Ep. 18 – The Long War On Christmas

Ho, Ho, Ho, it’s Christmas! Which means only one thing: WAR!
We talk about early Christians saying no to Christmas, then yes, then later Christians saying no again. We then meet an unlikely hero in the form of an author who saves the day. Before long a car maker thinks the jewish people are out to get the holiday, a grumpy TV man is yelling and a coffee chain ruins it once and for all with a red cup. RED I tells you!
Grab some eggnog, light a fire, sit back, relax, and enjoy.
