The War on Christmas has been going since the beginning of Christmas, apparently. 

Adam might have ruined the history behind It’s a Wonderful Life, but today today he’s going for the yuletide jugular.

In this clip from “Adam Ruins Christmas,” Adam Conover takes audiences on an animated journey back to ancient solstice festivals to mark the end of Harvests. These parties were filled with cool things like cross dressing and fire — not tinsel, Aunt Mary-Anne. They were also the original Christmas celebrations, before a certain someone crashed the party.

Eventually, Adam tells that when Christians took over, they gradually introduced Jesus into these celebrations as a compromise. Citizens of newfound Christian municpalities could continue their celebrations if they included Jesus, so December 25 became Jesus' birthday party.

Want to impress the neighbors or just make them insanely jealous for no reason, then you’ve got to get a big tree, bro.

That’s just what this Twitter user claims to have done. He and his family went out and bought a big tree — too big in fact. The tree didn’t fit in their living room, but that wasn’t their plan. they cut it in half and stuck the second half on the roof, creating the illusion that the tree goes through the roof. It’s a lot easier than raising the roof, right kids? Kids still say that, right? Please tell me they do.
