A Connecticut Christmas: Celebrating the Holiday in Classic New England Style, by Caryn B. Davis
The quintessential Americana Christmas starts in Connecticut—with its coastal hamlets, 17th century villages and old world traditions, there’s no other place to be for the Holidays. Customs of bygone eras are still alive today, and Davis’s book illuminates these so perfectly, the photographs seem to sparkle off the page. Paired with historical essay, this is an exquisite tour of CT history and holiday— and a celebration of a time and place untouched by modernity. Complete with stately homes, extravagant settings, trees, farms, and festivals, you’ll find familiar places therein (Gillette Castle, Essex Steam Train, and of course The Griswold Inn!)
