What do you love most about Christmas? Is it the tree? The glittering baubles? The lights? The fragrance of greenery in the air? Or is it just the wonderful warmth of the holiday spirit - a warmth captured in such classics as Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" or Moore's "A Vision of St. Nicholas"?|
Chances are, the things you love best about Christmas have their roots in the Victorian era. The Victorians didn't invent Christmas - but they did reinvent it, restoring it to the popularity (and glitter and dazzle) that we enjoy today. From Christmas cards (invented in 1843) to A Christmas Carol, from the tree so beloved by Queen Victoria to our mince pies and plum puddings, Victorians made Christmas a holiday to look forward to all year long.
