30 Ways to Get into the Spirit
From concerts to caroling, basket making to ballerinas, these local traditions make getting into the holiday spirit as easy as a holiday stroll in the park. Plus we get expert tips on decking the halls.
A Legacy of Love
The loss of a child is more than most can handle. But Andrea and Phil Marella refused to be broken. This indefatigable couple is fighting for a cure to the rare disease that took their daughter and now threatens their son.
Jeffrey and Robin Selden show us how to throw the perfect holiday party—the smallest details (creatively displayed nibbles), perfect lighting (who doesn’t look good in a soft glow) and a deliciously creative menu.
Master in Our Midst
Meet the legendary Robert McGinnis. You know his work, but maybe not his name. In addition to some 1,400 book covers and fine art paintings, he has illustrated movie posters for Bond films, classics like Breakfast at Tiffany’s and modern-day blockbusters like The Incredibles. This very private artist lets us into his world.
