A Celebration of Family and friends – around the tree.

We Wish You A Merry Christmas!

I hope you enjoy the youtube I came across of  beautiful Victorian Christmas music accompanied by lovely Victorian scenes.

 

Beautiful comforting music to have playing while putting your culinary skills to work on delicious traditional foods and treats your family has come to love.

Taking time to bake with your children or grandchildren is a wonderful tradition they will also remember – and so will you. 

What are some of your family favorite Christmas foods. We also enjoyed making our own chocolate candies – peppermint bark, hazelnut bark, lavender bark, orange bark,  chewies ( that happened by accident – but turned out quite tasty), chocolate covered graham crackers, clusters – nuts, raisin and crispy clusters.

A few lovely – elegant examples of Victorian Christmas – hygee ( I’m not sure about that trendy word being applied to Victorians….. but Victorians definitely knew how to celebrate home – family, friends in a  very cozy way – throughout the year.

One thought on “We Wish You A Merry Christmas – Victorian Era Hygee

  1. This is lovely Victorian images and words, and yes, hygee. 🙂
    It has been years since I’ve made peppermint bark, but, have already made fudge and caramels are on the agenda. Our grandchildren (and their parents 🙂 ) will be coming soon and we will be making molasses cookies, frosting them with Papa (grandfather) and we will make peppermint swirl ornaments to hand on the tree, and oh-so-many more things.
    I think you might appreciate hearing that our granddaughter asked me to make her a cookbook. Joy Supreme!
