AFTN’s two part Christmas Eve extravaganza kicks off with a show all about Christmas songs and traditions.
We get some current Whitecaps (Russell Teibert, Brett Levis, David Norman Jr, Stewart Kerr, Gordon Forrest) and past favourites (Alan Koch, Gershon Koffie) to pick the songs that they love the most at Christmas and elicit the fondest memories.
There’s a wide variety of music from classic to modern, crooner to punk, and a lot more inbetween. We also take a look at your Christmas traditions and get in the mood for Santa’s big visit.
