Santa. My neighbour has a 10 year old son who still believes in him.
Though I have to say that even after a whole year I'm still struggling to accept the cold hard truth myself.

( Nice vignette )

Taking a rest from her shopping. Checking her list, then checking it twice. To see who's been naughty and who's been nice. Good one.

Thanks to everyone who has called in here today. It's been a busy day but there's only one exam session left at school and we've almost reached sanity. I'm hoping for a quiet weekend...
Re comments - I remember my fury when our daughter's friend told her that Santa was just Daddy. But ever since then I have been Mrs Santa at Christmas.

Your processing on this one really appeals to me - you seem to have gone maybe a bit darker than usual? Anyway, I like it - nice strong tonal contrasts appeal and grab my eye.

It's her expression that says it all for me - maybe on a hotline to Santa, but from the look on her face, I think she's texting with someone she cares a lot about - her children, or maybe a lover?

I used a much darker vignette than I would normally choose, to give a private, enclosed feel but also because the background was very bright and distracting.
Cheers everyone,
Moira

I don't know about santa claus more like an insanity clause after reading some of the comments on here! ho ho ho!Tongue Mikbee's sparkling wit has kept me entertained again, he's in a strange mood at present as only a few days ago he was on about writing a note to Santa requesting a new Nikon SLR camera on Simon Fletchers upload, so he is obviously a non believer now after I've read this!WinkGrin
