The Spirit of Christmas Past

Book - 1996
Rate this:
It is hard to imagine that before the Victorian revival of Christmas there were no Christmas trees, no card-giving, few presents, no cakes, no sumptuous meals - in fact the occasion was hardly celebrated at all. This beautifully illustrated book takes a look at Christmas and how it has evolved. The ancient origins of the festival are explored as are the many customs and traditions. The part of the Victorians in shaping our Christmas is described in detail, including holiday decorations, food, drink, and games.
