TRANSCRIPT

LUCY WORSLEY: If you wind back the clock five hundred years,

what would a Tudor Christmas look like?

I'm going back to the reign of Henry VIII

to recreate Christmas customs not seen for centuries -

I think I've got the hang of it...

Twelve days of feasting and drinking,

singing and dancing,

praying, playing, and partying!

Those are the 12 Days of Christmas!

Wednesday, December 25th
