Summary

Summary

Beneath the commercialism of a season our culture now calls "the holidays," true Christmas waits to be rediscovered. It isn't about self-indulgence or shallow "good cheer" that evaporates on December 26. It's about love and giving. Those who celebrate true Christmas reflect this spirit. They are drawn to love cold winter, total strangers, friends and neighbors, family...and the Christ child Himself. Thomas and Nanette Kinkade share their thoughts, memories, and dreams in a book that honors the newborn King.


Author Notes

Thomas Kinkade was born in Sacramento, California in 1958. He spent one summer on a sketching tour with a college friend and afterwards produced the instructional book, The Artist's Guide to Sketching. The book's success landed the two artists at Ralph Bakshi Studios to create background art for the animation feature, Fire and Ice. After the film, Kinkade began earning a living as a painter and is now one of America's most collected living artists. He has also written numerous books including Lightposts for Living and the Cape Light series.
