Here’s some dates to make you jolly,
Some facts of Christmas past.
Did you know the 25th,
Was first celebrated in 440 AD.
The last white Christmas,
Was in 2008,
Christmas cake in the 19th Century,
Was munched on Christmas Eve.
And here is one for historians,
Oliver Cromwell banned Christmas in 1947
(This ban was lifted in 1960)
