There are many Victorian Christmas music CD's for that original mood .. and reading up on the various traditional Victorian Crafts brings it home just how resourceful and inventive the victorian ladies were .. much pride was laid upon a festive decorated house and preparations for making christmas decorations began many months before.

After Christmas they would be careful wrapped again for the next holiday season

Music was always a big part of a Victorian Christmas , from Carol Singing to piano music around the living room , some Sentiments and Sounds of the Victorian Christmas era can be fun to accompany the festive season.
