Christmas is in a few days! If you’re looking for a last-minute travel book to give to someone that has something to do with Christmas, then check out “Rick Steves’ European Christmas.” Rick is no doubt America’s expert on Europe and for this book he, per Amazon, “teams up with co-author Valerie Griffith to explore the rich and fascinating mix of traditions—Christian, pagan, musical, and edible—that led to the Christmas festivities we enjoy today.
Rick brings home an authentic, surprising portrait of holiday celebrations in England, Norway, France, Germany, Austria, Italy, and Switzerland. Romans cook up eels, Salzburgers shoot off guns, Germans buy ‘prune people’ at markets, Norwegian kids hope to win marzipan pigs, and Parisians ice-skate on the Eiffel Tower.”
This book will no doubt motivate your loved one to make a trip to Europe next Christmas since it’s filled with thoughtful insights, vibrant photos, and more than a dozen recipes. It’s a great way to learn something new—and old—about Christmas.
