My favorite feature of our Rick Steves’ European Christmas special’s structure is how in each culture, we stop just before Christmas arrives. With this clip, Christmas is finally here — and all over Europe, people are celebrating in their own unique ways. In England, families await the arrival of Father Christmas; in Norway, friends join hands in song; in Burgundy, a toast starts the celebration feast; at the Vatican, people pack St. Peter’s to attend a glorious Midnight Mass; and, as Christmas Day dawns, a joyful chorus heralds the birth of Jesus. Merry Christmas!
