Christmas was banned in America....by Christians!
It may seem like Christmas has always been celebrated in the United States, but that's not the case. In fact, the joyous religious holiday was actually banned in America for several decades – by Christians themselves.

The original war on Christmas was waged during the sixteenth and seventeenth century by Puritans, or Protestant Christians who believed that people needed strict rules to be religious and that any kind of merrymaking was sinful.


"Shocking as it sounds, followers of Jesus Christ in both America and England helped pass laws making it illegal to observe Christmas, believing it was an insult to God to honor a day associated with ancient paganism," according to "Shocked by the Bible" (Thomas Nelson Inc, 2008). "Most Americans today are unaware that Christmas was banned in Boston from 1659 to 1681."

All Christmas activities, including dancing, seasonal plays, games, singing carols, cheerful celebration – and especially drinking – were banned by the Puritan-dominated Parliament of England in 1644, with the Puritans of New England following suit. Christmas was outlawed in Boston, and the Plymouth colony made celebrating Christmas a criminal offense, according to "Once Upon a Gospel" (Twenty-Third Publications, 2008).

I agree with the puritans on this one. I don't get why the date wasn't ever changed to the fall. I understand it's purpose 1500 years ago, but trying to assimilate pagans isn't exactly a priority these days.

The Truth Your Pastor Won't Tell You About Christmas.




Hear ye the word which the LORD speaketh unto you, O house of Israel:
Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them.
For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the ax.
They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.

The difference between puritans and other nominal christians who point out that there's no scriptural support for "Christmas", is that puritans were in a position to enforce their position as law.
Today 'conscientious objectors' to celebrating "Christmas" do not object to others celebrating. Nor do they have any basis scripturaly or numerically for so doing.

as the gospel was preached to all the world, and the nations were baptized in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, according to the great commission of Christ Jesus, the pagan traditions, symbols, and stories were also baptized, which gave them new and more abundant meaning in Christ.

The King James Bible is a good translation. But, when it was first published in 1611 one reason KJ did this was to get those Puritans away from the Geneva bibles. The 1611 had inside the front cover a calender that had the Easter and Christmas, even Halloween observance marked. It's still in the 1611 edition.
