TRUTH !!
Oliver Cromwell was first elected as a Member of Parliament in England in
1628. After successful military campaigns against the Royalists, he had
further campaigns in Ireland and Scotland. In 1653, he was made Lord
Protector of the newly formed Commonwealth of England and remained in this
position until his death in 1658. He was an extremely religious man and
believed that feasting and revelry on Christmas Day was immoral and so
persuaded Parliament to ban it along with all celebration of the day.
