Default FOTM December 2012 - "Holiday Cheer!"

So here is another month for those who like to get festive with their Foresters!
This month's theme is...

December: "Holiday Cheer"
- holiday themed photos, ANY holiday applies




This month is for those who like to celebrate the holidays with their Foresters. Some of you may already have shots like this while others may need to go searching for them. Whether you're parked in front of the house with all of your Christmas lights on, hauling presents down to the local toy drive, or even helping the easter bunny haul some eggs... If your Forester is embracing the holiday season then this is your chance to enter! This contest usually comes down the best photograph, so show your best shot for the best chance of winning. This month also doesn't care which holiday your Forester is celebrating. It could be Easter, Hanukkah, Christmas, Halloween, St Patrick's Day, or Flag Day. It doesn't matter!

NON-FORESTER EXAMPLE:


Mostly the same rules as always:

-Photos must be in hosted format and embedded in your post
-The photos must at least contain YOUR Forester and not someone else's.
-No more than 4 photo's per entrant
-Polls will begin when we get 10 entries or December 18th, whichever happens first.

THIS YEAR'S WINNERS:
January - FXTSPORTS08
February - abacall
March - jwright77
April - subaruguy72
May - Pam_Cakes
June - pleiad7
July - DrAg1n320
August - yallahyimshi
September - sooblover
October - EuroJosh

Diwali is the Hindu festival of lights, celebrating triumph of good over evil, and coincided with the harvest in ancient times. It is the biggest event in the Hindu calendar.
Some shots of my Foz under Diwali lights:


Light reflecting off the roof of my Foz,creating a "pool of water" effect.

While still in the holiday period I got married, so I think the next shot is within the scope of this competition- final say up to mods though. This is me in the Foz arriving at my bride's home to wed her:

remember, this theme isn't specific to the upcoming holiday season. If your car is sporting a set of rabbit ears and teeth for Easter is can also enter.
