I've been reading the books that you suggested so so but but it. I mean it was so limiting media. Be like if it's if it's chaotic i. It can't be gods and and that's what we have to be. We have to be completely like our lives are not ours we have to give them away in understanding that the opposite of truth is a lie but were battling against a principality badly against the supernatural world. And i don't and i don't think people are just realizing that as when you're seeing darkness and you're seeing this happened in ford unfold in front of us were badly against as a power. That's evil it wants to destroy you. It wants to completely annihilate you it wants you to implode it does not want to give you hope it does not want to give you any light at all in christ is the complete opposite of that and so that's why it's so important that people are listening to this or or even if you're if you're struggling right now and but you believe that jesus is the hope in the light that you give that hope and that will then change you. That will help your depression. It will help your your the issues that you might be going through when you believe that truth you fall upon that truth and then you actually do that truth.

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

So when he does is he pulls them out. And he puts them on, and he, he said he reminds them of what he's given that he's also given his sight, this sort of the officers start crying. And then they said embrace this as Washington showing this, this sort of humility in this week this, but basically this appeal to their ideals, and the revolution is preserved in the army comes out as champions of liberty, but the last act in probably the most important in American history. In my opinion, and certainly, the last one of the last major accident continental army is this, so Annapolis in December seventeen eighty three piece has been announced. Washington is going to surrender his commission as commander in chief. To the continental congress. Now what is so? What is different? What is so shocking? Okay..

He's taught by the minimum order of Francis can monks, and I've paid very much attention to your detail of his schooling. Math Latin history, French German, geography physics, fortifications weaponry fencing, dancing, and music. And you mentioned that it's a bit of a bit of finishing school as well. His German was weak geography was strong. Did he like it? Did you remember later in life? Is a good start. Yes, he did. He was always very proud of his education, and it was a very good school.

Bullying from his school, contemporaries did actually of MAs school. It was a Spartan life. And you say his nickname was the Spartan straw met one blanket and one visit from his parents after three years and he studied for eight hours a day. But when the children, other his classmates were playing he was sneaking off to read history, again, he reads, the lives of great men. This, this looks like this looks like Napoleon for dummies here. He reads, Marlboro reads Oliver about Oliver, Cromwell, did his schoolmasters note. The fact that Napoleon had a great affection for historical figures. Yes, he did. They, they quit early on. That he did well and, and that he's a bright lad. And in when he was being. When he was being tested. He did pretty well in tests, north as you mentioned, some other subjects that in the ones that you really need it for a military career joke, is you mentioned about the message very important for all Tillery. He he did outstanding. Well, of course might nother of the reasons that he was booted large head and a very small frame is mother worried after three years, when she visited that he looked thin. So clearly, he was driving himself. I have a wonderful, quote from you. Andrew, I was the poorest of my classmates. Was that a was that a problem for him that he didn't have pocket money that he couldn't buy food for others? Yes. Well, it later on in life. He couldn't by himself. You know, he was down to one meal a day, which is seeking to have a psychological effects on new some extent, but didn't care about any of that. Macleod's away being say intellectual at a place, which was military, academy. And that was pretty pretty robust just place unless he also at this time developed the ambition with that was to, to see them through. Let's go off to Paris because he sits his final exams at brand in September of seventeen eighty four. And he's appointed or a wins and appointment to the ako militar in Paris. Was that a status school, totally? Yes, it was the equivalent of West Point. We'll stand three chapels a day rising six AM riding riding riding you emphasized, especially in the Italian campaigns that he was a tireless horsemen is that typical of the time did everybody do well on horses. I remember grant the, the, the boast about grant was that it was a great horseman, even if he wasn't he didn't impress his classmates did Napoleon impresses classmate. Yes. Lehtonen life. Actually, he would he do tricks with. Tool. Right backwards. That he was very fine wholesome. Which was an absolute prerequisite for the cavalry, of course important for the al-tairi, which is what he decided to, to give into us as a study at the echo minutes at which is just about two hundred. Away from where the Eiffel tower is now it's still there. Fabulous them. One eighteen century building. I went looking on Google earth when you pointed that out, because I think I've walked over where the militar was and I didn't know it was there in the next in parasol, certainly, go look. Has the team different cool show, including one with output Dreyfus was so wants to sleep humiliated, the classes, seventeen eighty five I'm taking notes from Andras extremely careful book, two hundred two candidates one hundred thirty six past and of those one hundred thirty-six only fourteen chosen by artillery? I did not know until your book Andrew that the choice of artillery was a status symbol at the time. Why? Well, it was important in the in the seven years wool, which from had lost say competitively in the seventeen fifties and sixties, and they knew news that it needed to get to get the all Tillery writes, in order to win the future walls, and they really concentrate. You don't getting very good people in that spending of money reading about the latest inventions trying to make kind of light and fuss off though. And, and so, so it was understood that it was key to future victory. And he studies artillery because it's a new science, but they teach him how and I wrote down the details here they teach him how to make his own gun powder. How to cast his own canon, how to build the, the, the carriage for the cannon and I guess they taught him everything about. Rangefinding and where to move is this is this is the first generation of being able of field artillery. This brand new to the battlefield. Yes, it's, it's some of the some of the sort of basics. Almost exactly the same as, as moulders walls. Yeah. A hundred. But they, but he was very much only sort of cutting edge of the new ideas, especially about. House us different metal to make cannons lighter and a moment because if you can do that attach them to. Tool season three it means the whole battlefield Taty changes where you can, you can move your kind of around as when the battle developed, which is exactly what Napoleon learns to do when they give him the command of an army.
