Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence

Dec 25th is approaching; millions of people around the world will celebrate Christmas, the celebration attributed by Christians as the birth of their lord, Jesus Christ. But do we really know where Christmas really comes from?

Most Christians try to associate Christmas with Jesus and with Christianity and find a way of giving it a spiritual meaning. Are we really sure it has one? There is no truth at all that Christmas was the original celebration of the birth of Christ, as Jesus was not born in the winter. Christmas originates from a Pagan, pre-Christian holiday that was the day Yule, the sex and fertility god, who was honored by the pagans in the northern hemisphere. It was called the Winter Solstice. It was originally a 12-day celebration of binging and orgy. A large log was thrown into a fire and there was either animal or human sacrifices thrown in too, and it burnt for 12 days. Wild binging and drunkenness took place on these days in order to make contact with the spirits. On the Roman pre-Christian side the same time was the celebration of the birth of Dionysus, Attis and Baal, chief male god of licentiousness and fertility. And in Persia it was the birth of the Sun God Mithra, who was also the son of God. During the month long celebration in Rome, all courts were closed and all crimes were allowed. People openly had sex on the street, Debauchery was prevalent and homosexuality too. Even children were allowed to join in to such filth during the juvenilia festivals.

By 270 AD, the emperor Aurelian had made it an official celebration from December 17th to 24th, and an exchange of gifts on the 25th to celebrate the birth of the sun god. This mass orgy later became known as Saturnalia after the God of Excess "Saturn”. When Britain was invaded by the Romans, the paganistic Traditions was brought with them. By the 4th century the Government who could not outlaw the paganistic festival incorporated it into Christianity, this was thought to attract more pagans into the faith, and until that day the birthday of Christ had not been celebrated because every one knew Jesus was not born during the winter. However the Church adopted that date as his birthday and made it coincide with Mithra's. By the 7th Century, Pope Gregory had ordered for Augustine of Canterbury to include all pagan festivals into Christianity. During the Middle ages this Orgy and Party atmosphere had reached fevered pitch, this was now known as "CHRIST'S MASS" which entailed open sex in the streets, rioting and a number of other Paganistic rituals. This got so much out of hand that by 1652 it was outlawed in Britain and went underground; the puritans did their best to have it banned but were overcome, and by 1656, due to popular demand, it was brought back. They were only able to contain it for 4 years. The evil mass wanted their orgy and binging and could not live without it. Charles 2nd restored it in Britain.

The founding fathers of America in 1659, upon arriving on the continent, outlawed these pagan Practices. For 200 years, the clergy battled to outlaw Christmas. But by the mid 19th century American churches were the last remaining hold out against Christmas. However they too ended up defeated. By 1890, all American states had voted to make Christmas a legal holiday.

From the 12 day celebration of the day of Yule the Sex God, emerged the 12 days of Christmas, on which a new sacrifice was offered each day. Some times human in nature.

In order to cover up this horrific celebration, the Christian church placed the first day of Christ’s mass on December 25th and the 12th day on January 6, even though there was no scriptural evidence in the Bible that January 6th was the date the 3 wise men brought gifts to Jesus.
When you wish someone Yuletide greetings you are invoking the power of Yule the sex god, over them.

Mistletoe and Holly too, come from pagan practices and were used as means to ward of evil and wiccans and druids use holly and mistletoe to cast sexual and luscious spell on women and render her helpless and sexually available. So when you call the girl next door under the mistletoe this Christmas remember where this practice came from. Even the Christmas tree in Paganistic times was worshipped and it was cut done brought into the house, decorated and worshipped. King George 1st originally brought this into Victorian England from Germany (he himself was originally from German extraction). German immigrants who moved to Pennsylvania brought the same to America.

However all these pagan practices are mentioned in The Bible and Followers are warned in Jeremiah as follows:

Jeremiah 10:2-5
2  Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them.
3  For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. {customs…: Heb. statutes, or, ordinances are vanity}
4  They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.
5  They are upright as the palm tree, but speak not: they must needs be borne, because they cannot go. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good.

Hey! What about Santa Claus? Where does he fit in? Well, he originated from the Scandinavian God of thunder, Odin. According to the pagan beliefs, he would travel the Skies in the winter solstice and would decide who would prosper and who would die. In England, Odin eventually evolved into father Christmas, who traveled the country, during the Festival of fools, getting drunk, accompanied by his horned Goat (ironically this is the biblical symbol of those who reject the salvation of Christ). According to the Christian Church there was a Turkish bishop in the 4th century called Nicholas, he was known as the patron of seafearing men. Legend has it that he captured the devil himself and chained him and got him to work as his servant. The devil was known as Black Peter, Beelzebub etc He is best known as Ruprecht. Suddenly the image of the Horned Goat turned into that of the devil who followed saint Nicholas everywhere when he visited children, those good children were rewarded with candy and gifts down the chimney in their shoes. The bad Children were carried away by this heinous devil Ruprecht in his sack that we carried around. As time went along the role of Saint Nicholas shifted and Ruprecht was given centre stage. This is where Santa Claus came from. Some say it is a twist of the word Satan.

By this time Santa Claus, AKA Father Christmas, had become a revered figure in the western world. It seems that Father Christmas is an incarnation of God. He could fly in the sky, he is given all the love, even more than God, as he has Knowledge of who is naughty and who is nice. An interesting point is that by making children believe in Father Christmas, one is continually lying to the children and this plants the seed of doubt in the child from a very young age.

For the first 3 centuries the concept of celebrating Jesus birthday never existed. Even through his time on earth nothing about his birthday was even mentioned in the bible. Mary, James, Peter and so on never celebrated his birthday and neither do the scriptures mention anything about doing so si8nce the scriptures do not even mention when he was born.

This article was not written to Mock Christianity, but to point out how much Paganism has infiltrated into Christianity. Also It is to inform those who associate Christianity with the rituals of paganism, and often confuse them to be one of the same.

So before you lift up that glass or party till you drop, sit back and think twice. Would Jesus, Mary, James or any other respectable disciple have taken to partying in such binging and orgying? Do you really think that would have been the way Jesus would have requested his followers to celebrate his birthday? As we see clearly that there is no relation between the true Jesus and Christmas.

So until we meet again I would greet you with the greeting of the prophet “peace be with you”.

Merry Christmas, Mr Lawrence.
