The Truth about Christmas

christmas_world_ball, Xmas, christmasHello Truth Seeker,

Fucking Jingle bells time again. So I’m the Grinch that stole Christmas. That is one of my favorite movies. I’m mean huh? But the truth is that no where in the bible does it say people must celebrate Christmas. Seriously I’ve read the book thoroughly, infact much more so than many Christians. And I can’t find it any where.

So how did all this spreading of “good will” at this time of year come into being? According to the encyclopedias Christmas means mass of Christ and came from the Roman Catholic Church. But they didn’t get it from the bible. (Hey I consider myself spiritual and very connected to my God which is neither Christian, Muslim, Jewish or male. Yes I know I’m going to hell and have been deceived by light bearing demons. But give me credit for knowing my stuff.)

“Natal Day” as explained by the Catholic encyclopedia, refers to Origen who was the Catholic father way back when, stated “In the Scriptures, no one is recorded to have kept a feast or held a great banquet on his birthday. It is ONLY SINNERS (like Pharaoh and Herod) who make great rejoicings over the day in which they were born into THIS world.” So those hedonist pagans, the Egyptians were the first to throw birthday parties.

Seriously, no where in the New Testament do the apostles make mention of celebrating Jesus’s birth. The first Christians did not celebrate the birth of Christ. Christmas was introduced in the 4th century after Christ. By the 5th century the Romans ordered Christmas to be celebrated on the day of SOL’s birth who was a roman sun god. As their never was any real evidence of when Jesus was really born.

On closer examination in the bible, Jesus could not have been born in December. Hear me out: December was a cold month even in Judea. Even in the bible itself you can find evidence that the sheep boys and their flocks were not permitted to hang about in the fields at night after the rainy and cold season had begun. Ezra 10:9, 13 and Song of Solomon 2:11. In those days, the sheep were kept out the whole summer, much like the cows here in Austria. They are led from the mountain pasture to their sheds to protect them from the cold in winter. In early spring they are taken to the pasture again where they stay the whole summer.

I’ve even read that Orthodox Christians maintain that if God wanted people to celebrate the birth of Jesus he would not have hidden the date.

So basically the pagan celebration was taken over by the Roman Church. Well intentioned Christians and commerce gladly play the Christmas game. And Christmas is spreading – the Chinese are eager to participate in our western rituals.
The question then is if Christmas was introduced by the Roman Emperor Constantine who over took it from unbelievers, where did it really originate?

According to the bible it originated in sin city – Babylon. Noah’s direct descendant Nimrod was the dude that introduced a man ruled government rather than letting god rule. Ancient writings say that Nimrod was so perverted he married his mom whose name was Semiramis. Nimrod died before his time and left his mother feeling pretty bereft, so she introduced the idea that Nimrod was surviving as a spirit being. She claimed that out of a tree stump a fully grown ever green tree sprung which to her symbolized the new life of Nimrod.

Now this is all very evil as true Christians say most spirit beings other than God, Jesus and a few good angels are demons and should not be listened to or celebrated.

But back to Nimrod – after the ever green tree appearing Nimrod’s mother went on to say that he came and left her gifts on December the 25th which was his birthday. So one could say that is the origin of the Christmas tree, if any of this is even true. Interestingly the bible says in Jeremiah 10:2-6 “Thus saith the Lord, learn not the way of the heathen…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. They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.” Sounds to me like a description of a Christmas tree.

So Semiramis became the Queen of Heaven and Nimrod became the Son of Heaven in Babylon. They became objects of worship many generations before Jesus entered the scene.

By time the pagan Romans were getting into trendy Christianity the old beliefs and traditions were passed along cloaking them with Christianity.

All the rest of the stuff that goes with Christmas like Christmas tree, mistletoe and Santa Claus are just ancient beliefs that have been passed along.

Kissing under the mistletoe was a practice to celebrate the death of the old sun and birth of the new sun at the winter solstice. Why not? It’s about as good a reason as any to celebrate if you ask me.

Even Santa Claus is not Christian, it’s a derivative of the name St. Nicholas (we still call him that here in Austria which is predominantly catholic) St. Nikolas was a bishop of Myra and apparently he gave presents to three daughters of an impoverished citizen on the 6th December. Here In Austria kids still put out their slippers to receive a gift on the 6th. (Except my kids who I have never lied to)

As for giving presents the bible says the 3 wise men gave presents to the new born infant and not to each other. No where does it say to begift anyone.

I don’t particularly care for Christmas. My kids have always known the truth – I never lied to them about father Christmas. I give them what they want when they want if I deem in contributes to their self development and happiness. They don’t seem to have a problem with it.

In my not so humble opinion every day is a good day to CELEBRATE LIFE. I believe in giving just because it feels cool and not because of a season.

Thanks for reading up until here and I can’t wait to read your comments.
