The Downtown Holiday Market has become a winter tradition in Washington.

We pay homage to traditions and rituals of all kinds this week. We'll visit a park sacred to Native Americans, and talk with a local woman who's hoping to give the park new prominence. We'll swing by a Prince George's County church that's taking the concept of a Christmas pageant to a whole new level. And we'll go inside a weekly event known as the "Captain's Coffee," and hear how it's bringing together houseboat residents on the D.C. waterfront.
