TLC to Air Two New 'GYPSY' Specials this Month

Over the years, audiences around the world have learned that there is nothing UK Travellers like more than a good old fashion party! With the holiday season quickly approaching, what better time to bring out those decorations, vamp up that wardrobe, and have some of the most outrageous weddings and birthday celebrations we've seen thus far. This holiday season, TLC will reunite audiences with some of their favorite UK gypsies as well as introduce some new faces in not one, but two all new specials, "A VERY MERRY GYPSY CHRISTMAS" airing December 19 at 10 PM ET/PT and "MY BIG FAT GYPSY WEDDING: LUCK OF THE IRISH" premiering December 26 at 10PM PT/ET. Radio and TV personality Ellen K will once again lend her voice as narrator of both specials.

A VERY MERRY GYPSY CHRISTMAS: Christmas offers UK Travellers the ideal excuse for birthday extravaganzas and winter wonderland-themed wedding parties. In true traveller fashion, these parties are equipped with cakes as big as cars and extravagant dresses to match. However, one family of travellers gets more than they bargained for when a surprise wedding turns their family holiday in the sun into an unexpected honeymoon.

MY BIG FAT GYPSY WEDDING: LUCK OF THE IRISH: In this special episode, we take an exclusive look at the lives of Irish Travellers from both sides of the Irish Sea. From outrageous weddings, to over-the-top christenings, to spirited St. Patrick's Day festivities, these Irish Travellers know exactly how to celebrate major life events in true gypsy style.

A VERY MERRY GYPSY CHRISTMAS premieres Thursday, December 19 at 10PM ET/PT.

MY BIG FAT GYPSY WEDDING: LUCK OF THE IRISH premieres Thursday, December 26 at 10PM ET/PT.
