Father Christmas is Dead
Sorry kids…
Historians have uncovered evidence that Father Christmas lived in Essex and died nearly 500 years ago. Archivists at the county’s records’ office have discovered a brief archive entry that states Father Christmas was laid to rest at a churchyard in the village of Dedham on May 30, 1564. It simply reads: ‘The 30th Day, Father Christmas was buried.’
[Obviously there’s a boring explanation for this, which you can read about in the original article]
