HELPP!! PLEASE? :) A slave who would work during the holidays was considered by our masters as scarcely deserving them. He was regarded as one who rejected the favor of his master. It was deemed a disgrace not to get drunk at Christmas; and he was regarded as lazy indeed, who had not provided himself with the necessary means, during the year, to get whisky enough to last him through Christmas. (Excerpt from The Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass by Frederick Douglass) The main idea of the passage is that drunkenness was the best Christmas present a slave could expect.

    drunkenness was the best Christmas present a slave could expect. slave owners encouraged drunkenness over the Christmas holidays. slave owners encouraged drunkenness throughout the year. slaves were untrustworthy people who drank on holidays.
