"Xmas Bulbs" in Nazi Skies
New German Secret Weapon?

The Nazis inadvertently keeping in the Yuletide spirit, have produced a new secret weapon, apparently for air defense, resembling the huge multi-colored glass balls used to decorate Christmas trees.

These transparent spheres, colored silver and other shades, hang in the air either singly or in clusters. No information has been revealed as to what holds them up like stars in the sky, what they contain, or what their purpose is supposed to be.

They have been seen several times floating over German-held territory.

Despite the new "secret" weapon there won't be a "Merry" Christmas in the Reich this year. Instead, according to German radio, “Christmas this year must be marked by hard work.” Gestapo chief Heinrich Himmler nevertheless assured the Nazis that “this war will end in victory for us.” Field Marshal Wilhelm Keitel, Nazi chief of staff, warned the Wehrmacht to continue giving the Hitler salute.
