Victorian Christmas

This aesthetic is influenced by British Christmas traditions from the Victorian era - Christmas stockings with oranges, Christmas crackers, sleigh rides, kissing under mistletoe, going caroling, and trees decorated with cranberries and popcorn. Most of the things associated with Christmas today - such as Santa Claus, Christmas stockings, and gift giving, date back to Victorian times.
