A little known fact about Christmas is that from 1647-1660, England's Puritan rulers passed a law that made Christmas illegal (although pro-Christmas rioting broke out in protest).And, in Colonial America, the Puritans of New England outlawed Christmas in Boston from 1659 to 1681.The press praised it as a brilliant blend of technology and tradition, calling it "a giant leap forward in holiday revelry".Each year since, millions of children and adults worldwide have helped make chatting with Santa into a 21st century Christmas tradition.Dickens took Christmas away from the community/church based celebration and made it into a family-centered festival of generosity (family gatherings, seasonal food and drink, dancing, games, and a festive generosity of spirit).Then, in what most historians agree was the most significant Christmas related development in the past 150 years, a website named was launched in 2004 to allow people to chat live with Santa Claus over the Internet.

Several centuries later "wassailers" would go from house to house singing them.Scotland also abolished the observance of Christmas, from 1640 until 1958 when it became a Scottish public holiday again.By the 1700s and early 1800s, the observance of Christmas had dwindled.Because very few people have actually seen Santa Claus in person, we can only speculate about what he looks like.The modern day image of Santa Claus was created in New York after the American Revolutionary War (1775–1783).
