I know it is to soon to think about Christmas, but it is my favorite time of the year. I go back in time and imagine a true Victorian Christmas. Victorians loved this time to decorate their homes, entertain the family, go for a ride in the buggy to visit the neighbors. Best of all was the carolers at the door.
This Saturday on November 26th, I went to the small town of Pascoeg, Rhode Island, where they brought those moment of Christmas past back to life. It felt like a place right out of a Charles Dickens story.
My friends and I dressed the part and went for a Victorian stroll though the streets.
The shops where all decorated and ready for the visitors to stop by and do their Christmas shopping..
There was even a puppet show going on in the street for the children to see.
My favoirte was the merry Dickens carolers. This really put me in the Christmas spirit.
