Christmas Eve - about 1460 by Pauline Baynes

Christmas Eve, as celebrated in 1460 with children bringing in holly and the Yule Log to be lit on Christmas Day, and other joining in a last minute carol practice, while the lord of the manor sends his seasonable gifts of cheer and goodwill to the poor tenants. A holly wreath hangs from the weathercock and inside, a kissing bough is being fixed in place, the table linen, pewter and gold plate is arranged in readiness for the next day and one of the ladies carries a Twelfth Night cake which will be cut to mark the end of the Christmas celebrations

EDITORS COMMENTS
A Scene of Christmas Eve, 1460: A Traditional Celebration of the Festive Season as Depicted by Pauline Baynes In this evocative and intricately detailed print by Pauline Baynes, we are transported back in time to a quintessential English village on Christmas Eve, 1460. The scene is one of preparation and anticipation, as the community gathers together to celebrate the approaching holiday. At the center of the image, a group of children bring in armfuls of holly, their faces gleaming with excitement as they add to the already abundant wreaths adorning the thatched roofs. The holly, a symbol of the eternal life of Christ, is a reminder of the significance of the season. Elsewhere, a group of villagers huddle around, practicing carols for the upcoming festivities. Their faces are filled with joy and camaraderie, as they prepare to spread cheer and goodwill throughout the community. In the background, the lord of the manor sends out his seasonal gifts to the poor tenants, a tradition that embodies the spirit of generosity and goodwill that is at the heart of the Christmas celebrations. A holly wreath hangs from the weathercock, adding to the festive atmosphere, while inside, a kissing bough is being fixed in place. The table is set with linen, pewter, and gold plate, all in readiness for the next day's feast. Amidst the snow-covered landscape, this scene captures the essence of a social and historical tradition that has been passed down through the centuries. The warmth and cheer of the Christmas festivities are palpable, as the community comes together to mark the end of the year and the beginning of a new one.
