Christmas History in Britain

A Victorian Christmas - christmas celebrations and traditions
An interesting article on the beginnings of Christmas traditions and celebrations in Britain.

No Christmas cards were sent and most people did not have holidays from work. 
A bit of light reading whilst you prepare for your Christmas celebrations and feasting !
