Rick Steves' European Christmas Previous Broadcasts

KQED 9: Tue, Dec 14, 2010 -- 10:00 PM

After producing a hundred of his travel shows, Rick Steves and his crew finally celebrated Christmas in Europe. Rick and his gang brought home a vivid and intimate look at how seven diverse cultures celebrate Christmas. From England to Norway, Burgundy to Bavaria, and Rome to the top of the Swiss Alps, this special gets you down on the carpet with wide-eyed children, up in the loft with the finest choirs, and into the kitchen with grandma and all her secrets. You'll experience traditional European Christmas like never before: from flaming puddings and minced pies in jolly old England to angelic girls' choirs sporting flickering crowns of candles in Olso. From grandpa reading the Bible high in Switzerland to the pope in a jam-packed St. Peter's basilica for midnight Mass. Above all, you'll be treated to traditional European holiday music -- unfamiliar to most American ears -- performed by families and choirs in their homes, chapels and cathedrals.
