Everything you ever wanted to know about Christmas during the Regency. Charles Dickens was a child, Jane Austen was alive, the Prince Regent was known as "Prinny" to his friends, and hardly anyone had ever heard of "Santa Claus."

Excerpt

In a Regency Christmas we see all the goodness of the old-fashioned ways of life, the quaintness of holly and candles and good, roaring fires in the hearth; the smell of wassail steaming in a large bowl over the grate, and the pungent aroma of the Christmas pudding and roast goose watering the mouth and filling the imagination. We see an emphasis on social interaction that is woefully absent today, in our world of home entertainment and personal PC's, and an excitement of the imagination and creative powers that most of us could not compete with nor aspire to. We see earnest prayer for the nation, and a reverence for the infant King that would astonish many today.

Despite the shroud placed on the holiday by earlier bans and contemporary agnosticism, Regency England did not neglect to celebrate Christmas. For the masses, it was a tempered form of celebrating, sobered by the repression of past excesses; and for many in the upper classes, it may have been just an excuse to keep up the good times. But during those turbulent years of Napoleonic threat and high-society excesses, the Season of Christmas was alive and well.

Now, as much as then, just as ancient winter solstice celebrations appealed to anyone during the dark and coldest months of the year, so Christmas still lends itself to the observance of all people, of any faith or persuasion, regardless of its Christian significance and meaning.
