Christmas comes on the 25th of December. Due to Queen Victoria and her husband Prince Albert the United Kingdom started celebrating what we know as “traditional British Christmas”. Before Queen Victoria British Christmas was based on old pagan traditions and was mainly for adults.
They say the first Christmas tree appeared in Germany in 1521. And it was Prince Albert who brought it to Britain. In 1841 Queen Victoria and Prince Albert had a lighted tree at Windsor Castle.
Silent Night, Holy Night! All is calm, all is bright. Round the Virgin Mother and Child. Holy infant so tender and mind, Sleep in heavenly peace, Sleep in heavenly peace.
