A Victorian Farm Christmas

Today is the first day of the annual Cheapskates Club Christmas Countdown. This is your opportunity to own your Christmas this year and enjoy the holidays knowing you won't be getting any bills in a few weeks.

I often hear from members and non-members alike just how much work Christmas is, how exhausting the cleaning, cooking, shopping and decorating are for just one day of celebration so when I found this You Tube clip I just had to share it.

If you think Christmas 2011 is going to be hard work, be grateful and thankful you weren't preparing for a Victorian Christmas - you'd really know what hard work is then!

I watched it in stages as it is very long - about 3 hours all up, but well worth the time. I hope you enjoy the clips as much as I did, it's just fascinating.
