HOLLAND — The Jolly Snowman has arrived at Carolyn Stich Studio in downtown Holland.


For the 23rd year, local artist and business owner Carolyn Stich has created a Holland-themed holiday card, commissioned by the Holland Area Convention & Visitors Bureau, to support an organization in need.


“We wanted to create a holiday card that not only represents Carolyn’s festive spirit but also share a piece of our local culture,” said Linda Hart, Executive Director of the Visitors Bureau.


This year's card is titled "The Jolly Snowman” featuring a snowman taking a holiday selfie in front of Holland’s iconic Big Red Lighthouse. Inside, the message reads, “Warmest Wishes from Big Red’s Winter Wonderland.”


“It's that time of year and I am thrilled to have created the Christmas card again this year,” said Carolyn Stich. “I can't believe this is my 23rd year of creating this card for our city.  Isn't it fun to imagine a snowman as our winter lighthouse keeper.”


The cards can be purchased exclusively at the Holland Area Convention & Visitors Bureau (78 East 8th Street), the Carolyn Stich Studio (29 West 8th Street), Van Wieren Hardware (645 Douglas Avenue), and during the Kerstmarkt (8th Street Market Place.) Retail prices for the cards are $3 for a single card and $18 for a package of 10. Proceeds will go to the Hands of Hope.


Inquiries about the card may be directed to the Holland Area Convention & Visitors Bureau at (616) 394.0000, Monday through Friday 9 am to 5 pm, Saturday 10 am to 3 pm, Sunday 11 am to 3 pm and online anytime at or
