Some Very Old Yule
rls certain that very early In tho
Christian era Christmas was cele
brated In Britain, mingling In its
festivities some of the winter festlral
customs of the undent Dritons anil the
Roman Invaders, for traces of thoso
celebrations are still seen In some of
the Christmas customs of modern
The ancient Goths and Saxons called
their festival Yule. Throughout the
middle ages and down to the reforma
tion the festival of Christmas engraft
ed on the pagan rites of Yulo continued
throughout Christendom to be univer
Hally celebrated with every mark of
rejoicing. On the adoption of n new
system of faith by most of the north
ern nations of Europe in the sixteenth
century the Lutheran and Anglican
churches retained the celebration of
Christmas and other festivals, whlph
Calvlnlsts rejected absolutely, denounc:
lug the observance of all such days, ex.
cept Sunday, as superstitious and un
crlptural. During the reign of Alfred tho Great
a law was passed in relation to holi
days, by virtue of which the twelve
days after the Nativity of our Saviour
were set apart for the celebration of
the Christmas festival. Some writers
are of the opinion that but for Alfred's
Htrlet observance of the "full twelve
holy days" he would not have been de
feated by the Danes In 878, for It Is
charged that his enjoyment of the fes
tivitles of Christmas hindered him
from preparation for the battle.
"We Hud that In 901 King Edgar cel
ebrated the Christmas festival with
jrreat splendor at York, and lq 1013
Ethelred kept his Christmas, with tho
brave citizens of London who had de
fended the capital, with a siege wid
Htoutly resisted Swegen, the tyrant
king of the Danes.
Edward the ponfessor, It la noted)
elebrated the first Christmas festival
of his coronation with great rejoicing;
and In 1060 on Christmas day William
the Conqueror was crowned king of
England at Westminster. The Nor
man klngH and nobles who now be-
ame rulers of England displayed their
taste for magnificence in the most re
markuble manner at their coronations,
tournaments and their celebrations of
Christmas, Easter and Whitsuntide.
At the Christmas feast minstrels
played on various musical Instruments
during dinner and sang or told tales
fterward both In the hall and In the
chamber to which the king and'ihls no
blea retired for amusement;. Thus It
la written of a court minstrel:
Before the kins' he set htm down
And took hia harp of merry sound;
And, bm he full well'bftn,
Many merry notes tw, began,
In 1007 the CCriqneror kept a! grand
Christmas in London .having Invited
a number of the Karon chiefs to par
ticipate, and ulso caused a' proclamd'
tlou to be read lh nil the churches de
claring It to bo his will that "all tho
citizens of London should enjoy their
natlonnl Ihwh as lh tile days of King
In the hall tho serf and vassal '
Held that night their Christmas wasiall;
Many a carol, old and saintly,
the minstrels and the waits.
