Christmas Was Banned in America for a time (5/8)

Puritan Christmas Ban Image

The festival of Christmas was, at one time, banned in part of the United States of America. Be that as it may, it wasn’t San Francisco a knuckling under city committee behind the boycott, yet the province of Massachusetts – in 1659. The Puritans who got settled in New England needed nothing to do with Church of England special festivals, and this incorporated an occasion that had less to do with Christ and more to do with drunkenness and pointlessness.

The Puritan government reacted to British authorities endeavoring to keep watch over them by prohibiting the occasion, and the boycott was set up for a 22 years. It wasn’t until into the 1800s that Christmas was an occasion celebrated in enormous numbers in Boston.
