The Years (plural) Without A Christmas

"Of christmas it is indulgence. Christmas has long been time to break out the good booze and gorge yourself on sweet desserts made with expensive imported spices. To say nothing of the gift giving you know who didn't like all of those things oliver cromwell when he and his puritan forces took over england in sixteen forty five. They vowed to do away with decadence and went full. Alan rickman sheriff of nottingham and cancelled. Christmas shops were ordered to stay open on december. Twenty fifth and soldiers patrolled the streets with orders to seize any and all food. They found being prepared for a feast. It would take no less than restoring a king to the throne in this case. Charles the second to get christmas back. Puritans weren't exclusive to their native england and a bunch of them thought the spoiled beauty of the new world could really use some severe self-denial the puritans we refer to as pilgrims and about whom many myths were dispelled in. Our recent thanksgiving episode were even more orthodox in their puritanism than cromwell bonus fact that parallels the split between the amish and the mennonites. The amish broke off because the mennonites weren't strict enough since the puritans were among the first europeans to establish themselves in what would become america celebrating. Christmas was not a thing. It wasn't simply that they didn't celebrate it themselves. They didn't want anyone to celebrate the holiday. They had dubbed fools tied as an england shops and schools were expected to be open though. Interestingly churches were ordered to be closed on christmas one of the two days a year when even the laziest christian can be bothered to turn up. It was more than the frivolity and gluttony that they minded they viewed it as not properly christian. Puritans followed the bible very strictly. If something wasn't in the bible like taking any day for rest other than a sunday it might as well have come straight from the devil that would include the idea of resting on the day that jesus was born but since the bible also doesn't specify what day that is no big loss s historian stephen this inbound explains puritans were fond of saying that if god had intended for the anniversary of the city to be observed he would surely have given some indication as to when that anniversary occurred. The date of december twenty fifth wasn't officially the mass of christ until the fourth century. When pope julius the first subsumed the roman festival of saturnalia into a christian celebration. Which gave us some of our most enduring traditions like holly in candles. Puritans were also not keen on the papacy so they didn't care if it was official for twenty two years from sixteen fifty nine to sixteen eighty one. The celebration of christmas was actually outlawed. In the massachusetts bay colony the law went into effect one year after the brits had gotten their christmas restored by well the restoration the laws stated that in order to prevent disorders to the great dishonour of god and offensive others. Anyone found celebrating the holiday. Either by forbearing of labor feasting or any other way would be find a hefty five shillings on one christmas day. Plymouth governor william bradford noticed some people playing an old equivalent of baseball and ordered them all to get back to work. Now would be an appropriate time. If i make an aside and i may because it's my show to remind people that religious freedom is when you say that's against my religion. I can't do it but religious freedom does not mean that's against my religion. You can't do it. Even after the ban on christmas was repealed in sixteen. Eighty one staunch puritans still fought against christmas celebrations for decades in sixteen eighty six. The newly appointed governor of the dominion of new england closed shops on christmas day and sponsored a holiday service. This idea was unpopular enough with enough people. That soldiers had to accompany the governor to church. Those sorts of protests of christmas would continue but their focus would shift from celebrating at all to the way in which it was celebrated and what a way it was. We aren't talking about a family sing. Song and three helpings of pie or even old timey whistling colonial celebrations of christmas looked more like mardi gras mashed with halloween. If it took place during spring break drunken revellers take to the streets wearing scary masks or dressed like animals singing boisterously and demanding food drink and money under threat of violence ad in the ancient pagan roots of those practices. And we see that. The puritans had quite a lot to get their noses out of joint about boston minister. Cotton mather preached to his congregation more than thirty years. After the law's repeal the feast of christ's nativity is spent in reveling dicing carding masking. And in all licentious liberty by mad mirth by long eating by hard-drinking i- lewd gaming await. Those are meant to be bad things. After the american revolution or the kerfuffle of ungrateful colonials as the british call at surreal thing. You don't have to google it. Just trust me. English customs fell out of favor and since celebrating. Christmas had come over from england. It began to peter out to. It wasn't even declared a federal holiday until after the civil war in eighteen seventy. It was around that time that americans. Reinvented christmas and it changed from a raucous pagan carnival. Holiday into a family centered. Day of nostalgia nostalgia used to be considered a mental illness by the way. But that's a story for another day. So why the shift. The early nineteenth century was a period of class conflict high employment and of rioting by the lower classes that tended to come to a head around christmastime one such christmas riot in eighteen twenty eight moved the newark city council to institute. The city's first police force in response. This motivated certain members of the upper class to change the way. People viewed christmas literary figures like washington irving the man who helped co defy the until recently launched view of christopher columbus in eighteen nineteen. Urban wrote the sketch book of geoffrey crayon gent a series of stories about the celebration of christmas in an english manor house wherein the rich person invites pour into his home and the two classes of people get along swimmingly and celebrate with quote ancient customs. As nice as that is it's worth noting that the details of the books revelry don't parallel any celebration. We know of irving actually attending and seems to have been completely imagined. It's the season of giving and you

"Done for own Michael Medved Show up in this season of thanksgiving. We'll go to Michael for historical look at the separatists the pilgrims, the Puritans in their Stoorikhel context that gave rise to thanksgiving. What is it about the pilgrims? We all know something about them. Everybody's studied the thanksgiving holiday, which focuses on the pilgrims. But why do we pay so much attention to them? I mean, their situation is about as dramatic as it could be no question about that. And they were remarkable people to think about it, the colony. They started Plymouth. It really never got to be very significant got swallowed up in the much larger colony of Massachusetts in sixteen ninety one. They were always viewed as irrelevant weird different. They didn't start a college. The NASA -chusetts colony did that college was called Harvard. The pilgrims never became rich never became particularly influential. And in fact, William Bradford who wrote so much about the founding of Plymouth colony in this adventure going across the sea in the Mayflower and landing some say on Plymouth rock William Bradford at the end of his life fought everything they had done had been a failure. So why do we spend so much time on these people? They weren't the first to come to North America. There had been a colony at Jamestown planted some thirteen years before remember that colony with captain John Smith and Pocahontas and what about those Puritans nearby. We tend to confuse pilgrims and Puritans what were the differences. Why do the Puritans who were so much more numerous so much more successful and influential tend to get such a bad reputation in the history books, certainly in popular culture, whereas the pilgrims. We think of as pretty wonderful were they what about their experience makes them so worthy of attention. These are some of the questions that I want to deal with today the holiday of thanksgiving as being attacked recently because supposedly it represents all kinds of evil deeds involving evil Europeans who did nothing but decimate an abused native American. And some people have even suggested that the holiday of thanksgiving ought to become a feast of penance to native Americans does that make sense. Or is there a deeper reason and a more important message that we ought to take from the holiday all of that we want to cover on a very special show today looking at the real story behind thanksgiving and behind the pilgrims. First of all you've got to understand something about what was going on an England at the time England had just a few years before emerged from a dire threat that most Englishmen particularly Protestant Englishman thought might represent the end of their world that was the Spanish armada that was fifteen eighth Spain the big power on earth, and all of a sudden through miraculous intervention a lot of it involving very turbulent and unpredictable sees the Spaniards defeated the English are riding high. Hi. But meanwhile, all kinds of disputes break out about the English church. The church of England and those disputes have to do with a lot of people in England feeling that the church was uncomfortable close to what they called potpourri Catholicism. Remember the church of England had been created. By Henry, the eighth in his dispute that's another whole story. But the idea being that for lots and lots of people in the British Isles the church of England was too involved with pomp with bishops who wore mitre hats was too similar to Catholicism. Now, some of the people who wanted to purify the church from within who wanted to change the church of England and to bring it more in line with traditional Calvinism with the more radical forms of Lutheran reformation those people became known as Puritans. That was kind of insult thrown at them initially. They're Puritans meaning not that they are so pure themselves or claim to be so pure, but that they want to purify the church, then there was another group a much smaller group known as separatists how small while the separatists that are important to us that group that later became known as the pilgrim's the screw be separatists. Do you know that that historians say that this entire group of people this entire movement within England never numbered more than about a thousand people and yet they're impact on the American imagination. If not on American history has been absolutely phenomenal. Most people learned in school something about how the separatists who they lived up in inscribing manner, which is in Nottinghamshire. Remember, the sheriff of Nottingham Sherwood forest, Robin Hood, it's in that part of England, and they weren't particularly wealthy. They were middle-class people most of them, yeoman farmers, and a number of the leaders actually went to jail over what over not attending the church of England as they were supposed to do out of starting their own separate congregation meeting in people's homes, and the basic complaint of the Scooby separatists in of all separatists with the church of England was this who's head of the church of England by definition. It's the king or the Queen of England the separatists maintained that the real head of the church must be and can only be Jesus himself. And so with all kinds of persecution full. Calling on these people in the very early years of the sixteen hundreds they decided to run away to leave England and moss to leave behind everything that they had known because they're Christian conscience. Demanded it now understand when they went initially to Holland they didn't do so to try to change the world to try to be part of a mass movement to try to create some kind of utopian colony that would then reform everybody they did. So because they felt they had no choice. This was what you had to do if you were going to follow your conscience and avoid being thrown into prison by persecutions by the church of England. So they head out to Holland. Arrive in Amsterdam, and do you know what you know, the reputation? Dan has today. I mean sort of noted for prostitution and drug running the reputation of Amsterdam in the early sixteen hundreds wasn't much better. All of a sudden these pious people arrive in sin city. Well, it wasn't according to their expectations and their travels. Their pilgrimage was actually only beginning they came to Amsterdam because Amsterdam was famous and Holland in general, the Netherlands in general, we're famous for religious toleration. You could do anything you wanted there and the government wouldn't interfere with you. But there was another reason they came which is that Holland and the Netherlands had been struggling against the Spanish Catholics for years, and it was identified as a bulwark of an uncompromising sort of Protestant Christianity. The Dutch Reformed Church that these separatists as they were called. Felt would be much more hospitable to their vision of Christianity. Then what was going on with what they saw as the utterly corrupt and irredeemable church of England back home. The problem is that once they arrived at Amsterdam they saw that though. The Dutch could be very fervently religious. Indeed, the city Amsterdam was not at all. It was a city the seaport city that even then was famous for its prostitution was famous for its ale houses estimated there were five hundred ale houses in the town of Amsterdam alone. And so all of a sudden these very pious and fervent believers saying, what are we doing here? Within a year of their arrival in sixteen o seven and sixteen eight they decided to move again to pack up everything they had now rather meagre possessions because they didn't have time to establish themselves financially in Amsterdam and to move to a much smaller city, the university city of Leiden enlighten. They got work as weavers they earned enough money to support themselves and to raise their kids, but they continued to be terribly terribly worried about their children growing up. What's fascinating about this is there was another group of separatists who had come into Holland about fifteen years before the screw be separatists. Other people who would reject the church of England other people that are much more pure and idealistic vision of Christianity called the ancient brethren, and what the pilgrim saw is that the ancient brethren after twenty years. In Holland had basically falling apart the kids had been seduced by the commercial culture of the Dutch. The kids were learning the Dutch language, and all of a sudden another idea began to generate a great deal of enthusiasm from some of the more daring leaders of this tiny little group. The idea was the wild idea of heading out to Virginia. Nath understand. I know a lot of people today who view Virginia as the center of the earth, and covering basically all of the planet. But in those days when people use the term Virginia, they were referring to everything between Florida and Canada that was all Virginia. What happened here was the idea of getting away from the contaminations of this world from the persecutions of the church of England from the seduction of a very commercial, very materialistic culture in Holland all of a sudden became very appealing. The problem was. How do you pay for such a voyage because in those days traveling across the ocean, especially if you're going to have some equipment.

"Their favourite form of music people played it they sang it. They cherished it. And that same Dutch visitor Isaac who came in sixteen twenty seven was deeply impressed with the piety of the pilgrim fathers. He had come from various Dutch settlements. Here's what he noted in addition to them marching to church on the Sabbath day, he seemed to be particularly interested in the Indian women of the new world. He described the Indian women as fine looking of middle stature, well proportioned and with finely cut features usually a gift of salmon, he said was sufficient to make them lascivious that was something he apparently experimented with. He said, they're very libidinous and very unfaithful. But when he came to Plymouth Derosier recounts his show. Doc on learning that the pilgrims of all things have stringent laws and ordinances upon the subject of fornication and adultery the laws. Do not in themselves surprising so much since the Dutch had similar laws, but the pilgrims amazingly enough enforced. There's very strictly more surprising still was that the pilgrims interpreted these laws as applying to know messing around with Indian women face was not a trivial matter for this colony the colony was all about and when difficulties were encountered the natural inclination was to solve those difficulties with prayer. Or when there was one difficulty encountered regarding the economic structure of the colony to solve those difficulties by restructuring that economy in sixteen twenty three all of a sudden the recognition came by. Governor William Bradford that the collective socialist model that the colony had been set up on wasn't working. Everybody had a share of whatever was produced, but this didn't motivate people properly. So finally, governor Bradford instituted the new worlds very first privatization faced with a crisis. He wrote in his diary, the colonists began to think how they might raise as much corn as they could and obtain a better crop than they had done that they might not still languish in misery and so Radford.

"The Mayflower sixteen twenty that winter half of them died. That cue the music. Yet here we are still alive. Go get the leftovers. So the next harvest was a little bit better. We talked a bit on Friday about how the Indians and the programs. They signed their first treaty and the treaty was to protect each other from any third party. Right. So any other Europeans or any other tribes who wanted to kill them? And then a few weeks after that. So. Like the sound of the street right at a couple of weeks after that. The pilgrims had their first harvest. A piece of corn grew occurred on ear of corn grew and they were so excited. They fired their guns in the air and ninety Indian warriors came by to see what the heck was going on right because they just signed this treaty. And they thought they were maybe a war. So they came to was up. Turned out. It was nothing. Right. They were just excited. They're celebrate. So the Indian warriors decided to hang out for a couple of days and make sure that everything was really, okay. And that was the first thanksgiving 'cause they all were standing there. And they're like, well, this is the together. But I think the important thing to know about the harvest was it was not a bountiful harvest. So we might have this vision. Our brains of the first thanksgiving being this big huge fall table. There was barely any food. So it was it was it was less. Look at all the food. We have to eat. We're gonna make it. Everybody was Lestat, and it was more. Well. Well, something grew at least. Probably going to die next winter. But. Might as well eat what we have more of that kind of attitude. But the reason why there wasn't a lot of food and eight in sixteen twenty one. Was because of the communist style economic system that the pilgrims had a system where no one owned anything. There are no private property rights at all for land or things each pilgrim was given a plot of land and each year your plot rotated. So you're on that plot one year, and then you're next door the next, and you got rotating around they did that to make sure that no family was given a particularly good or bad plot of land and complain about that because you're rotating around, but as you can imagine this really screwed up incentives because you had no reason to work the land properly if you weren't going to benefit from it the next year. And no one owned anything. It was all community owned, and that's communism. So this is William Bradford used the governor of the colony. Of course, he said this system is the letter he wrote this system was quote found to breed much confusion and discontent and to retired to slow much employment. So people were lazy. The young men that were most able and fit for labor and service. They worried that they should spend their time and strength to work for other men's wives and children without recompense without without better. I'm not get anything. So that the young men here's really sixteen twenty one saying the young men they're ticked off. And like, why am I working hard work hard for? If all I grow go feed that other guys kids who he's not doing anything. So the system made everyone lazy made everyone bitter, and it made everyone a bunch of thieves. Bradford said that the colony was riddled with corruption. He said the crops were small because quote, much was stolen both by night and day before it became scarce edible. So you see some corn growing next door neighbor's farm and even before it becomes good to harvest. You're going to steal it from the guy because if you don't you're not getting it anyway. People are stealing stuff all the time. So how about that? So this this communist like system, of course, communism one quite thing marks wasn't arrived for years, but. Stealing people bidder. Yeah. People lazy. So what did they do? Sixteen twenty one rolled around sixteen twenty two. And they got together. And began to think this is William Bradford began to think how we may.

"And also there was a lot of stories about the native Americans, and that they should be fearful of people and that people aren't to be trusted in in North America. And they had this fear instilled in them and falsely, and so they were very afraid of what they were going to find it was a long time before they even encountered some the native American groups. But eventually they did in squad was one of them who who found them. And befriended him, and he is an interesting character in of himself in what was that interaction? Like did the native Americans actually saved them is history suggested they TM things that they needed to notice survive and not all the tribes were their friends. They had their enemies. They did the if the native peoples wouldn't have found them and befriended them, I don't think they would have survived. So think of that squad to who's just a fascinating character in this. He had probably made four transatlantic trips by the time the pogrom, so he spoke English. And that was the reason he he went and met them is that he was the only the only native person who had English fluency think of that me. And the first time though, I mean how shocking that had to be through the pilgrim? Right, right. Wauneta comes through the forest and says Hello, and it can right. There is a me. It completely changed, you know, the preconceived notions. They had of the people there because here's someone who wanted to show them how to survive. But swan coz interesting because he'd been captured on at least two occasions and taken as a slave sold in Spanish slave market. I mean, just purely interesting person, but this is how you learn English. And so he took them under their wing and showed them how the native peoples planted corn how they caught fish things Pogos probably would not have figured out on their own. And I think it's it would have been hard hard survival without him. So they make it through speak to the feast. Let's get to it. The whole idea of thanksgiving is a is a much later tradition. But they did celebrate that first bounty. How did they celebrate it? What did they call it? And who is there? Yeah. So what's really it's about thanksgiving? We have as our holiday look save sort of mixed up several different events that took place at that time. And when they survived their first year, and they had a crop. They had a harvest festival now harvest festival was it was a secular event that wasn't a purely. A religious event. It was hey, we have food. Finally, let's eat it. And let's celebrate it was it was a great event they invited the native peoples who help them survive, but they ate too much of their food and actually put themselves back into into near starvation. The native Americans are saying why are they eating everything they've grown, but they were celebrating. Let me make sure something's clear though. These are are the pilgrims. I'm sure that all the thanks was given to God ahead of time. Absolutely. You're saying in not being a religious expression. It wasn't thanksgiving as we know it today. Right. Right. But they would have been grateful to God God would have been the center piece of all of they were celebrating. I would think. Absolutely. It was still called a harvest celebration. I just want to make sure that's yeah. Because they were very religious people very God fearing people so that would have been an element. Absolutely. It just it wasn't a church sponsored event per se. So they absolutely would have been thankful, and it was they gave all credit to God for getting them through and surviving. But it was a it was a nonreligious event in and of itself. Now, William Bradford is a key character in this. Who is he what's his role? And what did he do? Bradford was a young man at the start of this. And he was well read he was one of the people who helped chart the course in there government structure, and he became the governor again as a young man he was appointed. Governor of this colony age of that he was he was in his early twenties that which at the time was was kind of middle age it given the survival. But he was one of the one of our heroes of the story because he really brought the pilgrims through..
