Original Message Just like Christmas Eve, the origins of Christmas Day are rooted in Babylon. Not only did December 25th mark the ancient Winter Solstice before the Roman shift in time, it also marked the birthday of all pagan sun gods throughout antiquity… beginning with Tammuz of Babylonian fame.

That both ancient and modern pagans embrace the legend that the sun dies and is reborn on the Winter Solstice, which corresponds to Nimrod’s death (c. 2167 BC) and him being reborn as the sun god in Tammuz. One of the ways that they picture this is an evergreen tree springing up into new life from a dead tree stump (Yule Log).

There was also an Egyptian tree custom performed on Ra’s birthday – December 25th. Joseph AmaHura Riverwind shares: “In Ancient Egypt, they decorated trees during the winter solstice and placed a star of Amun-rah or a golden-winged scarab on the top of it.

After Constantine converted to Catholicism, many pagans followed him once they were allowed to maintain their celebration of Saturnalia. They solved the problem of Saturnalia having nothing to do with Christianity by declaring December 25 to be Jesus' birthday, replacing the celebration of the birth of Sol Invictus (the Invincible Sun), but little changed in practice. These practices are blatant violations of God's command in Deuteronomy 12:30-31.

Many of the trappings of Christmas are directly imported from paganism. For instance, the Catholic Church shamelessly welcomed the pagan tree worshippers into their fellowship. They simply called their trees "Christmas trees." Mistletoe is another example of such syncretism. The ancient Druids used its supposed mystical powers to ward off evil spirits and bring good luck. In ancient Norse mythology, mistletoe was used to symbolize love and friendship. The custom of kissing under the mistletoe is a later blending of the sexual license of Saturnalia with Druidic practice
