Do you have any personal traditions or rituals around Xmas?

In our household some family traditions have been:

  1.  creating a ‘tree’ in a glass jar from discarded trimmings at the tree sales lot.
  2.  making a vegan version of egg nog and enjoying it liberally through the first of January.
  3.  holding up in our apartment with movies to watch non-stop through the holidays and not going outside.

Does the imminence of the new year affect your mood?

Not really. I’m just happy for a nice long 2 week holiday to decompress at the end of the year, do what I want and then actually be ready for the first day of work during the first week of January.

Photographic resolutions…

I’ve decided to do less documentary photography and more of my favourite – abstract images.
