Is it just me, or is there something amazingly overwhelming happy in the Christmas spirit?  We just came back from our son's School Christmas presentation and it was nothing short of watching angels singing Christmas carols.  As a designer I can appreciate the importance of the visual but when it comes to Christmas I think that what you listen to is as equal if not more important than what you look at.  Christmas kettles on the streets of New York city, 106.7 repertoire of Christmas songs all day long while watching the snow coming down, the sound of chestnuts roasting on the fire, all those experiences would not evoke the same sentiment within us if there were silence.  There is no music in this post but there are a bunch of beautiful images for those of you who are still in the process of decorating.  Enjoy!
