Overview

During the Christmas season in Connecticut, you don’t have to look far to find the cherished aspects of the holiday, from one-of-a-kind ornaments and baked goods to spectacular light displays and classic Colonial houses draped in snow. Bringing it all together for the first time in one volume is A Connecticut Christmas, a full-color celebration of the spirit of Christmas in a quintessentially New England state. Celebrated television and radio reporter Diane Smith, who has told the stories of the people and places of Connecticut for two decades, highlights the many joyful things to see and do in Connecticut during the holidays, and she profiles some of the remarkable people who make the holiday season brighter for visitors and Connecticut residents alike.

Through a compelling blend of inspiring, heart-warming essays and stunning color photographs, A Connecticut Christmas presents fifty of the state’s traditional and lesser-known holiday scenes, sounds, specialties, activities, and more—including snow games, Christmas cookies, chocolate Santas, real-life Santas, artisan craft shows, holiday home tours, music for everyone, colorful theater productions, charity festivals, and individual expressions of goodwill. Underlying all is the message common to Diane Smith’s books: Caring, positive people make a difference.

Sure to lend the holidays an added magic touch, A Connecticut Christmas will be a treasured keepsake all year round.
