Although not celebrated as much nowadays, during Victorian times and in previous centuries, Twelfth Night, the last night of the Christmas season, was one of the biggest feast days of the winter holidays, with dancing, games, performances and plenty of food and drink for everyone. In the home of Charles Dickens and his wife Catherine at 48 Doughty Street in London, the party included a theatrical show in which family and friends, including the children, dressed up and acted out scenes from Dickens's own stories, as well as popular folk tales. Mamie Dickens, one of Charles Dickens's daughters, later remembered these shows as ‘those merry, happy times’. Join this Expedition to the Charles Dickens Museum and take part in some of the family cheer.
