History of Christmas

Thursday 5th December, 2.30 pm

"Christmas through the Ages"

An illustrated talk by Bethan Holdridge, Learning and Curatorial Assistant, NMS. 

Christmas as they say comes but once a year (usually these days it seems to start in about August!). Bethan traces the rituals of our modern-day Christmas from its pagan roots, the birth of Jesus, Victorian traditions and Prince Alberts introduction of the Christmas tree. …. or did he?
