:
