1500 AD
For centuries now, the Christmas holiday "season" or Winter Solstice is a time of excessive drinking, feasting, rude and offensive public behavior including but not limited to mocking of authority, aggressive begging, public fornication, home invasion of the rich ( this is linked to the idea or custom of "trick or treat" whereby the lowly could "knock" and ask for a drink or to be seated at the notable's table for "treat" and if denied a a nasty "trick" would be made against the house. ) This accepted behavior was called "Misrule". Another act of "misrule" would be to black one's face and cross-dress ( called Mumming ) or make disguise as animals to provide anonymity for debauched public behavior which included the disgraceful act of "Christmas caroling" ( drunken sing-a- longs ) At the time Misrule had little or no major threat upon society, it really strengthened the status quo by allowing the less fortunate, the poor and powerless, an opportunity to blow off steam. Sounds a lot like our modern "spring break".

The Winter Solstice celebration or feast came in December because it was the end of the harvest with less daylight and to cold to plow, but cold enough that slaughtered animals could be eaten and stored and the beer and wine was ready to drink.
