Summary
  • Rick Steves, America's expert on Europe, teams up with co-author Valerie Griffith to explore the rich and fascinating mix of traditions-Christian, pagan, musical, and edible- that led to the Christmas festivities we enjoy today
  • Rick brings home an authentic, surprising portrait of holiday celebrations in England, Norway, France, Germany, Austria, Italy, and Switzerland. Romans cook up eels, Salzburgers shoot off guns, Germans buy "prune people" at markets, Norwegian kids hope to win marzipan pigs, and Parisians ice-skate on the Eiffel Tower
  • With thoughtful insights, vibrant photos, and more than a dozen recipes, this great gift book captures the spirit of the season. It's a delightful way to learn something new-and old-about Christmas. Book jacket
