Many of our beloved Christmas traditions began in Austria, Germany and Alsace, areas where the Advent season is a major time of celebration. After two family Christmases in Salzburg when their daughter Kelly was young, Kathy and Charley returned the last five years to research and then lead The European Christmas Experience. This trip includes four nights each in Salzburg, Munich, and Colmar (in Alsace).
In this session Kathy will share the European origins of special Christmas traditions and how this festive season is celebrated today in Germany, Austria and Alsace. She'll talk about several very different Christmas markets and discuss other highlights of the season. We promise this session will get you in the Christmas spirit!
Note: We'll discuss some experiences on our Christmas tour, but this is not intended as an overview of our Christmas tour.
