In 1659, the Puritans, then in control of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, were very upset by the general revelry of the holiday, feeling that it was a "dishonour" and "offence" to the pious. Anyone found celebrating the holiday with a party, or presents, or a feast, or playing games with friends, or simply looking like they were having too much fun, would be fi ned fi ve shillings. The law was fi nally repealed in 1681 at the behest of the King of England. The Massachusetts Legislature would fi nally make Christmas a legal holiday in 1856 — 14 years before the federal government would do so. bah humbug! 1 8 2 9 3 10 11 12 13 14 21 28 29 30 31 22 23 24 25 26 27 15 16 17 18 19 20 4 5 6 7 First Day of Winter Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day Christmas Eve New Year's Eve Christmas Day LAST DAY TO ENTER TO WIN A HOLIDAY FEAST!
