Gambling Was Permitted During Saturnalia
During the period of Saturnalia, Roman courts were closed, which led to the state of complete anarchy. No one was to be punished for damaging property or injuring someone during the festivity. In addition, a ban on gambling was lifted, which was one of the most severe infringements during the Romans’ rule. They called this festivity “Lord of Misrule”. The Romans strictly obeyed it, thereby believing they would destroy the dark forces.
