Mondo Diablo Episode 334: A Christmas History Timeline

December 10, 2011

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.

Mondo Diablo Episode 331: Santa is a Wildman

November 26, 2011

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. You can read the article here:

Mondo Diablo Episode 286: This Christmas has Been Brought to You by Child Labor

December 9, 2010

This week, the Krampus and his workers, Knecht Ruprecht, Krampus, Hans Trapp, Zwarte Piet, Klaubauf, Muff, Butz, Pere Fouettard and Belsnickel, bring you the last in the series of Worst Jobs podcasts. This time it’s children making dolls for children, gos-herding and turkey dressing. As in, yanking the guts out of hundreds or maybe thousands of fresh turkeys, by hand, in time for Christmas.

But my own day of judgment is at hand (did you know that the Visit from Saint Nicholas could be considered a mini “day of judgment” for children? It’s true)! I will be presenting, tomorrow night, a small amount of information about Christmas political history, characters and pagan traditions that have come all the way to us. We will also have a nice atheist Christmas party. Now THAT’S how freethinkers have a Christmas party. With a lecture. Luckily, I have pictures.
