The symbols of Christmas, their Origins and
Today a Wiccan Practice.
(This page will be completed soon more to come.)
Before I get into the origins of the ancient symbols of Christmas, there are a
few things you should know.
This page is made to educate you about the truth behind the symbols of
Christmas, the original meaning and how the Roman Catholic Church came
to paganise Christianity by introducing these things. Thus the origins have
nothing to do with Jesus Christ, nor is this White Festival ever associated
with a true Christian practice.
This would be the equivilent of celebrating Ramadan and turning it into a
"Christian" version of the Quran justifying it by saying that the name of
Jesus is mentioned in the Quran, that because the name of Jesus is being
used this is makes it ok. However it is not the God of the Bible, and Jesus
of Christmas is not the Jesus of the Bible either.
The Lord says in Ezekiel 20:39, "As for you, O house of Israel, thus says the
Lord God: "Go, serve every one of you his idols--and hereafter--if you will not
obey me; but profane My holy name no more with your gifts and your idols."
When children grow up and learn the truth about Santa, they question
whether, or not, Christ is also a myth?
The Prophet Jeremiah says in Jer 10:3 - 5 "For the customs of the peoples
are futile; For one cuts a tree from the forest,
...The work of the hands of the workman, with the axe..
...They decorate it with silver and gold;...
...They fasten it with nails and hammers So that it will not topple...
They are upright, like a palm tree, And they cannot speak; They must be
carried, Because they cannot go by themselves. Do not be afraid of them,
For they cannot do evil, Nor can they do any good".
In history we read that the Puritans knew the truth about Christmas and
so they said it as a pagan holiday, they understood the origins of it.
I believe that people should study the background of Christmas more in
depth, and, as the bible puts it "....Learn not the way of the heathen....."
The fact is that Christmas lies about Jesus and the Bible, which is contrary
to the indtruction given to us in Colossians 3:9 Lie not one to another,
seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;
We are also commanded in Ephesians 4:25 "Wherefore putting away lying,
speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of
We should preach Jesus not Christmas. Some parents would say that this
is "to take a child's joy away from them". One thing parents don't know,
and children do not understand, is the paganism behind Christmas.
Surely there is some other way of instructing a child using some alternative
means other than celebrating a pagan holiday?
