Christmas History Lesson

December 15, 2005

Here is a short but important history lesson about Christmas from the Holier Than Thou: When the Christian Right Goes Wrong blog.

It reminds us that the Puritans ignored Christmas, that it was illegal in the colony of Massachusetts to celebrate it, and it was not even considered a holy day until the mid-1800s. So much for the claims of those fighting to "save" Christmas that those "taking Christ out of Christmas" are going against our nation's history!
