I used to think Christmas was a wonderful, great holiday that was really a tribute to Yahusha Ha’Mashiach (our Redeemer Whom most call by a name [Jesus] NOT His original Name). I have recently been exposed to the true roots of this holiday, and I cannot in good conscience continue to celebrate it knowing the Satanic, Pagan roots that this holiday is based upon. Once truth about something is realized, it is sin to the person who continues therein while knowing it to be wrong. So, let’s take a close look at Christ-Mass.
Although I have found no one who knows the exact date when the Messiah was actually born on, many agree it was probably most definitely NOT even close to December 25, and might have been about 6 months after Passover, maybe sometime in September. So, how the hecksterisms did we end up with Dec. 25th you may ask? Well, it all started with that evil guy, whom some call a good man, named Flavius Valerius Aurelius Constantinus, or better know as ‘Constantine.’
Constantine is said to have converted to “Christianity,” and had previously worshiped the pantheon of Roman gods as all his predecessors had done, and especially the Roman sun god, Sol. Constantine sought to blend Natsarim and pagan traditions together, which then formed what we know today as “Christianity.” And at that time, two popular pagan winter festivals were celebrated. The first one started on December 17 and lasted seven days to honor Saturn (Saturnalia, the Winter Solstice), the Roman god of agriculture. The second one started on, you guessed it, December 25, and lasted until January 1, commemorating the birth of Mithras, the Persian god of light. Constantine simply blended many of the traditions from these two festivals with the Nativity story in the scriptures and Christmas was born, with the first mention of December 25 as the date of the Savior’s birth found in a Roman calendar from A.D. 336. So, from the time of Christ until Constantine, there wasn’t any celebration of the birth of the Jewish Messiah.
But, you may ask, what Pagan ideas were blended in with this new brand new holiday? Well, just about everything you can think of concerning Christmas.
This whole season was called Dies Natalis Invicti Solis, the Birthday of the Unconquered Sun, with the festival season being marked by acute merrymaking. Mummers were groups of costumed singers and dancers who traveled from house to house entertaining their neighbors, in which we get the Christmas tradition of caroling.
The pagans of northern Europe celebrated their own winter solstice, known as Yule, which represented the pagan Sun God, Mithras, being born. Observed on the shortest day of the year as the ‘sun god’ grew and matured, it was customary to light a candle to encourage Mithras, and the sun, to reappear next year.
They would burn very large Yule logs in honor of the sun, the word Yule itself meaning “wheel,” as in a pagan symbol for the sun. Mistletoe was considered a sacred plant, and they had a custom of kissing under the mistletoe as a fertility ritual, with holly berries thought to be a food of the gods.
Live evergreen trees were brought into homes during the winter as a reminder that their crops would soon grow again, with evergreen boughs sometimes carried as totems of good luck and present at weddings, representing fertility. The dreaded Druids used the tree as a religious symbol, engaging in their ceremonies while surrounding and worshipping huge trees.
So, the evergreen tree was a symbol of the essence of life and was regarded as a phallic symbol in fertility worship, witches and other pagans regarded the red holly as a symbol of the menstrual blood of the queen of heaven, also known as Diana, and the holly wood was used by witches to make wands. Isn’t this comforting to know?
Oh yea, and the white berries of mistletoe were believed by pagans to represent droplets of the semen of the sun god!
Ivy, which is holly’s mate, in ancient Grecian rites took its name from a girl who danced with such abandon and joy before Dionysius that she fell dead at his feet, with the pagan god moved by her dance, turning her into the ivy that she might entwine whatever is near. Dionysius was the Greek version of the god of wine and revelry, another form of the gods Bacchus, Tammuz, or Nimrod.
The mistletoe was referred to by pagans as the “golden bough and was supposed to posses the power of revealing treasures in the earth, and was formed into a “divining rod.” It was also seen as the “seat of life” of the sacred oak, and as an emanation of the sun’s fire. Kissing under the mistletoe is a survival of Saturnalian sexual licentiousness and bawdy behavior, which was commonplace at the Saturnalia.
The word “Christmas” is a combination of the words “Christ” and “Mass, with the word “Mass” meaning death, and was coined by the Roman Catholic Church.
Turning to the lie that many tell their children concerning the existence of Santa, Santa is supposed to enter the house through the chimney, and was developed from an old Norse legend. The Norse believed that the goddess Hertha appeared in the fireplace and brought good luck to the home.
The original “Nicholas” was Nimrod, the “mighty one against the Lord,” with the word “Nicholas” meaning “mighty one, powerful.” Traditions of a “god” who gave gifts under an evergreen tree dates back over 1,000 years before the so-called St. Nicholas of Asia Minor, and among the Scandinavians, it was the god Odin or Woden who left special gifts during the Yuletide season under the evergreen tree – his sacred tree.
Says van Renterghem: “He was a compilation of two separate saints (one from Myra in Asia Minor, the other from Pinora), both of whom were — as the Church nowadays admits — nothing more than Christianized water deities (possibly related to the Greco-Roman god Poseidon/Neptune).”
Says van Renterghem, further: “By absorbing such PAGAN FEASTS AND TRADITIONS, the Christian Church could subtly bring in its own theology: in this case, establishing the good Saint Nicholas, bringer of love and gifts, while grudgingly allowing the presence of the Olde Religion’s Herne/Pan, but only as a slave to Saint Nicholas. Thus, in parts of Europe, the Church turned Herne into Saint Nicholas’ captive, chained Dark Helper; none other than Satan, the Dark One, symbolic of all evil….
“In Holland and several other European countries, the Saint Nicholas figure is still highly esteemed. He appears as a tall, dignified, bearded, white-haired old man, dressed as a Catholic bishop, complete with cloak, mitre, and pastoral staff, a seemingly genuine Catholic saint, but with a bizarre, quite unsaintly habit of riding through the skies on a white horse, followed by his Dark Helper. It seems that our Catholic saint inherited some of these customs from the pagan god Wodan, who had also been a BEARDED, WHITE-HAIRED OLD MAN, also dressed in a hat and cloak, carried a staff (or spear), rode a white horse, and dragged along the same dark slave/helper on a chain.”
The Dutch “Sinterklaas” brings gifts to good children, while bad children are harassed by the “Dark Helper,” called Zwarte Pier, or “Black Pete.” Like Santa Claus, Sinterklaas also is supposed to have entered homes through the chimney, with his helper, “Black Pete,” still honored, fur-clad, scary, and mean to children. Although portrayed as the slave helper of Saint Nicholas, the two are many times blended into one character, who often has the name Nikolas or Klaus. Thus “Santa Claus” is blended with Satan the devil.
Odin is another name for Nimrod, who was “the mighty hunter before (meaning against Elohim” (Gen. 10:9).
Says Alexander Hislop: “The Wodan or Odin of Scandinavia can be proved to be the Adon of Babylon.” Nimrod, Adon, or Adonis, of Babylon was the great “war-god.” Odin was the same. Nimrod, in the character of Bacchus, was the god of wine. Odin was said to partake of no other food but wine. The name of one of Odin’s sons, Balder, indicates the meaning of Odin’s own name. Balder is a form of the Chaldee Baal-zer, ‘The seed of Baal.’ The Hebrew ‘z’ in the later Chaldee frequently became a ‘d.’ Baal and Adon both signify ‘Lord.’ Since Balder is the ‘son of Baal,’ as well as the ‘son of Adon,’ or ‘Odin,’ then Baal, Adon, and Odin must be the same person — representative of Nimrod, the first human to be deified and proclaimed by the pagans as a ‘god’ after the Deluge!
“‘Santa Claus,’ then, is not so innocent and cherubic a figure after all! Why do parents take their young children, sit them on ‘Santa’s lap,’ and insist on teaching them Santa Claus myths? The word ‘Santa,’ rearranged, spells “S-A-T-A-N,” and ‘Claus’ is reminiscent of ‘Claws’ — in other words, ‘SATAN’S CLAWS!’ Do you want Satan, the arch-enemy of mankind, to get his ‘claws’ into your children? By teaching them Santa Claus myths, and taking them to ‘Christmas parties,’ with ‘Santa Claus’ handing out ‘gifts,’ you are subtly teaching your children to worship Satan the devil, the great impostor!”
Alexander Hislop: “That Christmas was originally a Pagan festival, is beyond all doubt. The time of the year, and the ceremonies with which it is still celebrated, prove its origin. In Egypt, the son of Isis, the Egyptian title for the queen of heaven, was born at this very time, ‘about the time of the winter solstice.’ The very name by which Christmas is popularly known among ourselves — Yule-day — proves at once its Pagan and Babylonian origin. ‘Yule’ is the Chaldee name for an ‘infant’ or ‘little child;’ and as the 25th of December was called by our Pagan Anglo- Saxon ancestors, ‘Yule-day,’ or the “Child’s day,’ and the night that preceded it, ‘Mother-night,’ long BEFORE they came in contact with Christianity, that sufficiently proves its real character.”
The Saxons offered a boar in sacrifice to the sun, to propitiate the queen of heaven on Dec. 25th, with the boar in pagan mythology having slain the false pagan Messiah. The boar was prominent in the feast of Saturn at Rome, with the boar’s head still a dish in England at Christmas dinner. Says Hislop: “There can be no doubt, then, that the Pagan festival at the winter solstice — in other words, Christmas — was held in honor of the birth of the Babylonian Messiah.”
And what other things coincide with the date of Dec. 25th? The largest pagan religious cult which celebrated sun worship was Mithraismin, celebrated on Dec. 25 . They called it “the Nativity of the Sun,” with Mithras, the sun-god, supposedly born at this time, together with Osiris, Horus, Tammuz, Hercules, Bacchus, Adonis, Jupiter — all the pagan Messiahs, possibly indicating that all these pagan sun-gods and deities trace their roots back to the original sun-god of ancient Babylon — Nimrod.
T. G. Crippen writes: “Now in December and the beginning of January there were several festivals which were intimately associated with the daily life of the Roman people. First, from the 17th to the 21st December, was the Saturnalia, the great Roman holiday….One might call it the Feast of Topsy-turveydom; when slaves were allowed for a few days to enjoy the semblance of freedom, were waited upon by their masters, and chose from amongst themselves a mock king to preside over their revels. Next, on the 22nd, came Sigillaria, the Feast of Dolls, when a fair was held, and dolls and other toys, mostly of earthenware, were given to children. Then, on 25th, came Brumalia, otherwise Dies Natalis Invicti Solis, The Birthday of the Unconquered Sun, when the days began to lengthen after the solstice….It is believed to have been instituted … by the emperor Aurelian, in honour of Mithras, the Persian sun-god…”
Mithraism was the most popular belief in Rome and Greece, Mithra being a Persian male sun god. Dec. 25th had been the date of the festival called the Nativity, celebrating the birth of Mithra.
Now let’s turn to the tree trimmings. How about the star on top? It’s a five point star related to Nimrod. And Buddhists baked cookies in the shape of sun gods and tied chestnuts with yule ribbons with colors of red and green and tied them to oak trees or evergreens. Little girls would walk through town with candles upon their heads to welcome the sun god into their villages. Christmas wreath are round, symbolizing the “everlasting sun.” Pagans put candles on trees and window sills in a bid to ask the blessings of the winter god.
In some traditions, an evergreen tree had gifts on it and was lit on fire to please their gods. The Druids tied apples to the branches of evergreens to thank their god, Oden, also hanging lighted candles on them to honor the sun god. Round Christmas ornaments represent the sun, thus the sun god.
This following video will explain that the star you put on top of your Christmas tree is actually a pentagram (Devil’s Star).
Yuletide represents the 12 days of Christmas, starting on Dec. 25 and running to Jan. 6, with the end date being the time of the birth of Aeon, the god of eternity or time, with a virgin giving birth to Aeon.
How about Santa, his reindeer and the chimney? Notice that Santa is red and white, while the psychedelic Amanita muscaria mushroom (think Alice in Wonderland, Mario Brothers and Smurfs) is also red and white. Thinking of this mushroom as a ‘present,’ it grows under evergreen trees.
In the Scandinavian area (near the North Pole) long ago only the rich and powerful were able to consume these mushrooms. So, to solve this problem ‘Shamons’ of the community (maybe some with beards) would have a sack full of them and enter the commoners at night through the roof top smoke stack and tie them to the mantle for them to dry for consumption. Also note that reindeer love to eat these mushrooms, thus the saying that they could “fly.”
Now let’s look at some of the twelve day of Christmas:
The third day of Christmas: A day dedicated to children. Holy Innocent’s Day is associated with the children slaughtered by King Herod. One custom was for parents to beat their children on this day, believing that they would then be spared from further suffering in the year to come.
The fourth day of Christmas: The Feast of Fools was a time when ordinary people escaped from the constraints of everyday life and could behave in an abandoned manner, carrying out parodies of church services and reversing the order of hierarchy for a day. Mostly observed on or near the 29th of December.
The fifth day of Christmas on Dec 30 or Bringing in the Boar: The boar was sacred to the Celts, and was associated with gods. Parading a boar or boar’s head was associated with this day.
The sixth day of Christmas on Dec. 31st, New Year’s Eve or Hogmanay: A custom with an ancient origin to fumigate the house with the smoke of juniper, believing the herb had a magical association with gifts and good fortune.
The Seventh day of Christmas, or New Year’s Day, the Kalends of January: The ancient custom of wassailing was for the blessing of apple trees for a good harvest in the year to come, with the largest tree in an orchard receiving an offering of cider poured over its roots, and bread or cake dipped in cider would be placed in its branches. Shouting and banging metal objects around the tree was supposed to further drive out evil spirits.
“Thus says Elohim: Learn not the way of the nations, nor be dismayed at the signs of the heavens because the nations are dismayed at them, for the customs of the peoples are vanity. A tree from the forest is cut down and worked with an axe by the hands of a craftsman. They decorate it with silver and gold; they fasten it with hammer and nails so that it cannot move. Their idols are like scarecrows in a cucumber field, and they cannot speak; they have to be carried, for they cannot walk. Do not be afraid of them, for they cannot do evil, neither is it in them to do good.” Jeremiah 10: 2-5
