    Everybody, don't forget just to post general light displays, too. Jeff mentioned it in another thread and we want everyone to post in the show off thread.

    That way, we all get to see a little of everyone's Christmas!!!!

    I love the way our church is decorated but you'll have to wait until mid December to post some pictures.

    Very!!! There is another, more "everyday use" chapel at the back, which is very modern in decor and hasn't nearly as much stained glass (the front part probably caused a national shortage!!!) I'll try and find relatively clear shots of the stained glass. It was a new camera and I was still finding my feet with it, so all things considered, I was lucky!!

    Those picture's are beautiful.

    Does anyone else ever stay up to watch Christmas mass from the Vatican? It comes on at midnight here on the east coast but it is always so beautiful and you are in awe at how beautiful it is inside.
