Your destination for cool facts and interesting fun facts

Cromwell saw Christmas and its celebrations as very Catholic. This combined with the twelve days of Christmas resulted in it being outlawed. It wasn’t only Christmas however. The Puritans banned all religious occasions, even the holiest days of Good Friday and Easter Sunday. The only holy days that they allowed to be observed were Sundays.

But thankfully for the population of England, Christmas was returned when the crown was restored in 1660
