THURSDAY December 26th at 7pm: VICTORIAN CHRISTMAS GHOST STORIES
CHRISTMAS GHOST STORIES
"Move nearer the fire and hearken!"
Reading a ghost story on Christmas Eve was once as much a part of traditional Christmas celebrations as turkey, eggnog, and Santa Claus.
The Christmas ghost story; elaborate descriptions of the food and drink, games, and bedclothes of the time. And the contrast between the Victorian home’s cheery interior and the piercing cold of the snow, ice, and terrors outside.
