It is a well know fact that the Victorians were an odd bunch. Honestly, they were very strange. From their obsession with sewers to the colonial eccentricities. From their bizarre sports rules to the madcap mustaches. It probably all stems from the public school system – but who knows.
Anyway – I know this is a busy time of year for everyone, so I have been off searching for the best in weird and wonderful Victorian Christmas cards – just to save you the trouble. I hope you enjoy these, and that they bring some light and joy into your Christmas holidays.
Because nothing says Christmas like the robbery and murder of a frog.
I am sure the inspiration for Chewbaka started here.

If the relatives annoy you too much……
This is the way my wife makes me eat her Christmas pudding as well.
Actually this pair a quite cute – and the world needs more kittens.
This is my personal favourite. Nice motor though – it may be a tad post victorian.
And of course, after the Christmas joy, I must also wish you a very happy New Year
Be careful out there children – 2017 is the year of the giant killer hornets.
