It’s New Year’s Day! Did you know that in the Victorian Era, Fathers wold invite wealthy single men into their houses to meet their daughters in hopes of marrying them off? The men would try different foods of all kinds at the house and stay for a small party before leaving.

Happy New Year from the Oshawa Community Museum!  Thank you for visiting the 2014 Victorian Advent Blog, and we hope you’ll visit again in 2015!
