The Years (plural) Without A Christmas
"Of christmas it is indulgence. Christmas has long been time to break out the good booze and gorge yourself on sweet desserts made with expensive imported spices. To say nothing of the gift giving you know who didn't like all of those things oliver cromwell when he and his puritan forces took over england in sixteen forty five. They vowed to do away with decadence and went full. Alan rickman sheriff of nottingham and cancelled. Christmas shops were ordered to stay open on december. Twenty fifth and soldiers patrolled the streets with orders to seize any and all food. They found being prepared for a feast. It would take no less than restoring a king to the throne in this case. Charles the second to get christmas back. Puritans weren't exclusive to their native england and a bunch of them thought the spoiled beauty of the new world could really use some severe self-denial the puritans we refer to as pilgrims and about whom many myths were dispelled in. Our recent thanksgiving episode were even more orthodox in their puritanism than cromwell bonus fact that parallels the split between the amish and the mennonites. The amish broke off because the mennonites weren't strict enough since the puritans were among the first europeans to establish themselves in what would become america celebrating. Christmas was not a thing. It wasn't simply that they didn't celebrate it themselves. They didn't want anyone to celebrate the holiday. They had dubbed fools tied as an england shops and schools were expected to be open though. Interestingly churches were ordered to be closed on christmas one of the two days a year when even the laziest christian can be bothered to turn up. It was more than the frivolity and gluttony that they minded they viewed it as not properly christian. Puritans followed the bible very strictly. If something wasn't in the bible like taking any day for rest other than a sunday it might as well have come straight from the devil that would include the idea of resting on the day that jesus was born but since the bible also doesn't specify what day that is no big loss s historian stephen this inbound explains puritans were fond of saying that if god had intended for the anniversary of the city to be observed he would surely have given some indication as to when that anniversary occurred. The date of december twenty fifth wasn't officially the mass of christ until the fourth century. When pope julius the first subsumed the roman festival of saturnalia into a christian celebration. Which gave us some of our most enduring traditions like holly in candles. Puritans were also not keen on the papacy so they didn't care if it was official for twenty two years from sixteen fifty nine to sixteen eighty one. The celebration of christmas was actually outlawed. In the massachusetts bay colony the law went into effect one year after the brits had gotten their christmas restored by well the restoration the laws stated that in order to prevent disorders to the great dishonour of god and offensive others. Anyone found celebrating the holiday. Either by forbearing of labor feasting or any other way would be find a hefty five shillings on one christmas day. Plymouth governor william bradford noticed some people playing an old equivalent of baseball and ordered them all to get back to work. Now would be an appropriate time. If i make an aside and i may because it's my show to remind people that religious freedom is when you say that's against my religion. I can't do it but religious freedom does not mean that's against my religion. You can't do it. Even after the ban on christmas was repealed in sixteen. Eighty one staunch puritans still fought against christmas celebrations for decades in sixteen eighty six. The newly appointed governor of the dominion of new england closed shops on christmas day and sponsored a holiday service. This idea was unpopular enough with enough people. That soldiers had to accompany the governor to church. Those sorts of protests of christmas would continue but their focus would shift from celebrating at all to the way in which it was celebrated and what a way it was. We aren't talking about a family sing. Song and three helpings of pie or even old timey whistling colonial celebrations of christmas looked more like mardi gras mashed with halloween. If it took place during spring break drunken revellers take to the streets wearing scary masks or dressed like animals singing boisterously and demanding food drink and money under threat of violence ad in the ancient pagan roots of those practices. And we see that. The puritans had quite a lot to get their noses out of joint about boston minister. Cotton mather preached to his congregation more than thirty years. After the law's repeal the feast of christ's nativity is spent in reveling dicing carding masking. And in all licentious liberty by mad mirth by long eating by hard-drinking i- lewd gaming await. Those are meant to be bad things. After the american revolution or the kerfuffle of ungrateful colonials as the british call at surreal thing. You don't have to google it. Just trust me. English customs fell out of favor and since celebrating. Christmas had come over from england. It began to peter out to. It wasn't even declared a federal holiday until after the civil war in eighteen seventy. It was around that time that americans. Reinvented christmas and it changed from a raucous pagan carnival. Holiday into a family centered. Day of nostalgia nostalgia used to be considered a mental illness by the way. But that's a story for another day. So why the shift. The early nineteenth century was a period of class conflict high employment and of rioting by the lower classes that tended to come to a head around christmastime one such christmas riot in eighteen twenty eight moved the newark city council to institute. The city's first police force in response. This motivated certain members of the upper class to change the way. People viewed christmas literary figures like washington irving the man who helped co defy the until recently launched view of christopher columbus in eighteen nineteen. Urban wrote the sketch book of geoffrey crayon gent a series of stories about the celebration of christmas in an english manor house wherein the rich person invites pour into his home and the two classes of people get along swimmingly and celebrate with quote ancient customs. As nice as that is it's worth noting that the details of the books revelry don't parallel any celebration. We know of irving actually attending and seems to have been completely imagined. It's the season of giving and you
Paprika In Hungary
"Let's start today's travel. With rick steves with the role a little pepper from the new world plays in that tasty cuisine of hungary. Note that today's interviews on paprika galicia where recorded just prior to the global shutdowns pepperoni as the backbone of hungarian cooking as the crucial ingredient in chicken pepper. Cash and hardy hungarian stews from mild to hot. We'll find out why this spicy so central to hungarian identity. How to best buys and pepper on your trip and we're going to learn how you can spice up. Your own meals was well to get this education hungarian paprika. We're joined by to guide tonight studio from hungary. And leonard and george farkas anna and george. Thanks for being here. Thanks for having us thrill to be well. Thank you from coming all the way from budapest a long trip. And we're gonna talk about paprika. I mean when we think of hungary we don't know a lot about hungry sometimes. But we think of paprika. What's the connection actually public. A strong connection because it is actually from the american continent and it was The physician of christopher columbus or columbus who brought it to the old world to i not to hungary of course but to spain that through the commercials of the mediterranean sea it got to the ottoman empire and when the ottoman empire extended its political power to eastern century up. We glad to not only bad things that we also got things like the patrika. What are the coffee so paprika and cuffy came as your time in the ottoman empire in paprika actually from america via columbus actually us. So i like teasing are two members and americans who is. That's why to travel here. Righ- flying through the But i like my publisher hungary. There's something romantic about having paprika in hungary. And why does hungary embrace paprika. What does it mean to hungarian. I have great micro-climate lots of sunshine. And what is very important that when we got the paprika was a hot spice and it was the hungarians who grew the might version of it it is from the nineteen twenties when in a small. Get in sega. It was kind of discovered. And since then if you come to our covid market hall you can always buy tubers the mild paprika and the hot fabric honky now. George when i go to budapest i always go to the big market hall right. But it's the name of that. Hologhan bashar knocking hungarian big market or century. You can't miss it when you're a tornado in credits. The first one out of five actually that they built at the time. And what you're going to find is well everything that hungarian cook would want to find. But certainly find peppers. See when you look for the peppers in the market. Well actually. you're not looking for peppers you looking for paprika is already well there is. It is basically a huge difference because many people don't realize it in hungary. Everything is called paprika. Let it'd be around fat skinny red yellow sweet and hot so i'm a little confused. Then so because Is it a pepper or it is a but we call it paprika but we also called a powder paprika yes because when i think of peppers and my supermarket we've got yellow ones and green ones red ones and that all of that. We call paprika even if it's Any shape really And then you have. It already powdered. If you're looking for the paprika that you cook with powdered yes okay. So it's a very unique technique to powder because One of the things that you have to be extremely careful with how you approach paprika once you grind paprika after all the time you spent with it to become dry and ready to grind. You have to do it very slowly makers as soon as you pick up speed you burn the paprika and that remains throughout its lifetime because once you come to cook it again you have to be very careful with a not to burn it because then you just have to start over again tour guides from budapest anna leonard and george farkas are filling in on the importance of peppery cup in the cuisine of hungary right now on travel with rick steves. Okay so when we're talking about this have rica and i think it goes back the days when spaces were really important. I mean spice was big money in the early days of training today today at that time and originally now why was spaces in general very important economically for people well. It was a very important product. It was expensive at that time. It was not so easy to fly from one continent to other a trip two months of making food more interesting or is it a matter of preserving food actually spicy i got to the highest study stock chrissy those who had the opportunity to get products from far far away and paprika also i was introduced for the highest stock resi in hungary after people realised it is not poisonous because i it was considered a supposin and when they discovered that it has healing effect. You know it here the colorado and screw after it they started to make its production but it was a rarity and it was very expensive so at first who is just for the very wealthy and then you learn it. It helped as medicine against scurvy and cholera. Yes but also medication. Very often is a privilege of the wealthier class. Not available for everybody. Some

Christopher Columbus Day is still a point of contention between Italian Americans who say they're celebrating their culture and activists who condemned the Explorer for mistreating indigenous people as well as his spread, helping spreading slavery. I should say just this summer, protestors clashed with police when they tried to tear down the Columbus statue in Grant Park. Then the city removed all of its statues and Chicago public schools dropped his name from federal holidays. As for the statues, the city hasn't said what they plan to do with them. Some possible options are putting them in a museum or back up around the city. The

You foundation. We should re Nam a member. We should demand an apology on Columbus Day from all the people that wanted to tear down the lumber statues, at least. No, You're absolutely correct. Unfortunately, unfortunately, John, that this false negative narrative that has been around for too long about about Christopher Columbus, and we're doing something about it. We actually created the presence of an organization called the National Columbus. Education Foundation, which is made up of the five major attain organizations, all in the one roof. We have, Ah, we have probably within our organization's over a million Italian American members. And our goal is the counter negative. Narratively actually just produced calm produced that the Knights of Columbus, a documentary about about crystal And the true story of Christmas Columbus and the audience wants from you is they can go to the Knights of Columbus Website slash Columbus and they will be able to find it. It's called courage and conviction. The truth about Christopher Columbus and you know it's for too long. The attendant community has been complacent, has not said anything and let all of this Negative talk about Columbus. Go on without countering it. But those days are over. Well as a Zapata, Italian. I demand those people apologized to the Italian people. Not only that, but those people who took down those statues unlawfully should be should be impassive. You did under the under the law that President Trump has has talked about. That absolutely as hate crimes. You know, we say, John got to hate and seek the truth. That's what we want People underside seeking truth. Angela Vallo. Congratulations and look forward to spending time with you on Columbus Day on, and likewise. Thank you so much opportunity to speak and God bless you. God bless Well, today we got a real New York with us. We have Ray Kelly 47 years with the NYPD serving 25 different commands went from to get all the way to police Commissioner and 14 years as police commissioner, So he knows what's going on commission to tell you. What the heck is going on. Well, a lot of bad things. Unfortunately, John no shootings or up over 100% for the year. Murders are up. 40% cost 60% burgers. They're up over 40%. So these are all obviously bad signs bed omens of what's going on. And what's the Come on? I think The primary reason for this is that the department has abandoned the proactive strategies that have worked well for years and suppressing crime. Ah, the elimination of the anti crime unit, something you and I have spoken about the several times before. I think has been a major blow to crime fighting in in the city. Anti crime units are plainclothes police officers who sort of On the hunted. You might say they're out there. Looking for part of it is they're addressing violent street crime that's worked very well for years. But ah, this mayor has decided to eliminate inside crime units. And also, of course, the police officer's uniform police offices. On the streets till they get absolutely no support. No backing from Ah made the boss So are there backing off, they've become much more reactive rather than Proactive in pro activity has really been the main reason why crime has gone down in New York for a couple of decades, all the sudden, it just Few short months. That's the turn completely around. Commissioner. I mean, you've been out in Suffolk County. I've seen you around here. I mean, there's 500,000 New Yorkers in Suffolk County, and a lot of them are refusing to come back. So what do we do? I mean this They're not scared of covert. I think they're scared of the crime in the streets. Yeah, I think it's a combination of things. Quite frankly, John because there's a feeling of unease. People complained to me all the time about the that they feel unsafe in the city now. You know that 160 CEOs of some of the world's most important companies sent a letter to make a deposit. You were one of the signatories asking him to address the issues of crime. The issues of Of safety in the city. Any basically blew it off. So you know if it's a signal to people, eh, you know things are going to remain pretty much is that this crow for for a while, so we need more people on the streets..

How Have Hispanic Americans Helped Shape the U.S.?
"Brain Steph Lauryn Boban here. Here in the United States, it's Hispanic heritage month, which officially began as Hispanic Heritage Week in nineteen, sixty eight. Unlike many other campaigns that observe and honor the contributions of a particular group of Americans Hispanic heritage bump run throughout. September. But rather starts on September fifteenth and continues through mid. October. So, why does it start in the middle of the month? Well, a Costa Rica El Salvador Guatemala Honduras. Nicaragua. All celebrate their Independence Day on September fifteenth. Mexico's is on September Sixteenth Chili's is September eighteenth and believes independence. Day Is September twenty first. By, stretching into October, the holiday also includes de la Raza on October twelve, which is a kind of rejection of Columbus Day because of Christopher, Columbus's many crimes against humanity and see our episode on Columbus Day for more about that. De la Rosa instead celebrates the melding of Hispanic races or Raza, and cultures. In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, let's talk about three times at Hispanic Americans have changed the course of history. Some three hundred years after Spanish, conquerors became the first non native Americans to view the Mississippi River and later the Grand Canyon one host. Jeff Marianne Hernandez helps smooth transfer of the territory of Florida into US rule Florida was still part of Spain when Hernandez was born in Saint Augustine in seventeen eighty four. But that changed when he was selected to serve in the House of Representatives and was sworn into duty in eighteen, twenty three as the first Hispanic person to serve in. Congress. In historical context Hernandez being a slave owner is a controversial figure. Still. He remains the first one, hundred twenty eight Hispanic people to serve in the. US Congress. Maybe of more relevance today is the first Hispanic senator elected to a full term in Congress. New Mexico's Dennis Shabas in nineteen thirty five. We spoke with Paul Orbits Historian at the University of Florida. He said in addition to being the first American born Hispanic senator. He's critical for the time we live in because he fought on behalf of all working class. Equally, he fought for higher wages legislation he fought for people to have the right to organize a union he fought for more progress and you as foreign policy for Latin America he organized N. Double ACP leaders against Jim Crow Segregation. Then, a Chevette as one of those people we can use Hispanic heritage month to talk about our connection other people's democratic struggles. Today's Congress. The one hundred sixteenth has forty seven members of Hispanic heritage. Hispanic Americans also helped turn the tide of the civil war. Some twenty thousand were involved in the conflict. While some in the southeast sided with the confederacy especially those who came from wealthy families with plantations or other businesses in Louisiana Alabama more supported the union. or it said a lot of Mexican American soldiers fought on the side of the Union army in the southwest and actually helped defeat the confederacy in the southwest. Hispanic people in the West back the Mexican government to and celebrated the country's defeat of the French at the battle of Puebla on May fifth of sixty two single Demayo in a victory that may have helped prevent the French from siding with the confederacy and thus ultimately helping the Union win. A bit more modern only about eight years before the US Supreme Court ruled in Brown versus the Board of Education, that segregation in public schools is unconstitutional as Spanish schoolgirl showed the way. Sylvia Mendez a Puerto Rican and Mexican heritage was just eight years old when she and her brothers were denied enrollment into the white only Westminster School district in Orange County in nineteen, forty three. At the time about eighty percent of California, school districts were segregated. Her Parents Gonzalo. Felicitas Mendez enlisted other parents to fight the decision and they took the school board to court. After appeals that were abandoned short of the US Supreme Court Mendez Versus Westminster became the first successful federal school desegregation case in the nation that was in nineteen, forty seven. The case was important arguing that segregation itself even if schools were separate but equal was harmful unconstitutional under the fourteenth amendment specifically, the clause, the calls for protection of the laws for all citizens. In appeals Sylvia's case was argued by Thurgood Marshall who went on to argue for the

"Aboard. A lot happened last night. Overnight. Three o'clock in the morning, The statue of Christopher Columbus was removed. From its place. In Grant Park Roosevelt in Michigan. To a small crowd cheered at 3 a.m. Aren't those people supposed to be home? What were they doing out at 3 a.m. Isn't it? Roosevelt and Columbus? Red sky that sort of between the two. I thought it was between Lakeshore Drive in Columbus. I just No, I just went by the machine and I tried to form this every day. I don't know what I'm glad you guys are arguing about important things. Let's stick with what it is The statue taken down. And carted away and the mayor's office released this statement. City of Chicago Admiral Life its direction temporarily removed Christopher Columbus statue in Grant Park and a Rego Park until further notice that's in Little Italy. It comes in response to demonstrations and become unsafe for both protesters and police as well as effort by individuals to independently pull the Grand Park statue down an extremely dangerous manner. This step is about an effort to protect public safety and reserve safe space for an inclusive and democratic public dialogue about our city's symbols. In addition, our public safety resources must be concentrated where they're most needed throughout the day, and particularly in our south and West side communities. Okay? This statue is never going back up. I know what they're saying. There's like, Oh, no, it's going, OK, We're going to back up. It's going to be just fine. I mean, we're gonna have a dialogue about it. Dialogues over, they removed him. And I removed him because of the fear the threat of mob action Little inside baseball story here. That I was supposed to sit down earlier today with the superintendent of the Police department and do an interview zoom interview with him for the Lincoln Forum, which is an organization here. That is a bipartisan organization. It does. But politicians and media leaders, civic leaders business leaders together and they do conversations about future of Illinois in Chicago. So we were scheduled to have this and we'd scheduled on Tuesday, ready to go at noon today. We got a call yesterday afternoon, saying, Hey, the police Superintendent cannot do this interview, and I'll do the interview. Because we are concerned about his availability tomorrow. We know we are anticipating protests. And with that, all right, Okay, That's it. I mean, what do we do about it? I thought it was interesting that it was that the word protests came up in the In the explanation for why he wasn't going to be available. I thought, Wow, what do they know? And I do know that that is we've talked about on this. You know now because we talk about this that there are intelligence Organizations within the police department within federal agencies here in Chicago, that du cul information whether it's and social media through human intelligence, whatever it is that They're aware of what's going on in The protest. Community there. Also aware of what's going on in some of the I don't want calm protesters because these air agitators these air outside people they're coming in from other places. They're staying in downtown hotels, not inexpensive downtown hotels, and they air going out there, armed with umbrellas and and frozen bottles of water and black suits that they can know that Hide their identity. Almost like they're scuba divers. You know, like, who are these guys? Well, they're aware of them to please and FBI and all the rest of the people who are charged with keeping downtown safes are aware of them and we've watched them. We watch them last Friday night a week ago tonight we watched them with their umbrellas. Those were the ones causing the greatest amount of trouble at that protest at that statue. At the Columbus statue. And We saw what happened. You saw the agitation you saw you saw the police under attack. You saw police not armed in turtle suits, not armed in much more than just their jackets in a helmet. Flack, check their bull professed and a helmet. Trying to trying to take this on. Over a dozen police officers had to be taken to the hospital be treated. Does ends of police officers reported being injured at the end of that. And it was over that statue at that moment at that time, but was it really Was it really? Isn't it really about People trying to create mayhem Distraction. Rioting create public displays. Do you think that now that the Columbus statue is down? This is going to end. It is not The next target. Will be at It is time to confront this where it really stands. And I appreciate that the police superintendent, having other things he has to do today. I appreciate the police department for all the work that they have to do. This is about making sure that we are safe. But it is time to have this conversation. It's time to have this conversation about who these people are who are causing the problem these air, not necessarily Chicagoans, peaceful protesters. You always hear about it all. It's peaceful protest, or what about the peaceful protester? Fine. I've seen the peaceful protesters I've seen in my own neighborhood. This is not the issue. Peaceful protests are not the problem. It's the agitators. It's whether it is antifa whether it is some other group and if it's left wing, right when we don't even know we just don't people want to cause trouble. And often you have false flag attacks in these Protests trying to make the protesters look worse than they are or trying to make. The opposite political position looks worse than it is. Just to create violence. Get your phone calls your reaction, although through into 981 72 100 your reaction to the taking down of the statues. It's you know, we're in a situation. I talked about this, I said last week. We cannot have Mobbs tearing this city apart. You can't do it. It cannot be a lot. That is not what this city is about. That is not what civilization is about.

"This is weekend edition from NPR News. I'm Lu Garcia Navarro. Statues, mostly linked to slavery are being taken down in some parts of the country. But some protesters are tackling older history, looking at the Spanish conquest and its legacy of violence theft. Erasing of indigenous culture and forcible religious conversion. Statues of those Conquistadors like monster Don and Wanda have been defaced or taken down in several states, including New Mexico, California And Florida. This is fuelled a larger debate within the Latino community over their colonial heritage and its place in modern America. Louis de Involuntary Arcia joins me Now he's an assistant professor of digital history at Texas State specializing in Spain and its global relationships. Welcome. Hi. Thank you for having me. First of all, help us understand? How did these statues get put up in the first place? Well as the United States was changing its borders throughout the 19th century, the idea of who counted as American was changing. And so a lot of the colonial statues that we see of Christopher Columbus of Isabel of Bonds today on all these people really comes from this idea that There were people that were not being accepted as Americans in the 19th century, and they tried to lay claim to that through these statues. Well, there's also been pushed back right in the Hispanic and Latino community against taking these statues. Down recently, Cuban writer Fabulous Santiago in the Miami Herald wrote an op ed titled We Don't Need to Raise Florida's Spanish heritage to fight modern day racism. Can you explain a little bit about that argument? Yeah, I think that it's trying to think about what it is in our history that we want to celebrate. And I think one part of this is actually a representation of the lack of integration of Latino Hispanic history in elementary and High school curriculums, so Latinos and Hispanic identifying people are descendants of indigenous and European people. They are of colonizers and of the colonized, and this is also true for many black Americans. But some of this really does go back, Teo the larger tensions within the Latino community, You know, white Hispanics who come from Spain or have lineage to Spain might see these statues differently. And it's an opportunity for the Hispanic and Latino identifying people in the United States. Tohave thes hard discussions about race that have been subsumed for centuries. We need to talk about what white supremacy is. When you talk about colorism. We need to talk about all of this within our communities and be aware of where it's coming from. So I don't think that this is a moment where We should hold steady to our statues. It's a moment that we can actually reflect a little bit more. A good metaphor would be you might see a lot of statues and Catholic Church, right, But imagine if you were to seal a statue to Satan and a statue to Judas Iscariot. No doubt Those two figures are important figures in the history of Christianity. But the figures that we put on the pedestals are supposed to tell us something about our values. I think anybody who would walk into a Christian church and see a statue of Judas Iscariot and of Satan would probably rightfully question the sort of ethics of that. So, to what extent do the arguments in support of keeping these monuments echo what we're hearing with those defending the Confederate monuments? And is there a link between movements on the far right supporting the Confederate statues and those within the Hispanic community maintain these monuments to Spanish colonialism? A lot of the fire I actors are using this language of re conquest to talk about taking back land. On that's prominent and like the statues of Isabel and Columbus, But the's statues show more about us and our current moment or in the moment that they were put up. Then they actually show about the history itself. Ludan. Valentin Garcia is assistant professor of digital history at Texas State University. Thank you very much. Thank you. I appreciate it.
