A Visit to Fezziwig’s Christmas Eve Ball


Old Fezziwig sure knew how to throw an office Christmas party. Dickens’s description of Christmas Eve in Fezziwig’s counting house included vigorous fiddling and elaborate dancing. That style of dance may belong to a bygone time, but it lives on in the annual Great Dickens Christmas Fair. In this special episode, Cathleen Myers joins Christmas Past to explain how Victorians danced their way to Christmas.
