It depends on what class. Poor Victorian children lived in the slums with their parents and they were lucky to make it to the age of 5. Rich Victorian children lived in fine manor houses etc with maids to look after them.
I don't know who started victoria day or when did victoria day started but what I do know is that victoria day is on may 21 each year. we celebrate and eat lots of cheesy chews just like Stilton, Geronimo Stilton. My friend Danny likes cheese!
