The Internet's Christmas Art is The Bomb - Odd Nugget

Contents

It's a shame that Christmas tradition dictates humans uproot the one thing that gives oxygen, stores carbon and provides shelter for wildlife.

Did you know most Christmas songs prior to 1930 were of a traditional religious character?

The Great Depression era of the 1930s brought a stream of songs of American origin, most of which didn't explicitly reference the Christian nature of the holiday.

Of course, neither did Edward Scissorhands and Die Hard, but those are considered vaguely Christmassy now too.

Anyway, right this way to the crazy Christmas art we found all over the Internet...

It is a fair, even-handed, noble adjustment of things, that while there is infection in disease and sorrow, there is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good humour.
