After some thinking, I realized why Christmas has such a hold me—it’s the hope that comes with the holiday. Christmas drips with hope, and I know of few things that are more powerful than hope. I’m not talking about the “hope” that politicians (on both sides) bandy about during debates and speeches. Rather, I’m speaking of, well . . . actually, I’m talking about different levels of hope. Let me explain.
As part of celebrating the end of finals, I've decided to do another picture post. This one celebrates the Christmas season. Enjoy! Also, be sure to check out the guest post that I wrote for Sixteen & Successful: Break the Boredom for Winter Break. It has some of my favorite winter pictures that I've taken, and it includes some advice on how you can maximize your winter break (don't worry, it's fun stuff!).
