Christmas in St. Louis is a special time in a special place. As you’ll discover in the pages of this festive pictorial book, the Gateway City goes all out to celebrate the season. Folklorist and Professor Dr. John Oldani and photographer Mark Scott Abein have created a living album of Christmas wonders. Learn how traditions developed and shifted throughout the decades, from the iconic and nostalgic downtown department store windows to the millions of light displays all over the metro region. Along the way the book captures the international flavor of Christmas in Main Street St. Charles, the remarkable residential displays of St. Louis Hills, the one million lights of Tilles Park, the dazzling mile and a half drive at Our Lady of the Snows, and the myriad of other traditions that have come to define a St. Louis Christmas.
