Puritans weren't allowed to have any fun. Including singing, dancing, going to the theater, and they wore dark clothing. Their lives were totally devoted to God, and they lived their lives according to the bible.

The Puritans viewed education as a sin, and therefore did not approve of any education past the basic levels of math, and literature. The Puritans did not allow most women to be educated, women like the semi-famos poet Anne Bradstreet are some of the very few examples of educated women. For the most part the Puritans brain washed their children into believing what they wanted them to, and it has effected American culture to this day negatively. The Puritans view of education can clearly be traced to causing the Detroit riots, and also the prejudice to Asians, and people of hispanic heritage.

The fundamental rules of the Puritans were obedience to God and to the community religious leaders. The rules included regulations against lust, greed, laziness, tempting Satan (through drinking, dancing, merry-making), and laws enforcing a strict Sabbath.

The theater grew out of the tradition of enacting religious dramas. By the time of the Puritans, it was heavily secular, most of the material had nothing to do with religion. Theaters were seen in the same light as public houses, worldly music and dancing. They were magnets for vice, drunkenness, gambling, and prostitution. And they were fun. All this made them distractions from the pursuit of a higher, moral society pursued by the Puritans

The puritans were called puritans because of the root word "pure". They wanted to "purify" the church of England.
