Often lost in the shuffle of shopping, parties, planning and decorating are the small moments, the random and well-worn traditions that connect us to our past, bring joy to the present and leave a legacy for the future.
Here in the Hoosier State, we have the angel that appears atop the clock of the former Ayres building at the beginning of each holiday season, and of course, the Circle of Lights celebration the Friday after Thanksgiving. Each small town has its own festival, parade or civic event, Metamora’s Christmas Walk, Christmas in Pendleton and Madison’s Festival of the Trees to name a few.
In the “The Twelve Days of Christmas” cousins Darcy and Noah experience holiday adventures that criss-cross the state.
To start a new Christmas tradition, get your copy of the book, read it with those you love and discover the joys and uniqueness of Indiana.
