From tomorrow, until Christmas Eve, I will be publishing a daily blog post for my 12 Days of Criminal Christmas series.

This is a take on the twelve days of Christmas – only not quite so jolly. I will be posting a brief Christmas-related crime story or related fact each day, spanning the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.

These stories are taken from the newspapers, Old Bailey trial reports and criminal registers, and are a kind of advent calendar for those who like a bit of criminal history, with a door being opened each morning… but what will be behind each door? You’ll have to wait and see!

So if you like your festive season to be a bit darker, look out for the daily posts over the next twelve days.
