    Country Woman is one of my favorites.

    Filled with warm family stories, recipes, beautiful pictures, decorating ideas and best of all NO advertisement pages or inserts.

    They have several magazines besides Country Woman; Taste of Home; Country are just a few. I always look forward to the Christmas issue.

    I like the Christmas issue of nearly any magazine, but especially nice is the Reminisce Christmas issue. Great old stories and photographs. 8)

    Christmas themed magazines are my favorite magazines!! But my very favorite every year is the Taste Of Home Christmas edition! I hope they never let me down! :-? Also Better Homes & Garden (though I haven't been all that impressed with it), Country Living, Home, Family Circle, Good Houskeeping, & Ladies Home Journal come to mind.

    Sheeps, we're on the same page there! I LOVE that magazine.

    My other favorite is the Saturday Evening Post. It's still being published, and it still features lots of Norman Rockwell. Their Christmas edition tops them all, even features articles like the classic "Yes Virginia, There is a Santa Claus."

    Add: Country Living, Country Home, and Just Labs.

    On another note: I just went down to the den, a room I don't use all that often, and found LAST YEAR'S editions of Country Living, Country Home, Reminisce, and the Saturday Evening Post.....I started reading them all over again. I need to get a life!

    I don't purchase EVERY Christmas magazine I see. There was one at the grocery store today that was $7.99 and after thumbing thru it There weren't much in it besides lots of advertisements and a couple recipes.

    It's good to show restraint now and again.

    We have 2 awesome magazines put out by the same company. Actually I think it is a Spanish publication in the French language. Maybe if there are some Canadians here they may have seen it cause there is a price on the cover also that includes Canada (or maybe Quebec).
    The magazine is called "Mariane Maison" and the other "LEs Idees de Marianne" One covers more needle work but they are both extremely full of stuff. The first one has decopage papers included in every issue and I am waiting for the Christmas one to come out. Even Martha stewart would be jealous :D When I charge up the camera I will take photos of old ones from a few years ago and make a page on my album and share. I think it will be ok. ok?

    Well, I started getting the Better Homes and Gardens Special Editions many years ago, at least the Christmas Cookies and Holiday Cooking/Holiday Baking ones. I also like Southern Living's Home For The Holidays, and Martha's Christmas Cookies issue.

    I just picked up a new one for this year, Paula Dean's Christmas. It's okay. Though my wife keeps hoping that sooner or later, Alton Brown will do a Christmas mag or book of some kind.
