Perry Como celebrates Christmas in Israel with visits to Bethlehem and Jerusalem. Starring Perry Como, Richard Chamberlain, and Ilanit.
Como does his traditional Christmas special in the land of the Holy. While the show is interesting and the music is beautiful, they keep a distance from the true meaning of the season. The songs they sing represent the land that Christ came from but none of the traditional ones we sing during the season. That’s what I missed the most from this show. The traditional songs that worship our Lord were missing during this episode. Although I did appreciate the representation and imagery of the Holy Land, I just missed the love toward our Lord. Como’s voice is still beautiful, and the special is still worth a watch.
