About the Author

Since 1973, Rick Steves has spent about four months a year exploring Europe. His mission: to empower Americans to have European trips that are fun, affordable, and culturally broadening. Rick produces a best-selling guidebook series, a public television series, and a public radio show, and organizes small-group tours that take over 30,000 travelers to Europe annually. He does all of this with the help of more than 100 well-traveled staff members at Rick Steves' Europe in Edmonds, WA (near Seattle). When not on the road, Rick is active in his church and with advocacy groups focused on economic and social justice, drug policy reform, and ending hunger. To recharge, Rick plays piano, relaxes at his family cabin in the Cascade Mountains, and spends time with his son Andy and daughter Jackie.

This is a beautiful book that did a great job of illustrating the way Christmas is celebrated in other countries. It is a companion to a PBS special and there is also a music cd. It helped me have a broader and less materialistic view of the holiday season.

This was an enjoyable overview of the various European Christmas customs. The pictures and information are pulled from the Rick Steves' European Christmas special that aired on PBS. I really enjoyed learning about how the different countries of western Europe celebrate the holidays - the varieties of food, songs, "Santa Clauses," etc. There are several recipes included, but I didn't try them. Countries covered include England, France, Germany, Norway, Austria, Italy, and Switzerland.
