What Did Oliver Cromwell Ban?

Answer

Oliver Cromwell was a religious man and also a Puritan who was strict and did not believe in ‘pointless fun’. So with these beliefs and mind set, he banned the pointless fun and gift-giving during Christmas so that the people could focus on the real meaning of Christmas, and that is the death of Jesus Christ. To some, this was considered as banning of Christmas.
