Cornwall, UK, is a unique place often with its own way of doing things. In this video we travel the county to flavour the Christmas celebrations including Tom Bowcock's Eve in Mousehole, traditional Cornish carols with brass bands and choirs, poetry from Sir John Betjeman, the Cotehele Garland and the Crib at Truro cathedral. We also see the Christmas lights in Leedstown, Hayle, Camborne, Launceston, Fowey, Newlyn, Mousehole, St Ives, Penzance, Helston, Redruth, St Austell, Mylor, Angarrack (Cornwall's finest!) and Truro. We also pause to reflect on the Penlee Lifeboat Disaster and have a quick glimpse of the Mike Moyle Memorial Swim in Bude. With 320 miles of coastline Cornwall does not get snow very often (but with the lanes and hills we feel its impact when it does!), so we also take a look at some stunning still photographs of Cornwall under a blanket of white (not that Christmas 2014 was a white Christmas, but we can dream!). So warm a mince pie, give it a dollop of clotted cream, grab a mug of your favourite and pull up an armchair for the next 42 minutes and enjoy a traditional Cornish Christmas.
