The winter holidays are a unique time of year. Families reunite from across the globe in celebration. It is a time to share, to give, and to recant the year past. For some it is stuffed with spiritual overtones and practice, to others, holidays are a time to imbibe the rituals of seasonal culture. So whether you dress your pine tree with family heirlooms and strands of lights, or eat Latkes in cohort and light the nightly Menorah, or simply pass neatly wrapped packages triumphant with ribbon, it is a time to revel in the good spirit, sing festive songs, and tip a glass to a season that has become a universal holiday.
But, let's not forget to capture the many wonderful moments. The season is ephemeral, and soon all of our relatives and friends will return home to be reintegrated with the minutia of life and the prospect of 2010. What better lasting gift than to warm the cold winter months with photos and videos that capture the spirit of the holidays. So say CHEESE and make those perfect moments ever lasting. Capture mom in mid carol, or your baby sister dipping her hand into a pie, a first kiss under mistletoe, grandpa's amazing Christmas sweater, and dad's look of exasperation at all the presents!
When the seasons over you can upload and share all of these great moments with your family on MyHeritage family website. Photo and video sharing is both free and easy. Within, you can organize your media into thematic albums and view them in stunning slide shows that can be shared with anyone.
Enjoy the festive season, deck the halls, spin a dreidel, and tell an old story. And through it all, capture some moments, for memory is the most invaluable present to carry forth in 2010.
