Christmas Card Club "The Real Reason for the Season"

Good morning all.

Another cold frosty one last night but at least it's nice and bright during the day afterwards.

Two weeks gone already and it's time for our second Christmas Card Club challenge. Christine picked the theme this time and she set "The Real Reason for the Season".
