One of the most famous and iconic scenes created of Norman Rockwell christmas paintings is this one of a family arriving at Grandma’s House for Christmas, armfuls of presents and tracking snow in – probably the ideal picture of how most Christmas Eve’s were in your Childhood.

Another family, another dog. Looking out of a wonderfully decorated home (even the holly on the garage is perfect), looks like a surprise good enough for Christmas Morning!

One of my all-time favourite Norman Rockwell Christmas pieces, the chaos and confusion that goes along with Christmas nearly gives the whole thing purpose! The tree, adorned with vintage lights and ornaments really gives that nostalgic feel.
