Christmas List

Forget visions of sugarplums and turkeys with trimmings. In this strange, surreal collection of full-color images, acclaimed photographer David Graham shows how Americans really experience Christmas-complete with tacky blinking lights, demented decorations, and the mess in the living room after all the presents are opened. Each offbeat image is accompanied by a quirky and unusual fact about Christmas; readers will learn that 28 percent of Americans admit to “regifting” their presents, that 22 million turkeys are consumed every year on December 25, and much more. The Christmas List is a hilarious, fresh look at classic American traditions.

DAVID GRAHAM works regularly for magazines such as the New York Times Magazine, Time, Newsweek, Fortune, and Forbes. His photographs are included in the collections of New York’s Museum of Modern Art, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. He lives in Newtown, Pennsylvania.
