Christmas in Old Victoria
Victoria, BC is one of the most historic cities on Canada’s West Coast. For the people of Victoria, from the Lekwungen to the fur traders and gold miners who would eventually arrive, the time around the Winter Solstice has always had a special meaning. Learn about the drunken Christmas brawls during the early days of Fort Victoria, the “daft days” perpetrated by Scottish Settlers at Craigflower Farm, the church services attended by homesick men during the Gold Rush and more.
