So this weekend was the true first holiday weekend – that is, if you count the holiday from the time the National Tree is lit through New Year’s Eve. I figure it’s from Turkeypocalypse Day through Hangover Day, but that’s just me.

Regardless, you were all out in force this past weekend, taking advantage of, well, pretty much everything going on. From holiday decor to Matchbox’s new location to new babies to Santarchy, it was a pretty full weekend. (I’ll politely ignore Maryland’s epic FAIL on Saturday night on I-270 since I was caught in it – and have the car damage to prove it.)

I’m also going to take the opportunity to remind everyone of our Holiday Photo Contest. Simply upload your photo to Flickr, drop it in the WeLoveDC group, tag it with “WLDC holiday 2008″ and look for our results in the new year. We’ve got some seriously awesome prizes and entry is FREE! So go, do it! You know you totally want to.

A sampling of what you guys did this weekend after the jump.

Having lived in the DC area for ten years, Ben still loves to wander the city with his wife, shooting lots of photos and exploring all the latest exhibits and galleries. A certified hockey fanatic, he spends some time debating the Washington Capitals club with friends – but everyone knows of his three decade love affair with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

A professional writer, gamer, photographer, and Lego enthusiast, Ben remains captivated by DC and doesn’t plan on leaving any time soon.
