Weekly Photo Challenge: Community

From Home to home, and heart to heart, from one place to another……The warmth and joy of Christmas, brings us closer to each other….” Emily Matthews 

This weeks photo challenge is Community. The term community has two distinct commutative meanings: 1) Community can refer to a usually small, social unit of any size that shares common values. The term can also refer to the national community or international community and 2) in biology a community is a group of  interacting living organisms sharing a populated environment (Wikipedia)

At this time of year Christmas unites the community. Even here in the desert there are lots of community Christmas themed events bringing people together with a common aim of enjoying the festive season. Whether it’s at a Christmas craft market, hotel, mall, tree lighting ceremony or a desert carol service, expats can share a little glimpse of Christmas spirit.
