A Victorian Christmas

So today is the first day of advent and as a consequence I pressume that most of you reading this will have the residue of your first advent chocolate on your lips and already preparring various christmas eggnog and whisky based cooking activities.

For those that would like to take christmas to an even more extreme and victorian level, I present you the BBC's victorian christmas site.


Various Victorian crafts are explored and video'd for your viewing pleasure over the few weeks leading up to christmas. On a student budget and need a present for a family member? Get some scissors and glue and make a toy theatre. A culinery explorer? Victorian christmas pudd is yours to try.

Who said history isn't fun...
