Had real fun with this. My wife has a punch which produces little xmas trees. One punched out hole in front of the lens later - Voila! little xmas tree bokeh all over the place. The lights were some spare after hanging decorations - how very festive.

Not much procesing - curves, WB, straighten ( a little), convert from raw, USM, save for web

I think the background is too dark and have some distractive points, like the upper part, where is a part of the roof or something. I'm not sure about this bokeh, but it looks more blurry than bokeh for me. Sorry if i was rude.

being that I'd never heard of Bokeh and have spent the last week trying to learn about it and finding many varying opinoins on it is a tough one to judge
