Daughter works on a Covid-19 testing crew. Member of her unit tested positive so they all had to quarantine and she missed Christmas at home. We kept the tree and decorations up until she could be here. Hence, Round 2. :-)

From a technical standpoint the mixed light sources here was tricky. Had a lot of cyan coming in via the windows and then the warm interior lights. Ended up sliding the cyan down to about 30% - needed to leave a touch to come thru otherwise it just didn't look realistic.
