December 25: The Pagan-Occult Origins of Christmas

”The pains of labor drove her towards Date-Palm, She [Bibi Maryam (Mary)] said:’Oh if only i had died before this or i wish i would have been something forgotten or discarded’ then a voice called out to her from under her: ‘Do not grieve,your Lord has placed a stream under your feet and shake the trunk of the palm towards you and fresh ripe dates will drop down unto you, eat and drink and delight your eyes” [Surah Maryam: Verses 23-26]

25th December, the so-called ‘Christmas’ is celebrated by Pauline Christians and even many people other than Christians celebrate it as the so-called birth day of Prophet Jesus (Qur’anic ‘Eesa Alaihissalaam) but Quran just proves that how wrong it is!!!
Hazrat ‘Eesa Bin Maryam Alaihissalaam wasn’t born in December at all!

During December, Its winter season all over the Northern Hemisphere and its severely cold in certain places including Palestine were Hazrat
Nabiyana Eesa Maseeh Alaihissalaam (Biblical Jesus the messiah) was born.

Look at the Quranic Verses 23 to 26 of Surah Maryam above dear readers, it explains the Holy event of the birth of ‘Eesa Alaihissalaam (Jesus), it explains that Bibi Maryam at the time og delivery was under a
Date-Palm and it was said to her from a voice to shake the Trunk and Fresh,ripe dates (Khajoor) will be available for her and she can eat them.

Now as we all know that Dates are yielded on trees only during Late
Spring till Early Summer (i.e. From Mid February till April),  The DePascha Computus, an anonymous document believed to have been written in North Africa around 243 CE, placed Jesus birth on March 28, then how
come ‘Eesa Maseeh Alaihissalaam (Jesus) took birth on 25th of
December??!!!

Our Islam and Our Quran is enough to separate the truth from the man-made lie! SUBHAN ALLAH!

Then the question arises….

WHAT IS DECEMBER 25TH FESTIVAL REALLY IS??

Roman pagans first introduced the holiday of Saturnalia, a week long period of lawlessness celebrated between December 17-25. During this period, Roman courts were closed, and Roman law dictated that no one could be punished for damaging property or injuring people during the weeklong celebration, In the 4 th century CE, Christianity imported the Saturnalia festival hoping to take the pagan masses in with it. Christian leaders succeeded in converting to Christianity large numbers of pagans by promising them that they could continue to celebrate the Saturnalia as Christians, The problem was that there was nothing intrinsically Christian about Saturnalia. To remedy this, these Christian leaders named Saturnalia’s concluding day, December 25 th, to be Jesus’ birthday however,Christians had little success, however, refining the practices of Saturnalia. As Stephen Nissenbaum, professor history at the University of Massachussetts, Amherst, writes, “In return for ensuring massive observance of the anniversary of the Savior’s birth by assigning it to this resonant date, the Church for its part tacitly agreed to allow the holiday to be celebrated more or less the way it had always been.”

The Reverend Increase Mather of Boston observed in 1687 that “the early Christians who first observed the Nativity on December 25 did not do so thinking that Christ was born in that Month, but because the Heathens’ Saturnalia was at that time kept in Rome, and they were willing to have those Pagan Holidays metamorphosed into Christian ones.” [  The Battle for Christmas: A Cultural History of America’s Most Cherished Holiday , New York: Vintage Books, 1997, p. 4.  ]

Because of its known pagan origin, Christmas was banned by the Puritans and its observance was illegal in Massachusetts between 1659 and 1681. However, Christmas were and still is celebrated by most Christians.

We all know that Present-Day Christianity has been corrupted by beliefs and books, and one of its examples is the celebration of so-called Christmas on December 25th, Actually this Festival 25th of December Pre-dates hundreds of years before the Era of Prophet ‘Eesa Alaihissalaam (Jesus), 25th of December was celebrated in Iran as the Birth of Iranian Deity named Mithras who was a Sun God, it was believed that The
Sun of God took birth during this day, we can clearly see how this
idolatrous belief was mixed within Christianity.

Therefore as we can see, The Romans Celebrated this 25th of December as the day of Jupiter and Saturnalia deities before the Era of ‘Eesa Alaihissalaam, Now when Roman Pagan-Christian King Constantine took Christianity as the religion of Roman Kingdom he put the Birth of Eesa Alaihissalaam for the Idolatrous festival of 25th of December! This is one example of the corruption of the Islam of Eesa Alaihissalaam.

The Origins of Christmas Customs

Just as early Christians recruited Roman pagans by associating Christmas with the Saturnalia, so too worshippers of the Asheira cult and its offshoots were recruited by the Church sanctioning “Christmas Trees”. [7] Pagans had long worshipped trees in the forest, or brought them into their homes and decorated them, and this observance was adopted and painted with a Christian veneer by the Church.

Bible itself prohibits Christmas trees! But Pagan-Christians are blind!

”This is what the Lord says: Do not learn the practice of (Idolatrous)
nations nor get terrified by the signs in the sky, for the customs of the (Pagan) peoples are worthless. The cut a tree out of forest and the craftsmen carves it with his chisel, they adorn it with Gold and Silver, and Hammer it with Nails below so that it doesn’t fall” (Jeremiah1:verses 2-4)

The Origin of Mistletoe

Norse mythology recounts how the god Balder was killed using a mistletoe arrow by his rival god Hoder while fighting for the fem
ale Nanna. Druid rituals use mistletoe to poison their human sacrificial victim. [8] The Christian custom of “kissing under the mistletoe” is a later synthesis of the sexual license of Saturnalia with the Druidic sacrificial cult.[9]

The Origin of Christmas Presents

In pre-Christian Rome, the emperors compelled their most despised citizens to bring offerings and gifts during the Saturnalia (in December) and Kalends (in January). Later, this ritual expanded to include gift-giving among the general populace. The Catholic Church gave this custom a Christian flavor by re-rooting it in the supposed gift-giving of Saint Nicholas (Miles, pp. 276-279)

The Origin of Santa Claus

Nicholas was born in Parara, Turkey in 270 CE and later became Bishop of Myra. He died in 345 CE on December 6 th . He was only named a saint in the 19th century.

Nicholas was among the most senior bishops who convened the Council of Nicaea in 325 CE and created the New Testament.

In 1087, a group of sailors who idolized Nicholas moved his bones from Turkey to a sanctuary in Bari, Italy. There Nicholas  supplanted a female boon-giving deity called The Grandmother, or Pasqua Epiphania, who used to fill the children’s stockings with her gifts. The Grandmother was ousted from her shrine at Bari, which became the center of the Nicholas cult. Members of this group gave each other gifts during a pageant they conducted annually on the anniversary of Nicholas’ death, December 6.

The Nicholas cult spread north until it was adopted by German and Celtic pagans. These groups worshipped a pantheon led by Woden –their chief god and the father of Thor, Balder, and Tiw. Woden had a long, white beard and rode a horse through the heavens one evening each Autumn. When Nicholas merged with Woden, he shed his Mediterranean appearance, grew a beard, mounted a flying horse, rescheduled his flight for December, and donned heavy winter clothing.

In a bid for pagan adherents in Northern Europe, the Catholic Church adopted the Nicholas cult and taught that he did (and they should) distribute gifts on December 25th instead of December 6 th.

In 1809, the novelist Washington Irving (most famous his
The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Rip Van Winkle ) wrote a satire of Dutch culture entitled Knickerbocker History . The satire refers several times to the white bearded, flying-horse riding Saint Nicholas using his Dutch name, Santa Claus.

Dr. Clement Moore, a professor at Union Seminary, read
Knickerbocker History , and in 1822 he published a poem based on the character Santa Claus: “Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, in the hope that Saint Nicholas soon would be there…” Moore innovated by portraying a Santa with eight reindeer who descended through chimneys.

The Bavarian illustrator Thomas Nast almost completed the modern picture of Santa Claus. From 1862 through 1886, based on Moore’s poem, Nast drew more than 2,200 cartoon images of Santa for Harper’s Weekly. Before Nast, Saint Nicholas had been pictured as everything from a stern looking bishop to a gnome-like figure in a frock. Nast also gave Santa a home at the North Pole, his workshop filled with elves, and his list of the good and bad children of the world. All Santa was missing was his red outfit.

Conclusion

We can clearly see that whatever people today who call themselves Christians are following are clearly Idolatrous “Paganized” practices and it has no basis in the true beliefs of God and His Prophets!. This is how Christianity Has been Corrupted for centuries!, They don’t even follow what is said in their own books but follow what their pagan ancestors did!.
