In spiritual terms, I'd say those are the places that Christmas is best at breaking in. As always, a beautiful image. The "warm" spot means so much. I struggle with "off center" placement of subjects in highly vertical images like this, when I'm the one doing the cropping. To my thinking, this image suggests that "center" means half-way down, not half-way right and left.
It got to Ebenezer Scrooge!
