Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)
    Publishers note: We have now have two volumes of A Downton Abbey Christmas. Click here for Volume I.

    I first learned of Carson's penchant for Christmas frivolity when I discovered this Greenpeace Christmas scene featuring a disheveled, despondent Santa Claus bumping around in dimly lit coal basement; a Santa in need of a rather stiff drink. Now, BCN offers a more whimsical Carson; a Carson that possibly did find that stiff drink.
Carson and the other Downton Abbey Attendants line up to serve yet another Downton Christmas. So, this is how the "1%" lives, and why do so many love to watch it. Carson stands in the middle: Above.    Click image to expand. Carson finds a whimsical spark within himself: Below.

Below, we offer a sample of the Downton Abbey traditional carol fair: Below.

The actors that play the Downton characters offer a bit of frivolity of subject as they discuss their characters so many have come to enjoy: Below.
