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."
