Charles Dickens created the classic holiday tale, A Christmas Carol. The story’s message of the importance of charity and good will towards all humankind struck a powerful chord in the United States and all over the world. On that note, InLove is expanding its horizons by including international features, not just American-Ukrainian stories.
Wintertime has always burst with holiday joy! Throughout time immemorial, regardless of religion or region, there have always been fun stories to tell and awesome celebrations to have during the holidays.
The simplest way to rejoice is to count your blessings and be grateful for them.
This Winter Holiday issue celebrates Brooklyn with all its hype-hip cachet.
Brooklyn has approximately 2.5 million residents, and is the fourth most populous U.S. Boro. Brooklyn has roughly 700 arts and cultural institutions and 30 miles of waterfront. Brooklyn’s official motto is “In Unity There’s Strength.” A fascinating destination to visit and exciting place to live, Brooklyn is a dynamic NYC hub, and it is widely considered to be one of the “It” places in the world right now.
Our inspiration for this year’s holiday style is a ravishing goddess in gold, our cover for this winter holiday edition.
