Normal Rockwell, Currier and Ives, H. Hargrove and Thomas Kinkade all conjure instant visions of the holiday seasons in our heads. Why? Well, because with snow and icicle-dusted roofs, twinkling lights, wreaths and garland, plus convincing scenes of families and friends making the most of the season, they represent the idyllic holiday we all hope to have each year. And let’s face it, we could all use a bit of fantasy this 2020 holiday season.
While many of us stay put this year to help stop the spread of COVID-19, we thought it’d be the perfect time to virtually visit the real-life places of these iconic holiday and Christmas scenes that were painted to perfection by brushstroke.
