From writing letters to Santa Claus to reading A Christmas Carol and baking gingerbread men, there are several holiday traditions that, for many of us, are important to celebrating the winter holidays. You might be surprised to learn that some of these traditions were popularized in the 19th century.
The Camron-Stanford House is pleased to present A Very Victorian Christmas. We invite you to explore how different people in the United States celebrated the festive season throughout the 19th century, and learn about the history of a few of your most treasured holiday traditions.
