The tradition of Easter

As it happened, the pagan festival of Eastre occurred at the same time of year as the Christian observance of the Resurrection of Christ. It made sense, therefore, to alter the festival itself, to make it a Christian celebration as converts were slowly won over. The early name, Eastre, was eventually changed to its modern spelling, Easter.

Tradition in Britain

For many years in England, a roasted boar's head has been associated with Holiday feasting. The custom probably goes back to the Norse practice of sacrificing a boar at Yuletide in honor of the god Freyr. One story tells of a student at Oxford's Queen College who was attacked on Christmas Day by a wild boar. All he had in his hand to use as a weapon was his copy of Aristotle, so he shoved the book down the boar's throat.

Christmas festivities

Having incorporated these elements , the Christian church subsequently added , in the Middle Ages , the Nativity crib and Christmas carols to its customs . By this time lavish feasting was the highlight of the festivities with large quantities of food , including a decorated boar’s head , ceremoniously consumed over eight or nine hours by rich and poor alike . All this came to an abrupt end in Britain at least when in 1552 the Puritans banned Christmas , a move followed in Massachusetts seven years later .Although Christmas returned to England in 1660 with Charles II , the rituals all but died out until revived in Victorian times .
