A history of the gentleman’s Christmas
Today I will be writing a short piece on the history of Christmas. You have no doubt already read the overview of Christmas, Christmas music and the spirit of Christmas, but there is some important history behind gentleman and the festive season. So please read on.
Christmas dates back literally dozens of years. It began on a quiet morning, in a town far away, by a man who died long before his time. He was a distinguished gentleman in every sense and was renowned for upholding gentlemanly morals at all times. That’s right, you know who I’m talking about.
Of course, I’m referring to the modern reincarnation of Christmas in a festive sense, not a biblical one. This is Christmas as a celebration of family, togetherness and smooth Cuban tobacco. If you’d like to know the strict derivation of biblical Christmas, please refer to the birth of Hercules.
So JFK is credited with being the founder of the holiday of Christmas. If anyone shows you a photo of people celebrating Christmas before circa 1960, treat this person with the utmost suspicion. If they profess their innocence, then it’s a sure sign that they’re lying. Do not hesitate in challenging them to a duel.
And so now with our new-found knowledge of the true history of Christmas, I would like to wish you a merry Christmas on behalf of The Gentleman. Don’t forget to keep our saviour (you may choose between Hercules and JFK) in your thoughts.
And so concludes The Gentleman’s week of Christmas!
Until next time,
