A Victorian Christmas Carol

A Victorian Christmas Carol

Now Available from Karen's Kinkade Art Store!

 

Christmas caroling is one of the most quaint Christmas pastimes. The joy of Christmas caroling started in England, where groups of people would go from house to house singing songs. They were usually rewarded with money, food or drink. Money collected was given to charity, in keeping with the spirit of the season. Thomas Kinkade has brought this tradition to life again in his painting A Victorian Christmas Carol. On a quaint, snow-covered street, men, women and children are all dressed up and socializing. A sleigh, pulling a man dressed like Santa Claus, is pulling down the street. At the end, we see a warm, inviting church, lit up with the splendor of the holiday. Read what Thomas Kinkade wrote about this painting: 

"My first painting in the Old Time Christmas Collection, A Victorian Christmas Carol, honors this joyous season. Period characters populate this quaint Victorian neighborhood, each enjoying the day with a merry chat, a peaceful stroll, a Yuletide carol, a stolen kiss under the mistletoe, a sleigh ride with Santa and, of course, a joyful snowball fight is in the making! Look closely you might even find a few characters from stories of Christmas past. I hope that my painting, A Victorian Christmas Carol, fills both your heart and your home with that same holiday cheer. And as only Tiny Tim can say, “May God bless us, everyone!!!'"
