regency skatingFind out about the way in which Christmas traditions evolved during the late eighteenth century as well as about the new innovations of the period before Charles Dickens and the Victorians got their hands on the celebrations.  Christmas was slightly different – not so child orientated- but there were still family festivities and lots of merriment both at home and abroad for soldiers serving in the Napoleonic Wars.
