The Best Christmas Decorations in Chicagoland
ISBN: 0964279924 Tabagio Pr. 1995
The holiday spirit is alive and well in America’s heartland--and nowhere does it shine so brightly as in Chicago. This delightful book takes readers on a thoroughly entertaining tour of Chicagoland in all its Christmas finery. From the storytelling windows at Marshall Field’s (now Macy’s), drawing admirers from hundreds of miles away, to the most elaborate light show in a neighborhood cul-de-sac, The Best Christmas Decorations in Chicagoland guides you to more than 200 of the finest annual holiday displays in the greater Chicago area.
In this fully updated and expanded edition of her 1995 bestseller, Mary Edsey shares humorous stories about decorators, decorating tips and trends, and historical trivia. The book, which features 200 dazzling color photographs of Chicagoland’s “best and brightest,” covers the city proper as well as the surrounding counties--residential, business, and municipal efforts--and includes maps, detailed directions, and display hours. Whether as a guide to the holiday sights in Chicago or a Christmas feast for the eyes, this is a book that perfectly captures the season’s irrepressible spirit.
