Lucy Worsley’s 12 Days of Tudor Christmas from PBS Distribution with an MSRP of $24.99. Lucy Worsley recreates how Christmas was celebrated during the age of Henry VIII eating, drinking, singing, dancing and partying like people did 500 years ago. Filmed at some of England's most historic and beautiful locations, she discovers the roots of some of the Christmas customs we still enjoy today and explores why other festive traditions were lost.
With the help of food historian Annie Gray, she prepares two royal feasts in the kitchens of Hampton Court Palace. Dressed as Henry himself, Lucy samples a stuffed boar's head; later, she tastes a giant forerunner of the Christmas cake. Lucy joins Tudor carol-singers to hear a festive hit written by Henry; experiences the rabble-rousing fun and chaos created by the Lord of Misrule; and enjoys the kind of spectacular entertainment staged at court. She also discovers how ordinary Tudors liked to enjoy themselves and why the holidays were such a welcome break. On each of the traditional twelve days of Christmas, Lucy reveals a different aspect of the festivities uncovering fresh insights into the Tudor mind and casting a captivating new light on Christmas itself.
My Opinion: I really enjoyed watching this 55 minute DVD as I can see what it would be like back in the day when Henry was around. I can also say what Christmas was like and what types of foods they made in the kitchen.
