698 Ready for Christmas Near and Far; Wassailing
Manage episode 349967120 series 1000105
In the first of two holiday-themed shows, Rick's guests recall their childhood Christmases in the Netherlands, Italy, and New Mexico. Then more friends join us to describe what you're likely to find this time of year in Austria, Australia, Japan...and Antarctica. Plus, we'll hear about how the English tradition of "wassailing" developed as a way to guarantee a good apple harvest — or at least an occasion to enjoy a warm drink with neighbors.For more information on Travel with Rick Steves - including episode descriptions, program archives and related details - visit www.ricksteves.com.
