Everyone has their own holiday traditions, but often we don’t know how others may celebrate this time of year. Phoenix-based photographer Jesse Rieser’s curiosity about how America celebrates the holiday season led him to document families, friends and decked-out houses in his new photo series. His project called “Christmas in America” features Santas playing pool in a dive bar, Mr. and Mrs. Claus hanging out on their front lawn and some of the most ambitious decorating schemes we’ve ever seen. No matter how differently some may spend the holidays, the photos seem to represent a curious commonality between us all.
