Seeing as tnchick, the woman behind the Photo Hunt, is a Christian living in a predominantly Christian land, I don't think it purely coincidental that the inspired meme's theme this week is one that brings to mind the twelve days of Christmas (the song as well as festive period), Jesus' twelve apostles and such like.
As far as I am concerned though, this time of the year is less imbued with religious significance per se and more notable for it being spent with the family as well as on holiday -- and this is what my choice of photo for this blog entry is about. More specifically, the twelve pieces of footwear on view belong to my parents, my two siblings, one of my siblings' long time (more than twelve years, in fact!) significant other and myself.
Usually, the wearers of these six pairs of footwear are to be found in four different territories on three different continents. But for this festive period (and the first time in about four years), we're spending some -- though, actually, fewer than twelve -- nights under the same roof as well as a single part of the world. And hoping to have a generally good time while doing so! ;b
