 Victorian Christmas Traditions

Travel back in time to Christmas 1895 with an entertaining performance by “Victoria Yule”, who welcomes us into her parlor and shares her plans for the 1895 Christmas season. Learn the history of many Christmas traditions, passed down to her from “Grandmama and Grandpapa”. She’ll read Dickens, display toys and handmade gifts that her family will be exchanging around the Christmas tree, and in her clear soprano, sing songs of the season. Truly an audience favorite! No registration required.




Victoria Yule (a.k.a. Anne Barrett) was named Storyteller of the Year by the North of Boston Convention and Visitors Bureau and has been creating and presenting ground-breaking historical presentations on the North Shore for over 10 years. Find out more.
