This is the most wonderful time of the year when children pick and choose their favorite pumpkin which is used for jack-o-lantern as the inside carving makes for delicious pumpkin pies.

#CityImages welcomes the time for relaxation and festivity beginning with Haloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's day with the intervening time to celebrate many others like Hannukah, Kawanza...etc.

This special time from starts in October until January during which many holidays are celebrated. We are looking forward to celebrating with family and friends during the holidays. The image of a young lady above in my youngest, Olivia.
