Christmas

In 1843, Henry Cole, the V&A’s founding director, sent the world’s first Christmas card. The Museum holds in its collections a large number of Christmas-related items, including cards, toys, books, church carvings, stained glass and decorations. The Museum also regularly commissions Christmas trees from well-known designers.
