Deck the Halls and Invite All To Christmas!

 We, as the lovers of all things Victorian, I am sure that Christmas is your favorite time of the year to decorate your home in grand style. It was for Queen Victoria. She took care in making the home glow with delight, to bring her large family together. She and Princess Albert wanted every room in the palace to sing with the holiday spirit.
When you visit some of your local historic homes and museums, you will see and feel what it was like in the Christmas past.

In these rooms, the warmth comes alike and you can feel the welcome of the families that lived here..

Families would come together, from all parts, to enjoy holiday meals, spirits and drinks, enjoy music and hear stories telling of Peace and Good Will.
 
 Originally Christmas was  Christ Mass, the Christian holy-day observed on December 25th to celebrate the birth of Christ. Later it also became an important secular holiday with the focus on the family..

Customs for celebration Christmas varied from country to country, but the message of good will to all remained the same .
The Victorian Ladies Society has been an inspiration to me for many years. I want to wish all of my kindred spirit sisters, Peace and Good Health, ( around the world) this glorious time of the year.
