    The swastika with dots in it like that is not a Nazi symbol. We visited a Hindu temple back in my school and they had swastikas exactly like that around the place. I can`t remember exactly but I think it had something to do with peace or holiness.

    that`s a drating symbol related to bhuddism stupid people. the clockwise arms show this. The counter-clockwise arms show that it`s the swastika.

    Also, this wrapping paper looks really related to Hinduism....yes they have one too. Fail blog for these people.

    Ummm...If it was Nazi wrapping paper it would have Nazi colors seeing as how it wasn`t the swastika (shared by many different cultures) that stood for the Nazi party, but the context in which it was used in conjunction with all the other symbols as an identifier of ideology.

    The Swastika dates back to ancient Indian civilizations, and is used to symbolize the creation of the universe and stability. Before the German`s bastardized it of course.

    "Am I making something out of nothing" Yes. Yes you are.

    What about the media who did this `story`? They`re despicable. But then most American media are 1% information 99% bad entertainment.

    Now if your wrapping paper looked like this, I`d be suspicious. But *EVEN THEN* it would still not qualify as news.

    To everyone screaming "It`s a Buddhism thing!" and calling the woman stupid.

    Look again, the twist *is* the reverse of the Buddhist symbol. It *is* a swastika. What it is, is a "typo". I`m sure the printer meant for it to be the symbol of luck, but in fact got it wrong. Unless you`re wearing tinfoil hats, in which case the media reversed the negative to make it into a Nazi symbol.

    It`s coming to people posting on forums, trying to feel superior, and posting Wiki as an infallible resource. That whole "anyone can edit" thing... sort of hurts credibility. What seems to be missed is this. I see a printing mistake. Not a subtle attempt to mainstream someones views.

    alright, we all know that this symbol was not created by the Nazi party in Germany. It was around a long time before them. but when you look at it now, most people here in the US and probably most of Europe dont think oh, hinduism, thats nice. they think christmas good, Nazi bad. and thats just the way it is, which is why its a problem to sell that paper at the dollar store she bought it from.

    "justjason44"

    It`s not backwards. It`s how it`s supposed to be.

    The Nazi symbol is tilted anyway, and if you looked at the paper at all, you would see that this wasn`t tilted in relation to the pattern.

    Not to mantion, the color scheme`s completely wrong.

    And I can understand why this would be sold. Not everyone celebrates Christmas as the only f*cking holiday. The store owner bought it from wholesale in NEW YORK, where there`s a massive population of people from other races and cultures.

    Store owner`s an idiot for not thinking about his shoppers at all (it`s in Florida...), woman`s an ignorant idiot for seriously having to call in TWO people to confirm, and the news station`s a bunch of morons for obviously not doing ANY research at all into the symbol.

    Hell, even my old history book said the swastika was a stolen symbol...

    Some history here, The Nazi`s stole the swastika for propaganda reasons. It`s a representation of Thor`s hammer (Mjolnir) in flight. Other cultures use it as well including the celts, american indians, and I believe it`s used in asia as well.

    So consider the source before jumping to conclusions.

    Btw, The peace symbol is also known as the Witch`s foot or Goblin`s Cross.

    Historically, the swastika became a sacred symbol in Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and Mithraism, religions with a total of more than a billion adherents worldwide, making the swastika ubiquitous in both historical and contemporary society. The symbol was introduced to Southeast Asia by Hindu kings and remains an integral part of Balinese Hinduism to this day, and it is a common sight in Indonesia. from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swastika

    "it`s ugly wrapping paper anyway"

    I have to agree here, the use of green, white, and dark gold is not harmonious whatsoever.

    Personally if they swapped the green with a nice bold or bright red, maybe that`d make it a little more pleasant. Lighter colors tend to convey a much more cheery mood, while darker ones seem to come off as solemn and dignified. Not really the attitude for a festive occasion.

    I really hate how drating ignorant some people are.. including this bitch..

    Like Gorillaz said, the swastika is a scared symbol Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and Mithraism LONG before Hitler ever came along.

    I have a friend who`s was raised catholic/Jewish & now strictly follows Judaism. A friend of ours, who`s religion is Hindu, got that same symbol as a tattoo. She asked her, "What does this mean?!" My friend was genuinely offended by her tattoo, the friend explained what the meaning behind the symbol was & explained the difference between the symbols, my friend response was more of disgust then anything..THIS COMING FROM SOMEONE RAISE CATHOLIC FOR 28 YEARS!

    People like this woman & my friend only make themselves look like @ss holes when they pull this sh.it.. Well, at least the dumb bitch above got her 15 seconds of fame..

    Well, the first thing that came to my mind when I saw it was Buddhism, and Hinduism.

    Had it actually looked anything like the Nazi version of the swastika, I could understand but I really think before putting this in the news, and before reacting the way they did, they should have done some research first.

    I`m not even surprised it`s covered in them, if it`s made in China.

    People are too stupid these days.

    To add to MisAntThropy,

    It`s not even about what the swastika represents, it`s that it`s a symbol that goes well with the motif the wrapping paper happens to have. She`s ignorant for making something out of absolutely nothing. People immediately think swastika = nazis, and that`s a damn shame, because it`s a very simple pattern.

    I`d be offended if I got a gift wrapped in that paper. That is the ugliest effing wrapping paper i`ve ever seen.

    well its a damn shame that a swastika is like a hindu peace symbol or something. when i was in greece last year there was swastika mosaic motifs all around several rooms of a museum, noone was offended.

    Oh my. It`s from FL. I`m so surprised. -_-

    I`m sure this isn`t intentional. Sure makes a good story, though.

    absolutely right, originally the Swastika was/is a smybol of peace and protection its just that it was given a negative connotation. For example the Spanish monks wear robes identical to the Ku Klux Klan and the trident of Neptune is now a common image when satan is being portrayed. It`s sad to say that in 2009 with the way our liberal mindset is that we make a big deal over Swastika wrapping paper.

    Actually the Swastika was the pagan symbol for the sun. Its original form is rotated 45 degrees to the left so it looks kinda square. The Nazis and other groups rotated it to look offset to implicate the changing of the sun and other celestial bodies as if they are changing the world

    I hate how ignorant people are now-a-days...just because the nazis TOOK the symbol it automatically makes it bad? no, learn the history of it, it was never a bad thing before the nazis and it has been around for hundreds/thousands of years before the nazis.
    what are the schools teaching people these days?...NOTHING

    Made in China, bought and sold in America, local news station can`t do research to figure out its the Hindu symbol of peace, this country gets stupider everyday. Good Job public schools.

    the ones on the paper are right-facing as they would be on a nazi flag, but so are most Indian swastikas. Also notice the 4 dots on the inside of the symbol are similar to a lot of Indian swatikas such as those of Jainism. If they where Buddhist from outside of India they would be left-facing, so I`m imagining it`s an indian design probably produced in china.

    Don`t call the lady who worried about the paper stupid, I would only have expected the news people to do a little more research.

    swasticas were origenaly a sign of good luck and should still be vewed as such. nobody relises that and every time they see them they instantly think about the nazis.
