Southerners hold our traditions close to our hearts, and never more so than at Christmastime. As our Southern Lady team put together this special holiday issue, with page after page of familiar Yuletide motifs, sweet temptations, tablescapes inspired by classic carols, and more, it kindled a sense of nostalgia for the Christmas customs that each one of us has come to cherish, and we hope it does the same for you. Tour gorgeous homes bedecked for the holidays, offering plenty of inspiration to dress your own home with utmost festivity. You’ll also find recipes for everything from celebratory beverages to mouthwatering appetizers to delectable desserts—even treats made just for gifting, as well as an abundance of gift-wrap ideas. From our family to yours, have a very, Merry Christmas!
