An article on various Christmas customs, including:
"OLD FATHER CHRISTMAS.
Father Christmas as a personification
of the festal season has
emerged from the old St. George's
play, in which he has for many
generations played a picturesque
and beneficient part. The play
has been preserved in one form or
another until to-day, and is
incorporated in the Plough Monday
performances as lately revived at
Tollerton and elsewhere in Notts."
