This is your one opportunity to teach a bit of history about a fascinating topic – Christmas. Christmas has a rich and weird history and as history teachers we should embrace this.
Below is a link to four of my history lessons on Christmas. One is a Puritanical Christmas for those of you who are teaching Cromwell or the Civil War. Another looks at an agricultural 18th century Christmas and requires a full staging of a Mummer’s Play. The third is a recreation of a Victorian Christmas party, with crackers, cards and decorations galore. The last is an austerity Christmas during the Blitz. Enjoy!
