Daneo Video's history

there are 250 days until Christmas

🎅
After the last Thursday of November's big meal we'll watch on TV people battling each other in a game over who can score the most.

I'm talking about the security camera footage of the pre-Black Friday sales.
The day used to be known as Thanksgiving.

The winter soltice drifted away from original day of December 25 before they corrected the calendar for how long a year was.
It was easier to convert people by matching the ancient celebration days with Christian holidays.
(Shepards would be watching their flocks in the spring when the lambs are born.)

Store ads won "The War On Christmas".
The real battle is "The War on Science".
The church finally admitted scientists they persecuted like Galileo were right.

Most Christmas traditions are from the past 150 years or so.
It used to be celebrated with lots of drinking like how Americans celebrate Saint Patrick's.
That helps explain why Christmas was considered a pagan holiday by the Puritans.

Bing Crosby's "White Christmas" was #1 on the charts on Halloween 1942.

At one point before they were called Christmas trees, decorated solstice celebration trees were set on fire in the town square.
