Summary

Summary

The Christmas season was a highlight of the country house calendar. Social barriers between master and servant were loosened, family intrigues stalked the dinner table, romantic hopes were dashed or realized, and the multi-layered community which lived on and around the great estate drew together to reanact the annual cycle of custom and tradition.
