    “A Joyful Gift For The Heart! Ðÿž¶Â$ϸÐÿž¶”

    I delivered my parents Rick Steves European Christmas DVD, recently, simply to bring in the Christmas cheer, once more. My mother said, It was nice and very enlightening. Thank you so much, again. Weve discovered how different countries celebrate Christmas. Dad and I really enjoyed it. The choir was especially fine, only beautiful.My parents loved the entire show. When I asked my dad his thoughts. He said, Weve seen it before! … But it was nice to see, yet again. Hes so honest. And that’s great to hear.They really like Rick Steves programs a lot. They watch his shows, all the time, when he comes on TV.For the most part, they love all the DVDs that I ship home. And this was one of the favorites by far! Something to love anytime of the year, over and over. And one thing that I will point out: My conversation with my parents â$” once they watched the holiday particular â$” was filled with a great deal of pleasure and happiness. They reflected to some very happy times. Thats most significant: To drift away from a show with a fantastic feeling in mind. Thats worth millions.

    “Christmas, Done The ideal Way”

    That is a particularly favorite Rick Steves program of mine. Watching him see different towns and learning of their traditions for their Christmas celebrations was wonderful! The food, the music, the scenery, as well as the folks simply made me long for a simpler Christmas than we here in the united states have dropped into. What was painfully evident as I watched was that these people dont hurry about, frustrated and tense because they cant locate the perfect give for a loved one, or so the sexy toy that everyones scrambling over each other to get. They buy only, they gather at church to hear beautiful songs and greet one another they observe in the home in silent simplicity, with great food, great friends and family around the dining table, laughing and talking and just enjoying being together. Gifts are not piled into the ceiling; every person might only get one or 2. Rick and his family spent time with quite a few distinct families in different areas in Europe, and also the hospitality and love they were displayed was beautiful. Oh, how I wish I could experience a Christmas like this at least once! It definitely makes me rethink MY Christmas celebration and what is really important to me.

    “Thoroughly Detailed And Engaging”

    Rick Steves European Christmas is a really attractive dvd to see. Listed here are a few of the places and facts that are covered in Rick Steves European Christmas:London, England: Trafalgar Square and Somerset HouseDrobak, Norway: December 13th Holiday of Santa LuciaOslo, Norway: Norwegian Ladies ChoirParis France: Best Dressed Tree ExhibitBurgundy, France: The heritage of a winter picnic in the woods was feautured.Nurenberg,Germany: Rick provided informative specifics of Martin Luthers heritage inside this area.Salzburg, Austria: The Christmas Carol Silent Night originated in Austria.Rome and Tuscany Italy: Information was showcased on how this area makes the background of Christmas relatable in a contemporary manner in Italy.Switzerland: Scenes were shown of the beautiful Alps area, also of Rick and his family joyfully mingling with a few of the local households living in Switzerland. I also discovered the Christmas music and vocals used during the showing to be quite beautiful. A number of the countries that were visited showed groups of people singing Christmas carols together (which I presumed is a nice addition to the theme of the dvd). All the countries that were showcased in this dvd for European Christmas customs were fantastic to watch. On the other hand, both countries that really captured my attention the most for seeing Europe throughout the Christmas season are Germany and Austria. I love music, and also the fact that it plays a major portion of Germanys Christmas customs was something that I found interesting (the well known Germany composers:Bach,Beethoven, and Mozart were briefly mentioned). The characteristic of Austria also stood out for me because my husbands grandmother is from Vienna, and I also found it fascinating that the well known tune that is Silent Night originated here. This dvd is certainly worth obtaining in the event that you intend to pay a visit to any portion of Western Europe throughout the Christmas season and/or you’re interested in knowing about European Christmas traditions.
