VICTORIAN CHRISTMAS TRADITIONS
By M. Alekseev
The traditional way of opening crackers is by crossing arms and making a big circle, and then pulling both hands.
Later printed cards were made for king Henry Cole, and very sold for 1 shilling, but first company, which started making Christmas cards was Charles Goodall & sons, while first charity card was made in 1949 by Unicef.
The christmas tree was made popular by Queen Victoria's husband, who brought it from Germany. First it was decorated with edible decorations, but in 1860 glass bubbles decorations were made. Later decorations were brought from Germany.
