This is your "feel-good" fix for the Season

First, we'd like to thank our fantastic readers, gentlemanly and scholarly commenters, our knowledgeable contributors and interpid explorers for their wonderful support in 2009 - and by the way, we have a few fantastic sweepstakes and giveaways up our sleeves in the beginning of 2010 (such as an all-expenses-paid trip to the exciting travel destination, courtesy of DRB and our sponsors, for example - watch our news in January). We are also very excited to welcome some talented people to our team of writers and photographers: expect to hear from them soon.

End of December is perhaps the most exciting time of the year: in-between days for all sorts of holidays, xmases, hanukkahs, newyears, hopes and joys - so why not have a blast celebrating it? So here we go again, with "FUNNY FUZZIES & FUZZY FUNNIES" end-of-year collection on DRB:

We got SQUID cards (designed by Ernst Haeckel) this year - more info:

Speaking about Hanukkah, here is a picture of how this wonderful time was celebrated at our household:

Something for the soul - a beautiful nativity scultured relief on a cathedral in Orvieto, Italy:

Glamorous ladies (with sweet, sweet smiles to brighten up the day)

More eye candy to greet 2010 - beautiful vintage ladies in movies and advertising of the 1960s:

Colleen Corby:

Hayley Mills:

Natalie Wood:

Agnetha Faltskog:

Dolores Hart:

Cars... were glamorous once, too:

But we digress... coming back to the holidays and seasonal themes:

Decorations not for the faint-hearted

The whole street covered with lights (I guess you will have to hover over it, overjoyed) -

Recycling your bottles:

On the left: you probably have seen this picture - the hanging guy is part of the decorations, too (which caused a few good people and sweet old ladies to come up with a ladder and try to heroically save the guy). And the decoration on the right is called "The Deer Hunter", of course:

Saving some electricity bills and effort:

Light up the night, with vengeance:

All sorts:

2010 is not 2012, thank goodness, so -

Looking into the future with confidence:

For reasons beyond our control we had somewhat less posts in 2009 than we intended. But things are looking great for 2010: we have a treasure-trove of unbelievably cool stuff to show you in the coming weeks - so stay tuned and (hopefully) excited.

Just wanted to let you know that the blue LED lights all over the ground is at Midtown in Tokyo, Japan. They do this "illumination" every year, each year a little different. It's a large lawn (not street) behind the shopping complex. The building you can see in the background is the Midtown building. It's in the Roppongi area of Tokyo.
