Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Nothing reminds us of the good things in life?family, friendship, food, and good cheer?more than Christmas. With stunning images and illuminating text, award-winning photographer Peter Guttman offers a dazzling overview of the wintry landscapes, traditions, ceremonies, spectacles, and pastimes of the holiday season throughout the United States. His photos shine a spotlight on caroling, tree cutting, ski picnics, burning of the greens, ice sculptures, and hearth cooking in New Hampshire; sleigh rallies, cozy inns, and ice fishing in Vermont; dog-sledding, Christmas teas, and the nation's largest gingerbread house in Minnesota; sculpture creations, bonfires, and slave cabin illuminations in Louisiana; plantation displays and riverboat festivities in Mississippi; and gloriously decorated store windows, tree lightings, and The Nutcracker in New York. This is a treasure that honors more than the holiday: it celebrates America and the human spirit.
