We all have formed in our minds a picture of a perfect early New England Christmas.  This image might include families decorating an evergreen tree, bedecking their houses with garlands, attending church services, giving gifts, and Santa Claus.  It is amazing how many of us have these elements in our mental image of this festive time of the year. The reality of Christmas in early New England may be disappointing to some and unbelievable to many, but the historical actuality of the celebration of Christmas – or lack thereof – is an interesting tale and one that blends the heritage and spirit of many cultures and many lands.
