Victorian Christmas Angels

Victorian Christmas angels are one of the biggest gifts that the Victorians brought us to brighten up our own holidays.

Victorians loved using frilly angels in Christmas decor.

The upper-class Victorian housewife would decorate for every holiday, especially Christmas!

The Victorian Christmas angels would be used used as Christmas tree ornaments. They could be  Christmas tree toppers and in figurines.

Angels were used in Victorian times in many different ways. You would see angels used everywhere in the home – even in  in furniture!

You’d find  angels with harps and veils in many different places in a Victorian home.

In the Victorian era, a concept of “the angel of the house” was popular. This referred to the concept of a woman submitting herself willingly to her marriage partner. You don’t have to believe that though to love the Victorian angels.

I have decided instead to feature Victorian style artwork pertaining to angels.

Thomas Kinkade Victorian Christmas jigsaw puzzles

Thomas Kinkade Victorian Christmas jigsaw puzzles are some of my favorites. Thomas Kinkade was an American painter. However, the sweetness of the Victorian Christmas fit in beautifully with his theme.

Somehow his paintings seem to show actual light, like every window is glowing with lanterns. Thomas Kinkade was known as  “the painter of light.”

Kinkade was certainly not a Victorian, but the romanticism of the Victorian Christmas times captured his imagination. He loved scenes that showed family and love, as well as reverence.  These British winter holiday scenes shine with the Kinkade glow.

Thomas Kinkade Victorian Christmas jigsaw puzzles is a great family activity.

The perfect Victorian Christmas Time

I can imagine the perfect Victorian Christmas. First of all, there would be the exchange of presents. In addition, the children would play at Christmas crafts. Probably their favorite would be  opening their crackers.    Furthermore the family would spend some time together enjoying each other, and maybe saying grace. Finally  there would be the fabulous Christmas feast.

Last  of all the family would join together and put together a puzzle.

Victorians could put together jigsaw puzzles, although they would not look like the Thomas Kinkade Victorian Christmas Jigsaw Puzzles. The earliest jigssaw puzzles were wooden, and usually of maps. It is likely that only the wealthy and perhaps the royalty would have the puzzles.

But when families could get them, they would. Because the time putting together jigsaw puzzles – like these Thomas Kinkade Victorian Christmas Jigsaw Puzzles makes a beautiful family time.
