Are you looking for something new to do this Christmas? Perhaps your circumstances might call for a change. Perhaps you are looking at not spending the holidays at home. Whatever reason you may have for wanting to do something different this Christmas, here is one good idea – visit The Great Dickens Christmas Fair.
It is being held in San Francisco so if you are near the area, you are in luck. The Great Dickens Fair brings the past to life:
The Great Dickens Christmas Fair: A holiday adventure into Victorian London, partying with hundreds of costumed players in 90,000+ square feet of theatrically-lit music halls, pubs, dance parties and Christmas shops on winding lanes. It’s a twilight evening in Charles Dickens’ London Town – a city filled with lively and colorful characters from both literature and history. Enticing aromas of roasted chestnuts and hearty foods fill the air.
Cries of street vendors hawking their wares ring out above the bustling crowd. Dozens of lamplit shops are filled to overflowing with Christmas presents. New this year: each patron receives a Victorian name, a Passport to the Past, and tokens for prizes if the Timegame is well played. And it’s all in a Holiday Humor!
Even if you are not normally into Victorian stuff, I think that the idea of spending a Christmas night in Victorian London would be quite interesting. The fair is open every weekend till the 21st of December from 11 in the morning to 7 in the evening. Tickets are $22 for adults, with discounts for seniors, military, and children.
