10 Chicago photo locations to create your most epic holiday card ever

By Michelle Elfvin

It is as important as ever to embrace peace, love and unity, and remind each other to be grateful for the people and places around us. With the holidays approaching, there is no better time to start reflecting on what is most important, and begin spreading images of togetherness.

If you are thinking about spreading the love through a holiday card, or cards of gratitude, you don’t have to wait just because snow hasn’t begun to fall. Chicago is a melting pot of brightly colored mosaics, shiny sculptures, incredible architecture and magnificent murals. This is the year to “up” your holiday game. There is far too much beauty around, and what better way to spread love than with your most epic holiday card ever.

I encourage everyone to flood family, friends and social media with powerful messages and images this season. There is no better time than now to spread an abundance of joy.

Here are 10 perfect locations with powerful messages worthy of this season’s holiday card.
