Merry Christmas to all, here’s what the Puritans thought about Christmas:

“The Puritans, known for their religious fervor, hated Christmas. A law was passed in 1659 outlawing the celebration of Christmas, and a five-shilling fine was levied against anyone ‘found observing, by abstinence from labor, feasting or any other way, any such days as Christmas day.’ They considered Christmas ‘an extreme forgetfulness of Christ, by giving liberty to carnal and sensual delights’.”

All the more reason to be Anglican, we celebrate the Holy Feast of the incarnation.
