"Kris Kringle, that jolly little fellow with his eight tiny reindeer and sleighful of toys, must have had some Christmas trees tied on the back of his sleigh, for he would not have had the heart to leave them behind when he knew how much the girls and boys enjoy the sparkling, glittering trees all laden with holiday gifts."

"Sometimes the young people do not wait for Santa Claus to bring the tree, but hide away to the woods and secure one themselves days before Christmas, that they may have the sport of decorating it with their pretty home-made Christmas decorations to make; and the girls and boys are wise, for it is always best, if possible, to  cut one's own Christmas tree. They can bind the branches to the trunk to keep them from breaking, tie the tree on a sled or a hand wagon, and drag the fascinating burden home, as in olden times the people with merry laughter and song were wont to bring home the famous Yule log. In whatever way the tree is procured, make your own ornaments and decorate the tree with the aid of brothers and sisters or young friends."

 

Victorian Xmas Ornaments

Victorian Christmas Ornament"Most of the ideas given are for a daytime Christmas tree where lights are not used. If candles are employed, no paper festoons can be on the tree. But why use lights? They are always dangerous, and the tree can be so brilliant without them."

So to begin, pick an ornament and gather the supplies to create the magic of a Victorian Christmas!
