Victorian Style Christmas Cards

Victorian style Christmas cards are an essential part of celebrating a Victorian Christmas because the Christmas card was invented in Victorian times!

Historically, the most famous early postcard is probably the first Christmas card. This was actually a piece of art done by the painter John Callcott Horsley that a businessman commissioned to advertise his business and serve as a greeting for friends and family. That is done still to this day, as business postcards are frequently sent out at Christmas time by dentists, real estate agents or whoever wants to stay in your mind. What is interesting to me about this card is that it demonstrated an evolving consciousness that was coming about in the Victorian British public. That is the wealthy businessman is shown in the center of the card celebrating a rich Christmas dinner. He is surrounded by the poor and wretched in the shadows. I believe that was the businessman telling us to be compassionate about the poor, but I also wonder if he felt some guilt about his riches, and wondered what he could do to even the score.
