This beautiful program includes popular Christmas classics, such as "White Christmas," "Carol of the Bells," "Little Drummer Boy," "O Holy Night" and "Let it Snow," to embody the beautiful, pure, ethereal and angelic harmonies and voices that is Celtic Woman.

There was a very strong connection to this special from all the Celtic Woman. Christmas time being a time for family, past and present, and indeed fondest of memories and happiness.

This special was filmed in the Helix, Dublin; a venue very close to Celtic Woman's heart because it was where it all began.

The special will also feature several original pieces: "Green The Whole Year Round," a fiddle solo called "In the Bleak Midwinter," and "Christmas Pipes" with music by David Downes and lyrics from Brendan Graham.

Chloe Agnew, Lisa Kelly, Meav Ni Mhaolchatha, Orla Fallon and Mairead Nesbitt will inspire in this powerful production, hoping to cross all divides and touch all people around the globe.

Its creative concept is based on that of, the excitement and anticipation of the Christmas season, bringing families and people together, united in peace - a true celebration of life, through voices and music.
