James de Luna: "Me and my buddy Jim regularly go out doing light-painting photography. The idea is to draw with light and illuminate objects during a long exposure. We never use editing software. This is straight from the camera."

Andrew Ward: "Five years ago, these logs were spared from the living-room fire by each being painted as Father Christmas. They spend 11 months a year in the cellar and emerge every December to sit by the front porch, an amusing and unusual greeting for visitors."

Usha Venkat: "My Christmas tradition is to make decoration items with my colleagues at work prior to the holidays. This year, we made snowmen. This year is a milestone celebration with the birth of our first grandchild. I finished the snowman with initials of our grandkid, K, his mom, S, along with my husband's and mine for the nose and lips. It was a sheer joy and precious moment."
