This Christmas, don’t forget about how Dec 25 was a pagan holiday that the ancient Roman Christians co-opted because they didn’t like the crazy sun cult of Sol Invictus.
On a small side note, every time I look at Sol Invictus imagery I can’t help but think of the Statue of Liberty. And you know what? The followers of Sol Invictus took that particular crown from the imagery of the goddess Liberty. History had no copyright laws.
