    You know.......every year around this time, I start wondering the same old question.......

    Why are good Christians celebrating pagan holidays? Do they know that Christmas is timed to coincide with the Winter Solstice? Do they also understand that Yeshua was actually born around the end of October?

    How about Christmas caroling? Do you know the origins of that? What about Santa Claus and his flying reindeer? Know what made them fly? Legend has it that it was the Amantia Muscaria mushroom used by Siberian shaman.

    Do they also understand that Christianity was mixed with paganism via the Catholic church and the Roman Empire?

    And the........there's that little thing of remembering exactly who HaShem is, and not worshiping any false gods or idols.

    So, why are you Christians celebrating paganism?

    Christians aren't the only ones that celebrate Christmas.


    And why do you care who does what?

    Isn't this a free country?

    Merry Christmas!






    *I'll look forward to your Easter thread, and why Colored Eggs and the Easter Bunny are evil.

    Most of them do not understand the real history of Christmas.
    "Father forgive them for they know not what they do."

    Ohh wait that is about the fertility rites of spring equinox.

    I kinda find it hypocritical, you know........supposed to be worshiping HaShem and Yeshua, yet you're doing it via pagan rites.

    By the way, Easter is another one of them holidays. I mean, really........what does resurrection have to do with rabbits? And the Sunrise Service that most Christians celebrate? Guess what........that is a pagan ritual as well, known as the Spring Solstice. Also explains why sometimes Easter comes BEFORE Palm Sunday.

    Just like I don't stress about you hippy, wannabe, wiccans...I find it funny that you stress about a group of people that celebrate the birthday of a very holy man and perhaps a divine soul. If you would like the other 99% of us to celebrate a wiccan god, then by all means tell us his/her name and when to strip naked in the moonlight :)
