The Stuarts
Father Christmas was banned by the Puritans under Cromwell in the  mid-17th century. He went ‘underground’ along with Minced Pies,  Christmas games and the like. Occasionally secret publishers would print  Broadsheets (a sort of newspaper) with a verse about ‘Old Christmas’.  He became the personification of everything the British people held dear  about Christmas.
