 A friend sent me this and I felt, as a good Victorian, I must share it with you. I am a Christian and I did not know of this.

Dec. 28, is the Feast of the Holy Innocents. It's in honor of the children killed by King Herod during the search for the Messiah. The Victorians called it "Little Christmas" and it was the day when the children had their parties.
 It's the perfect time for the children in the household to get in the Victorian holiday spirit by inviting friends for such old fashioned fun as hot chocolate, games of charades, card games, "dress up", hide and seek, board games, etc.

It is one of my favorite Christmas songs and I never knew what it meant. But after doing some rescearch, I found this:

            Welcome to my Victorian Home.
I surround myself with the inviting things of the past.

When you enter my home, it is truly a step back in times.

From the pictures on the walls to the doilies and lace curtains,

you get the feel of Victorian hospitality.

Let's sit by the fire place and warm ourselves with a hot cup of coco or tea. It's snowing outside in New England and it better to stay at home. All is well. Let it snow!

All done. On the twelfth day of Christmas my true love gave to me...twelve drummers drumming.
I am very impressed....eleven piper piping.
Very gracefully done. ..ten lords a leaping.
OMG, .....nine ladies dancing.
My, oh my...eight maids a milking.
I knew it was coming...Seven Swans a swimming
I am overwhelmed by the ...six geese a laying.
Now, I have ...Five Golden Rings,

I got a bird cage for the ...fore Colly birds,
I built a Hen House for the ...three French Hens.
I just adore the ...two Turtle Doves,
Do not know what to think about ...a Partridge
In the Pear Tree.

Victorians had a passion for decorating for Christmas.

I am enjoying the snow out side and the smell of my spice rum tea brewing in the tea pot.


It is only two days before Christ here in the United States. I wonder what day it will fall on in other countries and  how they will celibate it.

I wish everyone from all over the world a merry and peaceful Holiday!
From Lady Estelle and Family!
