A Victorian Christmas at Stephens


Stephens College has an annual Victorian Christmas celebration. We have wanted to go for ages but last night was the first time we could go. The students dress in Victorian garb and greeted us at the door. The walkway was lined with luminaries and, it was lightly snowing! We were seated at a small table for four that was decorated with a candle and teacups.

The rest of the evening was a variety of music. The choir sang, there were solos and duets on the violin and flute, and inbetween, small talk was made by the cast. We were served wassail and figgy pudding!

It was a fun night, no snow stuck to the ground so getting home was a breeze!


  1. Sounds like a beautiful evening, Terri!

  3. Sounds like a perfect evening to me:-) I so love attending events like that and I can well imagine how beautiful it all was. Glad you were able to go this year. It's like the concert I went to on Sunday, it was their 29th year and yet the first time I ever attended!! xoxo

  4. Hi Terri, What a treat to enjoy a Victorian Christmas evening! Your photos that you have shared are wonderful. Figgy pudding...can't say that I have ever tasted that!

  5. Oh, what fun!


  6. I'll bet that was a very pleasant way to spend an evening.

    Glad you were able to do it and that the roads were ok.

  7. We love events like this! That's why it's so important not to overplan during the holidays - to leave time to savor the season! It goes by WAY too quickly!

    Sending hugs!

  8. Wow, this sounds like so much fun! And you look wonderful!


Comments are the new hugs!
