Blogmas 2016 …. A Victorian Christmas.
I love Christmas and have many happy memories of Christmas in the past…..I miss Christmas in the Uk… I suppose part of it is that it is not celebrated here so even though some of the larger stores aimed at the expat market do decorate and have a tree…it falls short…. you don’t get the atmosphere and it is the atmosphere which makes everything isn’t it?
The cold, maybe snow, the Carol Concerts, the parties,just a general joyous feeling , christmas is everywhere you look at every twist and turn.
So I have been thinking a lot….dangerous I know…ha ha
About what Christmas would have been like in Victorian Times….Cooking was far more ornate and so were the dresses of the ladies..so beautiful.
…muffled up and carriages to ride in.. it just conjours up a warm feeling of Christmas.
Chestnuts cooked over hot coals…
