    @John Locke: but not recognized at all by the founding fathers, until well after the Civil War. December 25 was designated a federal holiday by Congress and President Ulysses S. Grant in 1870 (16 Stat. 168), however this only applied to federal employees in Washington D.C. The holiday did not apply to all federal employees until 1968 5 (Pub.L. 90–363, 82 Stat. 250-251).

    He is part of the Silent Generation. Their older siblings or parents were greatest generation, these folks were kids during the depression or WWII. Per Wikipedia: born in mid 20’s to early 40’s….“Silents” are called that because many focused on their careers rather than on activism, and people in it were largely encouraged to conform with social norms. Time Magazine coined the name in a 1951 article entitled The Younger Generation, and the name has stuck ever since.
