Welcome to our One Word One Photo challenge, brought to you by our Challenge Chick Holly.

It's a busy season. Christmas. Hanukkah. Kwanza. New Year. In this holiday season let us not forget what makes it special, or in my case at least what I wish for to make it more special.

For better or worse, what is the one thing that makes you feel this holiday season the deepest in your heart? Do you feel overwhelmed by the "shopping?" Do you feel like hibernating from the "cold?" Do you wish you could find "peace" from the hustle and bustle or do all the festivities of the season bring you "joy?" Family. Presents. Menorah. Lights. Colors. Tree. If there was nothing else, what one thing would still define this season for you?

I chose the word Holy. The first decoration I put out each year at this time - and the last one I put away after all others have been cleared away for days - is my Nativity set. More than shopping, more than parties, more than decorations and presents, I want this season to be Holy in my heart. Its not easy with all the other distractions, but I try. Each night I take a few minutes to just stop and gaze at my nativity set, trying to remember the reason for the season.
