Crystal: That is the standard greeting you will hear at the Great Dickens Christmas Fair. We got our Victorian on a couple weeks ago and went down to the Cow Palace for some old-fashioned, wholesome holiday fun. Pretty much everyone there was in costume, showing off their Dickensian duds, drinking hot buttered rum (which is delicious, by the way) and enjoying being in another place and time for a few hours. There were shops, shows, food, and tea at Cuthbert’s Tea Shoppe which we were lucky enough to get reservations for. Scones, tiny sandwiches and a trifle accompanied our English Breakfast tea, and after it was over they sent us off with our own little teapots!
I know we’ve been absent for awhile, but never fear. After this crazy holiday season is over, we’ll be back to our regular blogging antics. For now, Jonathan, Bella, Muffin, Moritz, Cinder, Spock and myself want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
