The swastika was originally one of many variations on the Christian cross.  It was, in particular, a form of the cross on the Indian Subcontinent.  I have seen pre-World War I sets of Rudyard Kipling books in the homes of some people for whom I have house-and-pet sat.  The spines had swastikas on them.  Since there were no Nazis in 1911, the swastika here is an innocent symbol.

Now, of course, the swastika is a ruined and corrupted symbol.

At the end of each year I hear and see nonsense about a “War on Christmas,” with sayings such as “Season’s Greetings” and “Happy Holidays” as alleged evidence.  I come from a long line of Christmas keepers who have had no hesitation using “Season’s Greetings” cards.  And I recall hearing the Andy Williams version of “Happy Holidays” at home when growing up.  None of this corrupted my soul with a secular, Godless agenda. Besides, with the grouping of holidays at the end of the year, “Season’s Greetings” does have the benefit of succinctness.

And I keep Advent for weeks before I observe all twelve days of Christmas.
