I don’t know about y’all, but the last time I felt Christmas cheer was when I watched “Christmas at Downton Abbey,” a holiday special episode of the popular British period drama’s second season. Aside from the fact that it was during that episode that Matthew finally proposed to Mary, there’s something about the old British grandeur in period pieces that just makes Christmas feel a little more authentic. Saturday, the United Court of the Pikes Peak Empire invites you to create your own period-piece atmosphere, with a Victorian-themed celebration of the holiday. Of course, being UCPPE, this means fancy gowns, humor, booze, fun and of course drag performances by some of our local favorite kings and queens. Your hosts will be UCPPE’s Dowager Empress XXIV, Lauren Ashley, and “The Lady of the ‘80s” Andrea Starz, who we assume will dress for the 1880s rather than the 1980s for this special event. In addition to the show and a potluck buffet, they’ll offer silent and live auctions to benefit the UCPPE Regent Fund, which supports area nonprofits.
