The New Canaan Historical Society recently hosted two children's workshops this holiday season, comparing and contrasting a Colonial Christmas, which included making butter and soap, and a Victorian Christmas.

Children learned about Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, they made traditional English Christmas Crackers (or "poppers"), played games like "Hunt the Slipper" and made ornaments.
