How the Nazis tried to steal Christmas
The Nazis attempted to ban Christmas as part of their ideology. By using nationalistic and pagan symbolism to eliminate any religious associations with the annual festival, tree decorations were replaced with Nazi runes and swastikas, and the only hymns to be heard were songs that honored the Aryan race. However, the people of Germany were huge fans of Christmas and despite being told it was a winter solstice festival by Hitler and the gang, they celebrated anyway.
