Old Fezziwig sure knew how to throw an office Christmas party. Dickens’s description of Christmas Eve in Fezziwig’s counting house included vigorous fiddling and elaborate dancing.

In this special episode, Cathleen Myers joins Christmas Past to explain how Victorians danced their way to Christmas.
