Rockwell and the holidays

Some would say that I am a bit obsessed with the Christmas holidays. And? The holidays are fast approaching — I know because Target Christmas ads are now on TV.

This is why I was especially excited to visit the the Norman Rockwell Museum which contains the largest collection of original Rockwell paintings and magazine covers in the universe. Included in the collection are many of Rockwell’s Santa Claus paintings that had graced the Saturday Evening Post. As a true admirer of Norman Rockwell and of the jolly ol’ elf it seemed fitting to share some of the very best photos taken at the Rockwell Museum:

For anyone who loves the sentimentality and charm of Rockwell I wish you the happiest of holidays.
