The Victorian family Christmas was not simply invented by Dickens and Prince Albert; Neil Armstrong reveals how a tradition of Christmas nostalgia and sentimentality can be traced back as far as the 17th century. He then considers how the distinctive social developments of the Victorian age – consumerism and philanthropy, the growth of the print trade and women's increasing importance in staging festivities – reshaped the ways in which the season was experienced and represented.
