A Victorian Christmas

Here’s another charming photo from our local paper, the Times-Colonist. No, we don’t go round dressed like this all the time: a local theatre hosted a “Sing-Along” screening of Disney’s Mary Poppins, and this family turned up (like many) in costume for the event. By all accounts a splendid time was had.

Just at the moment here it’s Victoria at her worst: cold (but not freezing), wet (very wet today!), barely any light all day. Luckily, this doesn’t last for long in December, and we should be getting back to alternating rain and sun before long. I have some hope for snow this xmas as it did year before last, but we’ll see.
