Weird Victorian Christmas Cards

You have got to see this collection of Victorian Christmas Cards.. (The headline says "10+" but there are actually more than 50.) Many of them are seriously creepy; most are just sort of like, WTH?! A few are actually really cute. I think maybe some of these were intended to be humorous and we just don't get Victorian humor.


  1. I loved the drunk birds one. Victorian humor was weird, but then again, they were the people who thought telling creepy ghost stories at Christmas was good amusement.

    I wonder if these cards were saved BECAUSE they were weird; I've seen some weird current Christmas cards. (One with R2-D2 beeping out something interpreted as "Happy Holidays," which I actually bought and sent to a few of my friends)

    1. That's a good point about cards being saved because they were weird. People would be less likely to save a card that was typical.
