Well.....both the Celts and the Teutons sacrificed prisoners, both POWs and convicts.

There's evidence of ritual killings in the bog people that are sometimes found in Britain and Scandinavia. I guess Nat Geo says there's a big recent find that points to Druidic killings.

There's an ancient account from Roman times by a Roman who said that Druids would burn animals and humans alive in a wicker construction. Up until now that's been considered Roman propaganda, but it may not be far from the truth.

A sad part of history but I don't think there is any culture that doesn't have blood on it's hands.

The Christmas decoration connection sounds pretty far fetched though.
