DESCRIPTION

At the beginning 19th century Christmas was barely celebrated but by the end of the century it had become the biggest annual celebration, as we know it today.

The Victorians didn’t invent Christmas – but they did manage to define it.

It was a time when most of the traditions that now define Christmas for us sprung into life and once the founding of festive activities started, it proved unstoppable.

How will it work?

Your Zoom host will admit you into the main room, where we can have a quick chat whilst we wait for late arrivals.

At 18.40pm, Lits will begin his introduction, lasting approximately 30 minutes. All attendees will be muted.

At the end of the introduction, there will be an opportunity to discuss the talk with Lits and everyone else, ask questions and socialise. Attendees will be unmuted to do so.

A few minutes before the end, the host will bring everyone together and mute everyone again for closing announcements, questions and/or suggestions.

When should I join?

Please join as promptly as possible in order to hear Lits's introduction. However, latecomers are still welcome and will be added to a table.
