“Christmas Greetings From Aroostook”, a Crown of Maine Productions program, will be shown prime time again this year on December 23rd at 9:00PM and on Christmas Day at 4:00PM. From making tourtiere in The Valley to St. Lucia Buns in New Sweden, and from sleigh rides in Mapleton to the Heavenly Harpers of Houlton, this film shows the simple pleasures of a County Christmas. For more information:
“The colorful pageantry celebrated through traditional caroling and family gatherings is realistically produced and, frankly, absolutely enchanting. It’s the DVD’s magic to lift the viewer, as if on a heavenly holiday magic carpet, through snow-covered towns brightly lit with Christmas lights, watching the many traditions unfold.
The County’s beautiful landscapes, playful traditions and family celebrations warm our hearts. French and Swedish ethnic celebrations are especially touching because they highlight children.
The DVD’s homespun images reflect heartfelt family values of Christmas . . . absent the season’s heavy commercial focus. “
