The way we celebrate our Christmas has much of its roots in the Victorian era. Before this it was a small celebration not always regarded and at the beginning of the 19th century Christmas was hardly celebrated at all. Within a short space of time, however, Christmas had become the biggest annual celebration and more like how we celebrate today. .
The way we celebrate now is believed to be because of the influence of Prince Albert, Queen Victoria's husband who brought the German way of celebrating to Britain with him. Also Charles Dickens enduring tale, " A Christmas Carol " has influenced our celebrations.
