    Why did couples in the 19th century marry on Christmas Day ?
    Why did couples in the 19th century marry on Christmas Day ?
    It was not uncommon to be married on either Christmas Day or Boxing Day in the 1800ís because they were days when working people were not expected to work. Christmas Day and Boxing Day were traditional holidays and are not, and never have been, bank holidays. For these, we need to thank the banker, Sir John Lubbock and his love of cricket.
