We probably should have made more of these Christmas posts before, rather than after Christmas, but you’re all still in the Christmas spirit, right?
This documentary is as holly-jolly as it gets.
From England to Norway, Burgundy to Bavaria, and Rome to the top of the Swiss Alps, Rick Steves’ European Christmas 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.
How long until it will be illegal to make such films, as even suggesting that White people posses a culture at all will be an imprisonable offense?
I’m guessing not too long.
