It’s that time of year again, everyone. When everyone gathers together at their family homes to commence the War on Christmas. Via memeorandum, here is the opening salvo in this year’s battle, which I will call the “War on Christmas, Godwin Edition”:
Nazi Germany celebrated Christmas without Christ with the help of swastika tree baubles, ‘Germanic’ cookies and a host of manufactured traditions, a new exhibition has shown.
The way the celebration was gradually taken over and exploited for propaganda purposes by Hitler’s Nazis is detailed in a new exhibition.
Rita Breuer has spent years scouring flea markets for old German Christmas ornaments.
She and her daughter Judith developed a fascination with the way Christmas was used by the atheist Nazis, who tried to turn it into a pagan winter solstice celebration.
Umm, it kind of used to be a pagan celebration. It wasn’t too long ago that Christian ministers were fighting the concept of the Christmas tree, it was so clearly a Pagan leftover.
I fully expect this news story to make Glenn Beck and Bill O’Reilly cry tonight. I’m not sure how they will tie it to ACORN and the Obama administration, but you know they will.
