Czech Christmas

Memories of a Czech Christmas

Wednesday, Dec. 6 @ 6pm

This is a Christmas holiday program featuring traditional Czech Christmas music and dance with accordion accompaniment. During the program Helena and Mark present five traditional Czech Christmas songs within the five corresponding sections of the program. Helena explains several Czech Christmas traditions as she remembers them from her childhood and illustrates them by telling humorous stories as they occurred with her family. Some of these stories reveal surprising differences in the way Czechs celebrate Christmas in contrast to traditional American customs.
