The Chrismologist's Advent Calendar - Day 15

Wednesday 15 December 2010

Fed up with the same old Yuletide gifts and festivities? Then why not take a trip to yesteryear and make yours a Victorian Christmas? After all, it could be argued that our modern Christmas owes more to the Victorian era than any other period in history.

Just follow this link to the BBC's Victorian Farm page for a whole host of authentic Christmas recipes and activities dating from Queen Victoria's reign. There's everything from toy theatres and keepsake boxes to paper flowers and Wassail punch, with something new being revealed everyday.

For example, here's a recipe for making mince pies with real meat.
