CURATE // ROUNDUP: Holiday Kitsch









































Nostalgia might be the strongest emotion that surrounds us during the holidays. We think of family traditions, celebrating Christmas as kids, and old holiday hits, whether that’s A Charlie Brown Christmas or Home Alone. It’s also a time to get unapologetically kitschy (side note: if you’re in Austin, Texas visit Lala’s, a faaaantastic divebar where it’s Christmas year-round). We dug up some photos celebrating the very kitschy, nostalgic best of the season…
