A very Bruegel Yuletide
For my money (what little I have), no artist portrays seasonal salutations better than the elder Bruegel with his 'Hunters in the snow.' The three ragged peasants and dog pack emerging from the spindly wooded glade, to behold the unraveling icy spectacle below, could be likened to a modern day parable of shoppers scavenging for last minute holiday bargains.
Parables are a big thing this time of year after all.
It could also be just my way of wishing you all a very merry feast of Saturnalia.
