To me the holidays are also Candy Cane Season.  You can walk almost anywhere and always see a candy cane.  If you don’t see the actual candy, you see the pattern everywhere you go.  So this season, close your eyes and watch the candy canes dance in your heads.  I love this card because it is the essence of Christmas with all the colors and patterns.
