Create a Magical Holiday Season for You and Yours . . .
You know the moment when it feels like Christmas--when you make your annual pilgrimage to the tree lot and the 'blue spruce or pine' debate commences, when you share favorite memories over a second helping of your mother's stuffing, or when you feel the tug in your throat during the holiday pageant.
Now you can revel in the true meaning and spirit of the season with Ultimate Christmas, an entertaining, touching, and uplifting collection of true stories and awe-inspiring photographs of holiday magic (and a little mania ). From the kindness and generosity of strangers to the turkey that got away, from the innocence and pure joy of a child to the tree that really was too tall to fit, this Yuletide treasury will make you laugh and cry, and help you celebrate everything that is delightful--and perhaps slightly dysfunctional--about the holidays.
And, if you're searching for some holiday inspiration, fashion and decorating guru Jeanne Bice, the founder of The Quacker Factory, shares must-know info for making things merry, including eco-friendly ways to deck the halls, a simple, sensational open house menu, homemade crafts, and etiquette rules for regifting, holiday 'brag' letters, and the dreaded fruitcake.
This is the ultimate Christmas volume you'll want to bring out year after year to help create lasting memories and savor the warmth of the season.
