EU and UK finally reach a Brexit deal

SHARE EU and UK finally reach a Brexit deal

After five years of negotiation, consternation and debate, the EU and the UK have finally reached a Brexit trade deal. And for the holiday season, we bring you an hour devoted to literature, music and food — like the obsessive ritual of making British Christmas pudding — along with some of our favorite stories from 2020. Also, reporters in Greece, Israel and Mexico tell us how people there celebrate the holidays during such bleak times.
