Christmas Walk In The Snow
26-DEC-2010 Jola Dziubinska

Christmas Walk In The Snow

Warsaw, Poland

It's a tradition in Poland to take a walk on the second day of Christmas, the 26th of December (called Boxing Day in Britain and known as Holy Szczepan, or St. Stephen's Day in Poland).
People walk around and go to churches to see the nativity scenes.

I love the feeling of this image. The lights on the ground are beautiful. I really like the composition and that the streetlights are leading the eyes to where the people are walking.

A Beautiful picture and a lovely way of celebrating. Unfortunately now in the UK the Christmas Windows are stripped out of the Shops on Christmas Eve, in preparation for the Sales that start on "Boxing Day"
