Let’s face it, at any other time of the year, garlands, glitter, sequins and velvet would be considered tawdry. But at Christmas, the more glitz, the better. Thank the Victorians for festive overabundance. We may not be Victorians today, but we still pay homage to Victorian excess in every ladies’ magazine at Christmas and in most American homes. Join Rudolph, Frosty, Jane and Bobbie in our one-horse open sleigh. We’ll be singing the songs we love to sing without a single stop. We hope you’ll be near our fireplace as the chestnuts go Pop, Pop, Pop!
