And if the Pilgrim’s beliefs had prevailed, we’d have had none of the Christmas hoopla in the first place. They knew that Christ’s birthday was not in December and that pagan holidays had been usurped as a cover in the early days of Christianity. They expressly forbade anyone from celebrating Christmas, insisted that everyone work as if it were a regular day (unless it happened to land on Sunday which was holy), and FINED anyone who was caught celebrating. This is part of why they were called the Puritans – they wanted a PURE Christianity without it being sullied with all the pagan practices – trees, lights, gifts, eggs, bunnies, etc.
In fact, they were the originators of the so-called “War on Christmas.” Learn some real history, please.
