Criminals Named Christmas

There was Christmas Jones, sent to prison for debt in January 1815.

Christmas Allen (father and son), both charged with larceny.

And Christmas Crisp, who did six months for larceny in 1837. His son, Christmas Crisp Junior, appears to have been an honest man.

Perhaps being named Christmas was the 19th Century equivalent of having the middle name Wayne. [via Criminal Historian]
