First, it should be noted that in 1870, congress created the concept of "federal holidays." At that time, congress declared Christmas one of the federal holidays, along with New Year's Day, Independence Day, and Thanksgiving. But long before congress recognized Christmas, Alabama had become the first state to make it an official holiday, in 1836. However, not every state agreed: back then, some states were influenced by Puritanism, and regarded the celebration of Christmas as sinful. Some sources say that Oklahoma was the last state to officially recognize it as a legal holiday, waiting until 1907 to do so.
