Christmas Greetings 2012

For general Christmas greetings and more, visit my Thoughts & Sayings.

I want to depart from travelogues for a few days to focus on my favorite holiday, Christmas.

I love Christmas and its many traditions. The celebration of Jesus Christ’s birth and the trappings of the season hold a special place in my heart. No matter where in the world I live or what cultural events and traditions I observe, Christmas will always be my favorite.

When I was young, I used to draw illustrated Christmas cards for family and friends. In the days before technology made it easier to do graphic design, I spent hours sketching cartoon characters and winter scenes by hand. I haven’t had time in years to sit down and sketch a Yuletide scene — I barely have time nowadays to send out an annual Christmas letter — but I still enjoy looking at cards from Christmases past.

Here are some of them. I hope they make your holidays a little brighter!

    You are so talented in so many ways. I remember some of your drawings–not the specifics, but your style. Have a Happy New Year!

      Thanks, Shauna. Happy holidays to you and the family. It’s been a long time since I drew like that; I wish I had more time to do it again. I hope you had a Merry Christmas and that the new year will be great. I’ll see you in July — we’re heading to your area again this summer. I’ll send you a message with more details.
