Publisher Comments:

From England to Norway, Burgundy to Bavaria, and Rome to the top of the Swiss Alps, Rick Steves European Christmas Blu-Ray gets you a seat at the family feast, up in the loft with the finest choirs, and into the kitchen with grandma and her best-kept holiday secrets.

After producing a hundred travel shows, Rick Steves and his public television crew finally went to Europe for Christmas. And the cameras were rolling. As only they can, Rick and his gang brought home a vivid and authentic portrait of how Europeans celebrate the holiday. This Blu-Ray includes:

• 14 complete live concert performances of music

• 2004 Midnight Mass at St. Peters Basilica (Pope John Paul II)

• Precepi Montage

• Christkind Interview by Rick Steves

• A slide show of images from the television prodictions

The Christmas we know today is a rich and fascinating mix of traditions that came over on the boat—an ancient celebration with pre-Christian roots. From yule logs to mistletoe, from singing shepherds to the split personalities of Santa, from traditional recipes to the top ten ways to celebrate in Paris, youll learn something new—or old—about Christmas.
