    ♫ Have a holly, jolly Christmas;
    It’s the best time of the year
    I don’t know if there’ll be snow
    but have a cup of cheer
    Have a holly, jolly Christmas;
    And when you walk down the street
    Say Hello to friends you know
    and everyone you meet..♫

    Lyrics and Music by Johnny Marks, recorded by Burl Ives.

    As in past years we would like to (finally!) take a moment from the hustle and bustle of the holiday season and wish everyone the Best of the Holidays and a Happy New Year!  This year in particular I would like to thank all my guest contributors who have enriched this blog with their wonderful and thought-provoking ideas.

    Our gift to everyone is a few minutes of images set to music.  To see this year’s complete slide show to music (turn up your speakers!) click on the link below (please be patient it may take a few minutes to start):

    For those with a photography bent, most images were taken with either a Panasonic DMS-G3 camera with the 14-42mm Lumix G VARIO f/3.5-5.6 lens or an Olympus TOUGH with an Olympus 4.5-15 mm f/2.0-4.9 lens.  A few were taken on cell phones.  All were taken within the last 12 months.

    The music is “A Holly Jolly Christmas” which is a Christmas song written by Johnny Marks and most famously performed by Burl Ives (per Wikipedia).  It is performed by the Argyle Alumni Choir, Argyle Senior Secondary School, North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, copyright Frances Roberts, Director. Used with permission.

    We hope you enjoy the images and the music. Best wishes for the holidays and all the best in the New Year!

      I enjoy seeing your year in review each year. It is nice to see the world through your eyes and your camera’s eye.

      Merry Christmas from the Gallagher family of Narberth, PA.

      That was a fun way to spend five or six minutes. Thanks for compiling and posting this great photo and musical interlude.

      Best wishes for 2015 to you and Colleen and all your loved ones too.
