Not a Christmas avatar but a winter one.
The USS Constitution at Charlestown Naval Yard last night (Dec 16) under snowfall.

That is indeed a lovely picture. Did you take it yourself?

My avatar btw was just a rather silly reference to the red pill from the Matrix, that popped into my head when I was signing up here.

This is probably the very first time that my avatar, my nickname and my signature line are all concordant.  :D

Not as many times as yours, that's for sure.   :P

Hah! :D I’m sure I’ve got some kind of GMG record for ‘Most Avatar Changes In One Day’. ;) You know, it would be kind of funny if GMG had some kind of award show to poke fun at its members.

As of late, poking fun at its members has meant more often than not that someone's going to take it personally offensive.

Orwell was an optimist, and so was Kafka.  ;D

No, I don't think they are all concordant. We are obviously looking at Eusebius and NOT Florestan here!

Since I’m in a Grieg kind of mood as of late, I thought this would be appropriate:
“Competitions are for horses, not artists.”

Grieg is looking more like Karl Marx than Santa there...

Delius actually doesn't wish anyone a Merry Christmas as indicated here:

Switching to a colourful, abstract, space age theme, the beautiful patterns of the universe. The classical music justification being that this image appears on the Ligeti Masterworks box.
