I think I made the right decision to save the snowflake on red to post as my main Christmas greeting to you all, LOL. It suits a white winter day much better than the snowflake on black that I posted the other day : ) As you can see, the process of melting had begun, hence a not-quite-perfect snowflake - but its beauty is still there. I'm so glad I made myself go out into the bitter cold that day, as we haven't had that kind of snow since.
Wishing each and every one of you (who celebrates Christmas) a very happy Christmas, and I hope that you are fortunate enough to celebrate with family and friends. I send a special wish to those of you who spend Christmas alone for one reason or another. Everyone, have a safe, healthy and happy time, and I wish all of you all the very best in the New Year! I am so lucky to have you all as friends, both here in Calgary and overseas, more recent friends and those of you whom I have known for many, many years - and family (Rachel, my youngest daughter, here on Flickr) and my brother, John, in England. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!
