I don't know if you have noticed but this year Christmas Day coincided with the full moon.
I've checked on the net and it's quite uncommon, last time was in 1977 and the next will be in 2034:

I've taken this picture at 18:30 local time in France from my parent's house and it was already fully dark.
It's located in the Alps, at an elevation of 1150 m and the mountain in the background is the Mont-Blanc, one of the highest peak in Europe (4810 m).
Uncommon also the absence of snow. Usually the fields are filled with snow but this year it hasn't snowed since late November to the disappointment of the tourists coming for the ski slopes.

Twin Panasonic GX1 + Samyang 7.5mm lenses. 50s exposure.
The moon was very bright and the landscape quite dark, I've not been able to reproduce what was viewable with bare eyes: details on the face of the moon and details in the landscape.

Pierre.
