Celebrating Diversity: Hitler's Christmas

By Rick Pearcey • December 24, 2010, 12:05 PM

In an article titled "Hitler's Christmas Party: Rare Photographs Capture Leading Nazis Celebrating in 1941," Allan Hall reports at the UK Daily Mail:

The pictures from December 18, which have only just come to light, show Hitler and his generals at a party for SS officer cadets in Munich.

But the Nazi Christmas was far from traditional.

Hitler believed religion had no place in his 1,000-year Reich, so he replaced the Christian figure of Saint Nicholas with the Norse god Odin and urged Germans to celebrate the season as a holiday of the ‘winter solstice’, rather than Christmas.

Out of sight at the top of the tree behind Hitler was a swastika instead of an angel, and many of the baubles carried runic symbols and iron cross motifs. The remarkable pictures were captured by Hugo Jaeger, one of the Fuhrer’s personal photographers.

And so this is diversity, John Lennon might sing. In all its pagan glory and anti-Judeo-Christian passion.

But note, according to this report, many Germans still called the December celebration "Christmas," indicating perhaps they employed a "living," evolving definition of that term, just as today we have Obama, the ACLU, and other secularists glorying in a "Constitution" that is also a "living," evolving document.

You almost begin to wonder who won that war.
