A Journey into Edinburgh’s Yuletide Past

A Journey into Edinburgh’s Yuletide Past

Enjoy a glass of warm and spicy mulled wine, and a scrumptious mince pie as you explore tales of Christmas from years gone by.

Christmas today may be full of mince pies and mulled wine,  and of course the famous Edinburgh Christmas Markets… but it wasn’t always so.

Let us take you back to a time where spirits were kept high to ward off the dangers of winter. Where angels and demons coexisted in folk tales, bleakly told in the mist and snow.

17th century Christmas was quite different to the frivolity of today, and winter was not seen as a time of celebration. The need for hope was gravely necessary, as the living conditions were curiously different from the luxuries that we now take for granted.
