Round Robin Challenge: Hometown Holiday Decorations

Greetings Robins :) THIS CHALLENGE IS NOW CLOSED! THANKS FOR PLAYING :)

We are heading straight for Christmas, and other holidays of December, so lets do something a wee bit different! Let's combine my love for public art, with the wonderful joys of the holiday season! Grab your cameras, and photograph the public holiday decorations around the town you live in. Or, if you like, photograph a nearby town's decorations. Oh well, any old town will do, as long as it includes some holiday decorations. Holiday banners, giant sparkly snowflakes hanging from street lights, a town square decked with boughs of holly, or a wreath strewn street. A giant animated reindeer in the middle of a shopping mall, a large Christmas tree in a quaint village, all shiny and ready for Christmas! If it is a public decoration, and celebrates the upcoming holiday season, it will be perfect for this challenge!

Save the date for this challenge, it will be played on Saturday, December 13th. As always you can post your photo entry anytime between the midnights of that day, or for up to one week late if you have to be late with your entry for some reason. It is best, however, to try to post on the day of the challenge to get the maximum visitors possible. The most important thing is not to post your entry prior to the challenge date. We don't post the Linking List until the date of the challenge, so you won't be linked to until then! It's also a good idea to double check the R.S.V.P. link to your blog for any errors before you leave it. It should look like this...

It is extremely helpful to us if you leave your R.S.V.P. in this format. :) And that you double check your link! Also, if you are new to the challenges, be sure to let us know so we can welcome you properly! :)

Ok, that's all there is to it. Grab your cameras, GO BE PHOTOGRAPHERS, and comeback here on Saturday, December 13th, ready to show off your HOMETOWN HOLIDAY DECORATIONS!
