It's day 12! Humour was often evident in Victorian Christmas cards but not always of a kind that we can appreciate today. Here is a prime example, with its joyously worded greeting at odds with the violent scene depicted on the card!

It's day 10 of our Victorian calendar. Read into this what you will!? I suspect the monkey thinks the big juicy fly will make a much more appetising meal than the limp lettuce leaf seen strewn across the floor, or is he wishing the fly Merry Christmas?
