Glad you like it, Symona! My inspiration for this shot was remembering when I was a kid. My dad would test the Christmas lights by stretching them out across the floor and plugging them in. I never knew why he stretched them out, but I loved how they looked. When we moved into a house last fall that had hardwood floors just like my childhood home, I knew I had to get a shot of what I remembered. To me, this is the shot that means Christmas. Ah, memories!
