Agreed. Also, Canada has a Thanksgiving holiday, albeit on a
different date I think. With a Thanksgiving label we may get some
clipart that's US-specific (Pilgrims and Indians type of stuff), but
we can label that with a northamerica keyword (or even unitedstates)
for filtering purposes. As more and more of the planned keyword-based
sorting and navigation and whatnot comes online later such keywords
will allow users more control over what they're looking at.
Speaking of that... I expect quite a lot of Halloween and
Thanksgiving stuff will also fit in other categories, such as food.

Worksforme. But for Christmas we should probably have separate
keywords (and thus categories) for the religious and secular aspects
of the holiday. (I know if I'm looking for Christmas stuff for a
bulletin insert I do *not* want to wade through a bunch of Santa and
Rudolph and Frosty and wrapped packages; someone who's looking for
those things OTOH probably won't want to wade through mangers and
shepherds. When we get keyword-based crosslisting working, borderline
stuff like bells could be listed in both subcategories.) Also, we
might get some stuff for other holidays around the same timeframe (New
Year, Hannukah, ...) and that also should be keyworded and sorted
separately, not lumped together with Christmas.
Also, you may get some "Christmas" images submitted that are really
just winter, like snowflakes. I believe we already have an evergreen
tree under plants; it could be crosslisted for Christmas (under the
secular Christmas stuff category with Santa and whatnot).
