A day of perfect bliss

Victorian children looked forward to the Christmas party season with great delight.

A thrilling ride in horse and trap took them through the sparkling white snow to a friend’s house for games, dancing or for something very special - a Fancy Dress Ball.

And what to wear at a Fancy Ball was often a question of momentous interest.

With the last dance of the last ball of the season, the Victorian Christmas has come and gone - and a most marvellous Christmas it has been !
