Ebenezer Cromwell Grinch

You’ve heard of Scrooge and the Grinch.The Puritants were the first to be down on Christmas festivities.

Jay, over at Pro Ecclesia has an amusing take on how the Puritans stole Christmas. Its in the form of a Twelfth Night poem. Enjoy!

    Yeah, they didn’t celebrate Christmas or Easter! Too Catholic, no doubt. They sound like a miserable bunch.
