2.) “Christmas in America” is Jesse Rieser's photographic exploration of the big festive day! This is a Christmas that is complex and at times, uncomfortable. It’s awkward and sometimes bleak. But it is also sincere and celebratory, colorful and creative. Here is how he explains it: 


"Initially inspired by the absurdity of a five story inflatable Santa who appeared to be guarding a tree lot, I have launched this survey of uniquely American Christmas traditions. “Christmas in America” is an unvarnished examination of the ways people mark the holiday’s meaning. "I am excited to share my latest series, Christmas in America, Happy Birthday, Jesus. This new series is an on-going effort which will take place in a different city and region every year. The first chapter takes me to the state of Arizona where my family now resides.  Like all personal series, I have collaborated with celebrated fine art photography consultant and educator, Mary Virginia Swanson for my final edit.  Click here to see the series in its entirety explaining the concept and themes behind my project."









3.) AS many of you may know, I LOVE cookies. Truthfully, I love ANY kind of sweet.....but I give you a a few cookies that I love this holiday season!
