Christmas In July

Yes, you read that right. Our theme this week, in the middle of July, is Christmas!

Contest Rules:


1. Any digital photo or digitally-scanned photo relevant to the theme will be accepted within the contest period. In case there's a gray area, or you're not sure if the picture is suitable, check with me first.

2. Size limitations: Your photo is only limited to the file size limitation set by PhysicsForums. However, your may want to consider reducing the size of your photo if the file size exceeds 1 Mb. If your file is being hosted elsewhere, I will have to see how it is being displayed here, and I may ask you to resize and resubmit if it causes problems.

3. Upload your photos to any of the photo servers such as imageshack or photobucket. Then post it the relevant contest thread and link your picture using the img command. PM me if you do not know how. Alternatively, you may simply upload your image file to PF, and then have the full image displayed in your post.

4. Only ONE picture per member per contest. Once a picture is posted, it cannot be changed other than a total withdrawal by that member from that week's photo contest. Exceptions will be made for modification to comply with the rules, such as resizing.

5. At the end of the contest period, I will open a poll and every PF member can vote for the picture they like best.

6. Note that in case we have a large number of entries, I will do the polling in more than one thread. If that's the case, you can vote in each of the polling threads. The photos will be assigned in the polling threads in the order they were submitted.

7. The photo of the subject must be something that you took directly, not via in intermediary medium, and not taken by someone else. Unless otherwise noted, a photo of another photo, painting, print, etc. does not qualify.

8. You can use a picture only once. Once it is used in a contest, it cannot be reused in another contest.

9. Please post only pictures meant for submission in this thread. Photos not meant for submission must not be posted in the contest thread. Posting of more than one photos by a member may result in an automatic disqualification from the week's contest.

Glad this came round again, as last time (only last year) I forgot I had photos that fit.
Well this is actually August, will that do? Still weird. (Looks better if you enlarge it to fill the screen).
Quite a big shop in Québec City full of nothing but Christmas stuff.
Does anyone have an explanation – like does the climate prohibit shopping later than September?

A couple of reindeer at Santa Claus's Arctic Circle workshop near Rovaniemi, Finland.

This was about 45 years ago. The modern-day Santa Claus Village is a lot bigger than I remember it.

Well that is no doubt summer, as they appear to be moulting. Or maybe you write molting. Which for some reason suddenly struck me as a peculiar word so I looked it up and Today I Learned that it has the same linguistic root as 'mutate' etc. e,g, Latin mutare to change.
Then an hour later I wondered about 'mutual'. And that too is related, like change is to exchange.
We live, even a long time, and learn. And hopefully here make it a bit quicker for some others.

Just in case there is a misunderstanding, the theme is on Christmas. It doesn't have to be Christmas decoration in the month of July. Any Christmas-themed photo taken at any month qualifies.

Sprout crackers, wind up reindeer and cute little cork creatures made by my sister in law last Christmas (and unfortunately cut-off in this photo)
