Christmas through the British Ages

London - XMas_RES_Blogartikel_888x399.jpg

Some of the celebrations we associate with Christmas today began way before Christianity developed, so that by medieval times traditions of mid-winter feasting were long established. Later the Puritans banned some festivities, but other 'holyday' pleasures still survived. It was not until the reign of Queen Victoria that many of today's customs - such as decorating fir trees - really took off.

Below we have a few snapshots of Christmas and how it developed through 10 history ages:

Medieval

Pre-Christian, northern societies used to enliven the dark days of the winter solstice with a celebration of fire, light and jollity, to create relief in the season of nature's dormancy and to hurry along the renewal of springtime. Christmas, as the celebration of the birth of Christ, was also a winter festival which gradually incorporated many pagan traditions, one of which was the burning of fires to ward away dark and evil spirits.

Elizabethan

The exhortation to 'eat, drink and be merry' epitomised Christmas in Elizabethan England. A highlight of the season was the Christmas feast, which, in those households that could afford it, culminated in a 'banqueting course' of sweet and colourful delicacies.

Restoration

'More mischief is that time committed than in all the year besides ... What dicing and carding, what eating and drinking, what banqueting and feasting is then used ... to the great dishonour of God and the impoverishing of the realm.'

So wrote the strict protestant, Philip Stubbes, in the late 16th century, expressing the Puritan view that Christmas was a dangerous excuse for excessive drinking, eating, gambling and generally bad behaviour.

Georgian and Regency

Twelfth Night, the 5th of January, has been celebrated as the end of the Christmas season since the Middle Ages. One of the most important days in the Christian calendar, Twelfth Night also marked the Feast of the Epiphany, when the three wise men, or Magi, arrived in Bethlehem to behold the Christ child.

A special Twelfth Cake, the forerunner of today's Christmas cake, was the centrepiece of the party, and a slice was given to all members of the household.

Early Victorian

For many, the Christmas tree is firmly associated with the Victorians, and with its great advocates of Christmas, Queen Victoria and her husband Prince Albert.

The custom, which originated in Germany, was introduced into England during the Georgian period. Queen Charlotte, German wife of George III, is known to have had a decorated tree for her family as early as the 1790s, and there is also a record of a tree at a children's party given by a member of Queen Caroline's court in 1821. Queen Victoria herself remembered such trees in the 1830s, happily describing potted trees placed on round tables 'hung with lights and sugar ornaments'.

So, although Prince Albert is generally given credit for introducing the Christmas tree to England, he in fact simply popularised and made fashionable an already existing custom. Victoria and Albert shared a heart-felt enthusiasm for Christmas and each year of their marriage, decorated trees provided a focal point for their domestic celebrations.

Mid Victorian

'If there is one thing inseparable from Christmas in general and the little ones' seasonable gatherings in particular, it is - a cracker. With what a delightful look of expectation they have waited for it to go "bang", and how they have screamed as they scrambled after the surprise which came in response to the explosion ...'.

The Christmas cracker was created by Tom Smith, a confectioner's apprentice    in London in the early 19th century. The Christmas cracker was inspired by the sugared almond bon-bons, wrapped in coloured tissue paper. For seven years he worked to develop the bon-bon into something more exciting, but it was not until he sat one evening in front of his fireplace that his great idea came to him. Watching the logs crackle, he imagined a bon-bon with a pop. He made a coloured paper wrapper and put in it another strip of paper impregnated with chemicals which, when rubbed, created enough friction to produce a noise. He knew that bangs excited children (and were said to frighten evil spirits) - and the mottoes and poems he inserted inside the crackers amused adults.n coloured tissue paper.

Late Victorian

'He was dressed all in fur from his head to his foot, And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot ... His eyes how they twinkled! His dimples how merry! His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry ... He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf.'

In medieval England and for centuries afterwards, the figure of Father Christmas represented the spirit of benevolence and good cheer. In the 19th century, his role changed to something more like that of the European Saint Nicholas. At about the same time, Dutch emigrants took the story of a legendary gift-bringer called 'Sinterklaas' to America, where he eventually became known as Santa Claus.

The names may be different, but there were enough similarities between all these symbolic personages to allow, by the early 20th century, Father Christmas, Santa, St Nick and others to merge. And the resulting 'right jolly old elf' is now the universally recognised symbol of Christmas.

Early 20th Century

Gifts have been exchanged at Christmas and New Year for many centuries. By the early 20th century, the availability of a huge range of gifts for both children and adults had increased dramatically. The streets of London thronged with shoppers in the days up to Christmas, and the shops were open and ablaze with a riot of light and colour even on Christmas Eve.

Children's gifts proved a particularly lucrative market, and the sheer variety of games, toys and other gifts thrilled Christmas shoppers. Some gifts were considered suitable for both sexes. These included rocking horses, wooden farmyard animals, board games, picture and adventure books, magic tricks, Noah's Arks and mechanical or stuffed animals.

World War Two

'In the present circumstances many people are asking, ought we celebrate Christmas at all? There can be no doubt that this is the very year when we should think, not less, but more about Christmas - not only as an escape from the horrors of war, but as a remembrance of nobler ideals.'

So wrote the editor of the Picture Post in December 1939. People were encouraged to spend available money, either on National Savings Certificates and War Bonds to support the war effort, or on everyday goods to support commercial traders. Where possible, this seems to have been taken to heart, and although Christmas during wartime was a greatly reduced affair, the spirit of the season remained strong.

Post-War

'Parties ... owe much of their success to the thought expended on food and drink. Even the impromptu need not take the hostess by surprise if the store cupboard is kept well-stocked with pastry shells in airtight tins and good supplies of canned and bottled delicacies.'

The image of the housewife as 'happy homemaker' was powerful in the 1950s, and at no time was she under more pressure than at Christmas. The pressure to produce not only a perfect Christmas dinner but also several days' worth of festive meals and snacks was enormous. Advice came from all quarters: 'helpful' parents and in-laws, household manuals and popular magazines.

Magazines such as Ideal Home and Good Housekeeping suggested ways to save money, short-cuts designed to enable the hostess to cut down on preparation time, and ideas for making entertaining both more exciting and easier. Despite this, playing the perfect hostess on top of other domestic duties was, it seems, a strain and the hostess often spent most of the party in the kitchen and most of the holidays exhausted!

In detail these are:

a)    Google Analytics

Engel & Völkers uses the Google Analytics web analytics service provided by Google Inc. ("Google") to analyse the use of the web pages. The information that is generated from cookies on the use of the websites are usually transmitted to a Google server in the US and stored there. Engel & Völkers uses Google Analytics exclusively with the extension "ga ('set', 'anonymizeIp', true)" to ensure that IP addresses are processed only as a shortened version and to exclude a direct reference to individuals. Google may disclose data to third parties as long as it is legally required to do so or insofar as third parties process data on behalf of Google. Google will not disclose the user's IP address in conjunction with other Google data.

Users can prevent the recording and storage of data by Google Analytics at any time by installing the Google-issued browser plug-in, which can be downloaded from the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-GB

b)    Universal Analytics

Engel & Völkers uses the universal analytics features provided by Google. With these features, Engel & Völkers can record and analyse socio-demographic information about users through a Google ID (if available) and Google-generated advertising cookies (DoubleClick). If a Google ID is available, the data controller will also record that data across all devices (for example, if users use a smartphone and a PC) to analyse traffic across all devices.

Users can prevent Google from recording and storing data at any time by installing a Google-issued browser plug-in that can be downloaded from the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-GB

c)     Google Remarketing and Retargeting

Engel & Völkers uses the Google Analytics advertising features. These allow users who have already visited the site and have shown an interest in certain products to be addressed via targeted advertising on the websites of Google partner networks. Advertising is indicated by the use of cookies that analyse user behaviour during a visit to the website and send targeted product recommendations and advertising based on users' interests.

Users can block Google Remarketing and disable Google's use of cookies for these purposes by accessing the DoubleClick opt-out page. Alternatively, users may disable the use of cookies by third parties by accessing the deactivation page of the Network Advertising Initiative.

Social Media Plug-Ins

This website uses social media plug-ins offered the by major social networks (e.g. Facebook and Twitter). When you visit the website, browser data can be transferred directly to the respective social networks, even without direct user interaction. Users acknowledge and agree that the operation of social networking plug-ins is managed directly by the company offering the respective plug-in. When users use the plug-ins via the website (e.g. log in with their access data to a social network or link their accounts), they click on the respective button (such as Facebook's "Like" or "Share" buttons) and connect with the server of this social network, which then sends the content of the plug-in directly to the user's browser.

Engel & Völkers may therefore, in accordance with the terms of use and the privacy policy of the respective social network, receive data relating to users and may add data about users' personal data already collected through their own services. If the user decides to share information with the social networks, he/she also shares data with Engel & Völkers about, for example, his/her preferences. To prevent the social networks from collecting the user's personal information, please check the relevant terms on the social networks' websites.

In particular, the website uses:

a)    Facebook

This website uses Facebook social plug-ins operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). If users access the Engel & Völkers pages via Facebook or vice versa, the user's browser will create a direct link to Facebook servers.

If the user is logged on to Facebook, Facebook can assign the user's visit to his or her Facebook account. When the user interacts with the plugins, for example by clicking on the "Like" button or posting a comment, the respective information is transferred directly from the user's browser to Facebook and stored there. The purpose and scope of the processing of data by Facebook, in addition to the respective user rights and settings options for the protection of their privacy, can be found in the Facebook Data Policy (https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/).

b)    Google "+1"

The Website uses the +1 interface of the Google Plus social network operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google"). When the user presses the +1 button, the user's browser will connect directly to Google servers. The content of the +1 interface is transmitted directly from Google to the user's browser and is integrated into the website from there. The purpose and scope of the processing of data by Google, in addition to the respective user rights and settings options for the protection of their privacy, can be found in the +1 Buttons Policy (https://developers.google.com/+/web/buttons-policy).

c)     Twitter

The website uses the features of the Twitter microblogging service offered by Twitter, Inc., 795 Folsom Street, Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA. By using the Twitter features, the websites visited by the user are linked to their Twitter account and made known to other users. During this process, data is also transferred to Twitter.

Engel & Völkers has no knowledge of the nature, content and extent of the transferred data. The user him/herself can change his/her privacy settings on Twitter in her account settings. See the Twitter Privacy Policy for more information.

To prevent the providers of the respective social media plug-ins from gathering information about users, the latter can log out of the social-media network at the beginning of their visit to the website and delete any possible cookie from their browser.
