Give that many of the “Winterval” myths are fuelled by a vague understanding that “human rights laws” are a new and alien thing which exist mainly to stop white people from celebrating Christmas, it’s interesting to note that in 1935, the British government was trying to get rid of a trade union activist from Gibraltar. However, advice came from the colonial office that deportation “was probably inconsistent with the UN Convention on Human Rights to which Britain was shortly to sign up.”

One alternative holiday of choice in the USA for non-Christians, particularly for African-Americans, is Kwanzaa.
