Photo Challenge: What Makes You Joyful? (PHOTOS)

According to our community members, there's nothing like cuddling up with your pup on the couch when it's cold out. Or spending time watching your young ones play dress up for the holidays.

From the pictures our community members submitted to our photo challenge this week, it's clear: your life-long companions bring you the most joy throughout the year. Whether at the beach or in the snow, it's our friends and family that help us through the seasons.

What makes you joyful? Head to Instagram to snap a photo, tag it #hpjoy to be included in the round-up below, and kindly let us know the comments section what it means to you.
