NANCY:  For someone like me, who loves Christmas so much that the tree will be up all year long, like an overgrown plant with lights, this would have killed me.  From 1659 to 1681, the Puritan authorities in Boston, Massachusetts made celebrations of Christmas illegal. The reasons have been investigated, and it seems to be (from my limited research) a matter of holier than thou attitudes and wanting to control behavior and the social order.  I hope they all got lots and lots of coal in their stockings.

In  November 1899, 21 and a half years after the first launch, the Holland VI was tested by the US Naval Board of Inspection and performed flawlessly.  The Navy purchased the submarine for $165,000. What a way to kick off a new century!
