Interesting image, this is a wonderful example of minimal realism. It makes me think about what our holiday consumerism is doing to nature. Maybe we'd be ok with more minimal giving...think quality, not quantity.

I like your definition of it being minimal realism with a good thought to accompany it.

A good blog. I have bookmarked it for future visits.

I didn't even see the raccoons at first! Very well done. It's almost like a subliminal message, since most people who see a Christmas-themed image don't tend to look at them very closely.
