Times of London editorial, 11th December 1904
This modern enthusiasm for the gifting of trinkets and baubles on Our Lord and Saviour's holy day is an abomination.
Christmas is the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ, and all respectable Christians should be in church giving thanks to God almighty for His most precious gift, His only son.
Throughout England, rather than praising Our Lord, many will choose instead to worship at the idol of Mammon, exchanging oranges, apples and nuts in blasphemous defiance of the Christian traditions that have made Great Britain great.
This pandering to the whims of blasphemers is nought but political correctness gone mad...
