Nazis And "Happy Holidays!"
Oh, and they just loooooooved abortions, too

Interesting little article from The Daily Mail (London). Amazing how history repeats itself, huh?

Here's some of the article; How Hitler's Nazi propaganda machine tried to take Christ out of ChristmasNazi 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.

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.
