December 25th

1000: Hungary is established as a Christian kingdom by Stephen I of Hungary. Yeah, sure... making your country Christian on Christmas Day, like that's a tough decision.

1868: President Andrew Johnson grants unconditional pardon to all Civil War Confederate soldiers... except for the ones who gave him a fruit cake for Christmas.

2009: "Underwear bomber" Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab unsuccessfully attempts a terrorist attack against the U.S., but successfully gives thousands of TSA employees an excuse to touch our junk forever.
