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!
