For the next couple weeks my public radio show (and podcast) Travel with Rick Steves will celebrate holiday traditions from around the world. Here is a short clip that explores the many different ways to say “Merry Christmas!” as a Scot.
To get all the more into the holiday spirit, I’d like to host a contest. Record a short audio file (mp3 preferably, 2 mins or less) on the theme, “A Global Holiday Season”. Tell a funny Christmas abroad story. Sing your favorite European carol. Enlighten us on a unique holiday tradition you’ve integrated into your own family’s celebration. Be creative!
Email the mp3 file to Ashley Sytsma (Ashley@ricksteves.com) by midnight on Monday the 19th, and I’ll choose my favorite three. The winners will get their story posted on my Facebook page, an autographed Rick Steves book of their choice, and the chance of their entry being aired on my Christmas 2012 radio show.
Good luck and Happy Holidays!
