Who banned Christmas 1647 – 1660? Why did they ban it?

They banned Christmas because they mistakenly believed in disinformation against Christmas.

Christmas is unbiblical. Christmas is biblical.
 Anything similar to Catholicism is bad. Catholicism has good and bad sides. Just filter it.
Any bad things in Christmas day resulted from Christmas. Remove Christmas = remove bad things. Bad things in Christmas day should be categorized into Anti-Christmas tradition, instead of Christmas tradition.

Remove Anti-Christmas tradition, keep Christmas tradition (such as pray, reading and meditating Gospel, singing Christmas songs of Jesus) and supplementary tradition which is not in the opposition against Bible.
