How to Celebrate a Victorian Christmas

Special Collections is celebrating the Christmas season with a new exhibit, “From Shrieks to Shenanigans: How to Celebrate a Truly Victorian Christmas.” The Victorians loved Christmas carols and tales of Father Christmas, but their festivities also included jokes, games, and ghost stories. The exhibit, which was curated by Dr. Leslee Thorne-Murphy’s English 236 students, showcases a wide variety of Christmas traditions and literature from Victorian England, from nineteenth century picture books to first editions of Charles Dickens’ Christmas stories. The exhibit will be on display throughout December.
