This week I read a list of solstice and Christmas events in history, starting with the Newgrange around 2500 BCE: this is apparently not that far from Noah’s Flood, which was in 2304 BC, according to Ken Ham. Considering Stonehenge was supposed to have started around 2800 BCE and added to for another thousand years is quite curious indeed. Seems that Noah’s immediate family must have made their way there quickly and found it intact, so they immediately adopted or redesigned Druidic customs. Meanwhile, a couple more of the Noah family hurried to assume the Xia dynasty in China. They must have gotten to work on making babies rather quickly! It’s a good thing they brought the pandas with them.
This week Alison lectures some more on the origins of Santa. Who knew Santa was a Yeti? Looks like "Bob" really is Santa Claus’ son.
Welcome to an all-new Secular Solstice Season 2011! This year has come to a great start, since I did not have to work on Black Friday! How much better could it be? The clips for this show come from an old article in LA weekly by Jeffrey Vallance. It’s lauded by cryptozoologists for some reason, but I think it’s a great article for fans of the pagan origins of Christmas.

Thrill as Hellbound Alleee lectures on the secular and pagan origins of Christmas, because she’s going to keep doing it until everyone knows it and thinks they thought of it.
