‘Tis The Season – Holiday Photos Hall of Fame

Ready or not, the holiday season is upon us once again! This is a perfect opportunity for you to showcase the diversity and richness of your community. Photo opportunities are (literally) around every corner. Get out your camera, and get ready to capture these images and share them on your favorite Agent Insight community pages.

Since Agent Insight launched in 2013, you all have shared so many excellent holiday submissions that include neighborhood decorations, local traditions, and holiday community events. We’ve picked out what we consider to be the best-of-the-best, our Holiday Photos Hall of Fame, in order to brighten your season and share some inspiration as you plan your posts for 2021.

Halloween kicks off the two-month holiday season with spooky neighborhood yard decorations, scary haunted houses, pumpkin patches, and trunk-or-treat parking lot events. Do you have a favorite you’d like to share? Submit it to Agent Insight!

Thanksgiving is a little tougher because it seems to get lost in the quick transition from Halloween to Christmas. However, you can write about special Thanksgiving feasts being prepared by local food kitchens. Snap pictures of a cornucopia brimming with gourds, vegetables, and pumpkins in a store window. Cover anything concerning pilgrims and the Mayflower, but especially remember the turkeys!

Finally, it’s Christmas. The month of December is a treasure trove of light displays, neighborhood decoration contests, and greenery everywhere. Take a photo of the Mayor’s Christmas tree, write an article about local holiday concerts and plays, or cover the annual parade, including Santa in his sleigh.  Many neighborhood entrance monuments are decorated for the season, making themselves easy targets for your camera lens. Here are some great pictures from Christmases past.

We hope these beautiful images have given you some inspiration to find the perfect photo opportunities in your own community. The next two months will be over before you know it, so take a deep breath and try to enjoy the time with your families and friends. We can’t wait to see what new photos we can add to our Holiday Hall of Fame for next year!
