We featured this video last year and liked it so much, we’re doing it again.

Christmas flash mobs have become very popular over the last few years but so far none have matched the outstanding effort put forth by the Opera Company of Philadelphia in 2010.

We’re all familiar with the annual attempts to clamp down on Christmas.  Be it schools banning Christmas songs, Obama’s VA banning Christmas carols and cards for veterans, schools removing Christmas from calendars, or outrage and fainting vapors over the mere of sight of a Christmas tree, we expect this barrage of...

Sextremist (evidently, this is a thing), Iana Zhdanova kidnapped baby Jesus from the nativity scene in St. Peter’s Square in Vatican City Thursday. Zhdanova had “God is a woman” scribbled on her naked torso as she accosted the infant and attempted to flee. Vatican police intervened, returned baby Jesus to His...
