How We Got Started

We opened Christmas in Color in 2010 because we could not find any African-American nutcrackers to add to our holiday decorations.  We started searching the Internet and could find very little in the way of holiday decorations that looked like us.  While there are many decorations depicting angels, Santas and nutcrackers with Caucasian features but there are little to no such items with other skin tones.

In order to provide our children as well as other families with the opportunity to have holiday decorations that resemble them, we decided to start a business that sells nutcrackers, angels and Santas with different skin tones.
