Discover the magic of Christmas as seen through the lenses of 50 photographers who spanned the globe to capture the season in all its splendor. Christmas Around the World explores this most joyous holiday, as celebrated across six continents.
Visit the enchanting Dutch city of Gouda, where once a year the lights are darkened and the city glows with candlelight. Experience the vibrant celebration of Las Posadas in Mexico, last-minute shopping and the dizzying commotion in London and New York and the reverence and beauty of the Papal Mass in St. Peter's Basilica.
Share the truly international meaning of the holiday spirit: sacred processions in Ethiopia, Mexico, Belgium and, of course, Bethlehem; families from the countrysides of Canada and Great Britain sharing the excitement of Christmas morning; a moment's peace with the troops in Bosnia on Christmas Eve; carolers in Ireland; and a school for Santas in Alaska.
Whether capturing a timeless tradition or a slice of modern-day life, Christmas Around the World offers an often poignant, always celebratory salute to this spirited holiday season.
