Celebrate the Spirit of the Season
It's the most wonderful time of the year! This special edition from Meredith covers Christmas in all its beauty, warmth, and spirit. By revisiting the reason for the season—back to the manger in Bethlehem—and then tracing the holiday's traditions through the years and across the world, right up to today, this issue thoroughly explores and celebrates Christmas. Learn about the origins of Santa Claus, the development of gift-giving, and the emphasis on fellowship that defines this extraordinary day. And don't forget the countless pop culture incarnations: the stories, the movies, the songs. Meredith's The Magic of Christmas is built around stunning photography, beautiful writing, and a treasure trove of special treats (including the secret to the finest gingerbread and eggnog and glimpses of the most exceptional trees), along with a look at Christmas miracles past and present.
