Early Life and Education
Stephen is a quiet yet sensitive boy living at Clongowes Wood College Jesuit boarding school. Compared to his more boisterous classmates in terms of athletic abilities and homesickness, Stephen trails far behind them and relies heavily on evening prayers as an anchor of strength and joy.
Nissenbaum states that Puritans viewed Christmas with disdain due to its associations with excessive celebration and drinking, as well as its conflictual relationship to powerful interests seeking control of real human needs and passions. An emotionally charged Christmas dinner at which Stephen must participate marks his gradual loss of innocence and will lead him down a path of disappointment in areas that once held great meaning to him.
Stephen Randall Christmas was born in Orlando, Florida – roughly 30 miles from Christmas – but that wasn’t where his name originated. Instead, it came about after attending Colonial High School and Oklahoma City Southwestern College; before an tryout with the Cincinnati Reds was set up by Hersh Freeman – former Red Sox pitcher with Red Stockings and Cubs experience.
Higher-ups were pleased with his play, yet he struggled to catch much and eventually was demoted back to Double-A Waterbury in Connecticut where he played more frequently and caught more efficiently.
