Norwegian Girls Choir
From England to Norway, Burgundy to Bavaria, and Rome to the top of the Swiss Alps, this special gets you a seat at the family feast; saves you a pew up in the lofts with the finest choirs; and hands you a rolling pin in grandma's kitchen as she labors over her best-kept holiday secrets. You'll join Romans cooking up female eels, Parisians slurping oysters, Tuscans tossing fruit cakes, and Norwegian kids winning marzipan pigs. Exploring the rich and fascinating mix of traditions — Christian, pagan, commercial, and edible —you'll see Christmas in a new light.
Rick Steves European Christmas, Wednesday at 8 p.m. on PBS 6.
