On a spring journey through Spain, Slovenia, Italy, and Greece, Rick celebrates the 2,000-year-old story of Easter in a variety of cultures, capturing the emotion of this special time as the Passion of Christ unfolds during Holy Week. Rick shows us Andalusians carrying parade floats, Greek priests tossing showers of flower petals, and villagers blessing olive branches, plus feasting, fireworks, and more. Exploring a rich and fascinating mix of traditions — from its pagan roots to its glorious finale — this program sheds new light on this timeless holiday.
