It's that time again...

...the Christmas Eve & Day Peace on Earth photos upload.

The goal is to have every photo uploaded and displayed on Christmas Eve and Day in the Weather Underground photo galleries titled Peace on Earth sending out our collective message to the world.

So grab your camera and take it with you (that's the first rule of photography) and while your out, take some wunderful photos. Then upload them on the Christmas holiday days and entitle them Peace on Earth. You can name and upload as many photos as you want as there can never be too much Peace on Earth. Or you can modify a photo in the current galleries and change its title to Peace on Earth.

Meanwhile, I will be be adding the uploaded photos to this blog so everyone, both on the blog side and the photo side of Weatherunderground, will be able to see them all in one place.

So, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all my online family of friends, bloggers and fellow photographers.
And thanks in advance for your contributions to this continuing tradition.

This is our 4th year of continuing our tradition of titling photos posted during Christmas Eve/Day.Last year over 25% of all the photos posts during Christmas Eve/Day 30 hour period had the title Peace on Earth. There were 3 times more photos submitted with that title than the previous 2 years combined. That's all to the credit of the sensitive and caring family of folks here.

The first step needed to be taken in the direction of “Peace on Earth” is to help mankind to practice peace with the plant & animal life on the globe to reasonably possible extents. It is required for this end obviously that the majority of human beings are to hopefully achieve ample peace of mind to be concerned at their heart with the conservation & improvement of ecological balance as needed. A closer look at most religions and positive teachings, doctrines & philpsophies may disclose such ultimate goals at their cores having been camouflaged by detailed rituals, etc…..

Seeing your photos along with your clever titles and captions, receiving your thoughtful comments and support to my photos, and reading your witty comments on other fellow photographers' photos was like a year-round Christmas gift. Thank you! May peace be on Earth and Merry Christmas to you and yours!

PS: It is not my house! While I was taking this photo, the branches of tree on the right started moving giving the movement to the lights. It was not wind, maybe squirrels?

It's been fun looking for something nice to contribute to Peace on Earth ! Thanks for holding this great event ! Best wishes for very happy holidays ! DB




I always find comfort after a heavy snowstorm, when the snow hangs on everything around and I hear the *white sound* and see a nice fire in the chimney... Have a wonderful Christmas Day !

I love, love, LOVE your tradition, and it is uploaded and named.

I scratched this on the beach on Wednesday, after a full week of rain. It was nice to get out and while it wasn't raining when I took this photo, it started shortly afterward. We're expecting more tonight, but we should have some clearing here and there. Working on getting a new camera to replace my quickly disfunctioning digital.

Many warm wishes for you and yours this Christmas Day.


"We hear the beating of wings over Bethlehem and a light that is not of the sun or of the stars shines in the midnight sky. Let the beauty of the story take away all narrowness, all thought of formal creeds. Let it be remembered as a story that has happened again and again, to men of many different races, that has been expressed through many religions, that has been called by many different names. Time and space and language lay no limitations upon human brotherhood."

~New York Times, 25 December 1937, quoted in Quotations for Special Occasions by Maud van Buren, 1938, published by The H.W. Wilson Company, New York

may peace prevail on earth - may we be honest w/our fellow humans, & end cruelty to all animals. Let these companions of mankind live their lives in peace for they comfort us in times of sorrow and bring happiness to our souls.

Numberwise, I'm not much of a blogger but I enjoy my visits to this other side of WUG as well. We haven't even gotten to Christmas Eve and we've already uploaded 3 times last year's total. I think I will be adding many more for you to scroll through so your heart can be warmed continually.

Maxa thank you for your international contribution, it makes the message all the more meaningful to have photos from all around the earth.
