Mark and Helena will present their Christmas holiday program, "Memories of Czech Christmas",  a one hour performance 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.

This program is interactive with the audience.  Helena pauses after explaining each particular tradition and allows the audience to ask questions.  This can lead to discussions.
