If you go right back to pagan Germanic tradition that's were Christian holidays got there ideas.

Jesus Birth mentioned clearly in Quran that mother Mary ordered by God's Angle to shake the Palm and dates will all so she can eat, and this is impossible to happen in December!
Jesus "peace be upon him" is a human and a prophet.

There is only one God.

Paganism still surviving by those who elevated humans to the degree of God,

There is only 1 God and 1 religion for all the prophets, it is called Islam.

Even earlier than this, about 2500 years ago, the ancient Turks celebrated on 21st December the birth of the Sun. This was known as Nardugan. They decoraded trees, they had a santa called Ayaz Ata who delivered presents and they celebrated with food and drink with relatives and friends in a festival spirit.

Not everyone celebrates Christmas. Not everyone believes in these stories.

And the giving and joyous attitudes are missing. Most people are selfish and even more selfish during this time of year.

The exploitation, abuse, destruction and consumption of natural or nonhuman animals are horrible.

The garbage from boxes, packages, wrapping paper pollutes the planet.

Those who care about the natural world find this and all other holidays to be hypocritical.

Child of the Most High

Christmas Eve ✨

Silent night,
Holy night;
All is well,
All is right;
Ye all Christians,
I'll give you a sign;
Your Morning Star is here,
Shining bright;
Angel of darkness,
Angel of light;
Deceiving the masses,
All day and night.
Reigning high,
Worship nigh;
Lucifer's here,
Arms open wide;
I am the christ,
Born on this night;
Celebrate joyfully,
I'm right by your side;
You're serving me well,
Observing my lies;
Teaching your children,
All my desires.
Sleep children,
sleep and believe.
Sleep children,
sleep children.

1:00 Actually those are not the biblical origins of Christmas.. Christmas was in the bible and it was not a good thing, as saturnalia and other pagan rituals that where thrown in with it by the catholic church those roman/tyrians of old.10:47 What they are talking about is Saturnalia the roman celebration in which it wasn't a fool they picked it was slaves in which those slaves in which the roles where reversed for 3 days. They neglect to leave this out so i would say its more like propaganda.

I been saying for years Christianity is a syncretic religion. Western Christians want like to criticize people in other countries for infusing their pagan religious practices into their Christians beliefs, but Europe and America does the exact same thing. And all those rituals done in the church, like communion sacraments of eating Jesus flesh and drinking his blood are no different than a lot of pagan rituals. It's all made up.

21st December = Winter Solstice. The day of the least number of daylight hours. The day the Sun “dies”. From this day on, the days get longer.
25th December = “Christmas” Day. The day when the Sun noticeably rises 1° higher in the sky after the Solstice. The “miracle birth” or “resurrection”... of the Sun.
31st December = New Year’s Eve. Despite the Solstice being the shortest day, the latest sunrise of the year happens on 31st December. The last day of the year.
1st January = New Year’s Day. The day from which the morning sunrise starts to occur earlier each day. The first day of the new year.
Throughout human history, these astronomical occurrences have been celebrated. Stone circles and henges in Great Britain show worship and celebration of the Solstice since the Neolithic. Over time occurrences will have had stories, personifications and gods attached them. Astronomy to astrology to religion. From Horus to Zoroastra to Krishna to Attis to Mithra, all personifying the miracle birth of... the Sun. Jesus is just another one of these personified Sun stories.
21st December - 1st January is 12 days. From the Solstice being the first day of celebrations to the day the sunrises start to get earlier, the twelfth day. Yule celebrations lasted 12 days. They’d burn the Yule log for 12 days.

🌹 Warm Christian Greetings! 🌹
▪Jesus did 《NOT》receive 《GIFTS》 of gold, frankincense and myrrh on his birthday!
▪ Jesus did not flee to Egypt when he was a baby.
Jesus was circumcised when he was 8 days old
40 days after giving birth to Jesus, the Mosaic law required Mary to give 1 young lamb as her purification offering and 1 bird as her sin offering.
🐑 + 🐦
Mary was VERY POOR and could not afford to buy a lamb, so the law allowed her to substitute a bird in place of the lamb.
🐦+ 🐦
If Mary had been in possession of the gold, frankincense and myrrh, she would been obligated to buy the more expensive lamb, but instead, the 2 birds she offered met God’s approval. (Luke 2:24)
🌹 Joseph and Mary stayed in Bethlehem about 6 weeks before returning to Nazareth.
▪LUKE 2:39
When they had carried out all the things according to the Law of Jehovah, they went back into Galʹi·lee to their own city, Nazʹa·reth.

littleghostythings 2 months ago

6 minutes in and I'm already seeing misconceptions and incorrect information in this documentary. Mithras was not celebrated by all Romans. Mithra (or Mithras) was a military cult figure worshipped and celebrated exclusively by men, mostly those who were part of the Roman military, sometimes by merchants and slaves and other low ranking individuals, but it was specifically a cult recognized on the roads through Europe and other parts outside of Rome itself. Yes those who followed Mithras did celebrate his birthday on Dec. 25th but it's not like it was something widely known. To this day we don't even know how Mithras was worshipped or why beyond context clues left behind in temples. And even those temples worked in a system of codes and symbolism. Mithras' connection to Christmas ends with the date of worship and the cult itself inspired very very little if anything at all outside it's own practice. It's kind of a red herring to even consider it here as part of the origin of Christmas traditions when literally nothing in Christmas uses anything from the Cult of Mithras.

I'm a Christian, and Christmas has been my favorite holiday for the last 39 years. Most of my earliest and most fond memories I have as a child and young adult are of christmas.
Long story short.... After being led stronger then ever before, by the Holy Spirit over the last few years, I've been led down one rabbit hole after another. Swimming in a sea of theology philosophy dogmas paganism denominations doctrines Gnosticism ancient hebrew/ Judean history and scriptural interpretations 😶 I've realised I wasn't prepared for how much I was going to have to UNlearn!
With that said... My #1 reason for no longer participating in Christs-mas in the very simple but very HUGE fact, that nowhere is it said in His Word to celebrate our Lord Jesus' birthday! But strongly emphasises on remembering His DEATH and RESURRECTION!!!!! As well as the Sabbath. Which is not on Sunday either! Personally, I believe that Christians need to be doing more learning from the Jewish people and the Jewish people need to be doing more learning from Christians. We belong together as one. One House of Israel. I believe that we Christians are merely the lost scattered northern tribes. JESUS is probably more interested in us bringing this 2000 year division of "religions" full circle and made only His people. Like I believe was intended, but for our generation. Oh so much I could go into, so deep it goes.

So basically, Christians back then wanted to be “cool” and they knew people weren’t buying their bullshit, so they just changed the names of preexisting traditions, called them Christian, and forced people to celebrate them or else they can’t celebrate at all, lest they be punished. I was born and raised in the Christian church and what I’ve felt since I was a child is consistent with everything I’ve been shown. If you want to be Christian, fine, but know the history of what you’re practicing. Christmas is fun, but it’s based on a sweetened lie 😂

This is why in the scriptures(Jeremiah 10:1-5) tells us not to celebrate it. It's all vain, made up and bullsht for retail. They even know that the Messiah was not born on that day, it's really the celebration of a false pagan god but since they control the narrative they deceived and lied to the whole world and said December 25 was the Messiahs born day. The Bible explains that he wasn't born in the winter months, that's why the Most High is shutting all of this sht down and bringing the pain. It's him that's bringing all of these plagues and tribulations (Isaiah 45: 7-9) Because people are proud in their folly and wickedness because people refuse to believe and these fake pastors which he calls them "Greedy dogs" (Isaiah 56: 10-12) will not bring out the real truth to their congregation continuing to lead them astray so he's humbling everybody! We are truly in the last of the last days, it's obvious because they're about to do away with greenback currency and bring in the digital currency through the RFID MICROCHIP. Where we will not be able to buy or sell or work or anything without it; they will place it in your hand like scripture(Revelations 13:17) described. Shortly after that is the Great and Dreadful day of the LORD(Joel 2: 28-32).

Christians profess to follow from the judaic tradition. But jesus never fulfilled ANY of the criteria of the messiah. Plus Jews are told NOT TO follow pagan idolatry, such as decorating trees indoors with gold/silver honoring pagan gods. Odd that the christianity of paul (the heretic) goes against all the teachings of the jesus character & the early (judaic) apostles.. who all point to follow the law (torah), and not follow other gods (trinity).. Paul's romanoPagan cult won the long war...

The fact is actually a Nord mythologies pagan holiday, You normally have to make a tribute to Odin and the elven king Oberon. the truth was that the Christians could not murder, slaughter, and dominate the pagan religion, they adapted it to replace the pagan ceremonies with Christian names, that how they invented the birth of Jesus. Coca-cola made fader Christmas.
