A Christmas story

I went to the Holiday Nights at Greenfield Village with a group of friends. We stopped by a fire ring circled with benches to take a break and warm up, when a jovial old man in a brown coat and black hat approached us. Before we knew it, several other folks had joined us at the fire, and the old man began telling the story A Visit from St. Nicholas, reciting it from memory for all of us to hear. He was one of many storytellers dispersed around the village, and told the story with great gusto and warmth, as one might imagine such stories being told to young ones back in the 19th century. Photo shot with a Nikon D7200 and a 24mm f/1.4 lens.
