Early colonial settlement in Victoria corresponded with the popularity of Charles Dickens, and the beginning of many modern English Christmas traditions. Kate shows how these cultural threads affected Victoria and how D.W. Higgins, of the British Colonist gave Victoria a Dickensian twist in his charming short story “My First Christmas Dinner in Victoria, 1860”. 

Kate, a Victoria native, is an historian and the Curator for Fort Rodd Hill and Fisgard Lighthouse National Historic Sites.
