Holiday Peace = Not supporting the troops

It's extremely offensive to camouflage a Christmas wreath as a peace symbol. Everyone knows Jesus hated peace.

Duh, didn't you know that Christmas was a violent, war-mongering holiday? What's this peace nonsense.

Seriously find me one christmas song with the word peace in it? ;-7

I believe Peace is an improper translation.

It should be "Sleep in heavenly Pieces (after being slaughtered by the reindeer)

Peas on Earth instead of peace on earth because Peas are symbolic of little heads rolling around due to the christmas reindeer slaughter. duh

Well, I think the rebuttals about the people opposed to the wreath not appreciating peace is a little off target. I certainly don't believe these people should be fined or persecuted in any way for their wreath, but I find it hard to believe the community doesn't like peace. They don't like what they believe the peace symbol represents, and, to them, it is not peace. It's an upside down cross with the limbs broken down. That's how they interpret it. It's slightly delusional, but it's a popular belief.

the "Peace Sign" was also the formation sign for the 3rd Panzer Division as it lined up to invade France in 1940...

Slightly delusional is an understatement. People search way too deep for interpretations of things to justify why they don't like it.

Really? I thought it was first designed in 1958?
