Peace sign is the other way round.
Reinventing ChristmasIf the National Socialists were divided amongst themselves as to just what form religion in the Third Reich should take, then Christmas was both a proving ground for their varying ambitions and a site of conflicting ideas and contradictory impulses.
Christmas, of course, was one of the most important dates in the calendar for German Christians of both Confessions; but for the Nazis it also offered a priceless opportunity to capitalise on a festival that traditionally brought people and families together and to overlay it with meanings central to a new conception of the German state.
As one party functionary, Hannes Kremer, put it: â€œIn our efforts to deepen National Socialist forms of behaviour in the area of rituals and ceremonies, we have two main tasks. On the one hand, we must create new ideas and new customs, and on the other hand it is necessary to adjust those customs that have grown out of the people to the â€
Also, when these balls are hung the swastika will be at an angle and as far as I know, all the religions that have used the symbol have used it straight.
This wouldn`t be totally idiotic if it weren`t for the fact that:A) The religious symbol you`re referring to is Hindu and Hindus don`t celebrate ChristmasB) These ornaments are red with the swastika inside a white circle- which is what you will find if you look at the flag of the Nazi Party.
Catbarf is right. the only difference between these and the American flag on a ornament is a matter of hindsight.
It`s our hindsight at the atrocities which that symbol came to stand for that makes the difference. Cat understands the meaning of the word perfectly.
Davymid was on the right track, but it wasn`t only the Buddhist and Hindus that used that particular symbol. The Buddhist and Hindu swastika was usually formed counter-clockwise, the Nazi adaptation has the "arms" going clockwise.The symbol was also used in various pre-Christian European folklore.
Of course, if they are new, then it is horrible :P
Hurr durr. Patriots had patriotic Christmas tree ornaments.
The ONLY difference between those and ornaments with, say, the American flag is a matter of hindsight.
Göring has only got one ball Hitler`s [are"> so very small Himmler`s so very similar And Goebbles has no balls at all
Hitler has only got one ball, Göring has two but very small, Himmler is somewhat sim`lar, But poor Goebbels has no balls at all.
Hitler: he had but one left ball, Mussolini: he had none at all, Stalin: he was three-ballin`, And that`s the dictator`s rise and fall!
Hitler has only got one ball, The other is on the kitchen wall, His mother, the dirty bugger, Chopped it off when he was small. There are more variant , just get them here:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hitler_Has_Only_Got_One_Ball
(Oh two things if you count knowing how to kill jews?)
OK, I`ll shut up now. These are more Nazi than Hitler`s mustache.
