William Winstanley - The Man who saved Christmas
William Winstanley (1628-1698) was an East Anglian, a farmer, journalist and historian - and most of all a man who would not submit to the strictures of the Puritan regime of Oliver Cromwell. His family kept their traditional Christmas and his writings on Yuletide and its customs did more than anything else to revive interest in those customs after the Restoration. Author Alison Barnes illustrates how William Winstanley is the man responsible for the way we celebrate Christmas today.
