 How Queen Victoria changed Christmas, 

Christmas was not always a time for children. There were games and parties and dances for the adults, but children were meant to be “seen and not heard.” When Queen Victoria came to the throne and started to indulge her children and include them in Christmas celebrations, a change started to occur all over Britain and North America. Families everywhere started to change the focus of Christmas from that of an adult celebration to one of a family celebration.
