Playing with the effects of bokeh is fun! (click on the blue link for a "how to") Every year I mean to work with it more, and even this year, I wish I would have done more. Christmas tree lights as a background look magical in a shallow depth of field. I only had a Christmas tree cut out at first, but then thought that a star would look more appropriate for the Holy Family (though in the original story, the Wise Men certainly would have gotten lost and never found Jesus if there were really this many bright stars guiding them! ;)).
