Christmas comes but once a year, which is just as well as we only have to make one Christmas card per year.
Barbara always makes Christmas cards from her photos, often using one from one of the trips during the year, but sometimes abstract themes. This year she decided to make a card using photos taken during our trips in Ruby, compiled into a Christmassy theme. After a lot of trials and discussions, the result was chosen and the cards printed.
One of the items in the card is a URL pointing to this blog, where many of the originals are to be found. This entry shows the card. By definition it has to be posted when we send the cards out, and some of the cards go to far away places, where it's difficult to estimate how long it will take for them to arrive. Which is an excuse as to why this message is going up early for Christmas.
In any case, when it arrives, have a great Christmas and a happy and prosperous New Year.
