‘Tis the season for right-wingers to wallow in their persecution complex whenever a public entity acknowledges the existence of non-Christian beliefs!

Okay, in truth it’s kind of always that season, but you know what we mean. We’re talking about the “War On Christmas!”

This week’s “battlefront” involves a Fox News host persuading a town to put up trees by comparing Christmas to D-Day.

The whole thing got us doing a little digging into the legal history of Christmas, and we uncovered a couple gold legal briefs we really liked—”The War(s) on Christmas in the Law Books” and “Researching the Legal History of Santa Claus” by attorney Kurt X. Metzmeier.

They were chock full of interesting facts you might have fun tossing back across the dinner table with that one member of your family who really wants a political argument.
