Christmas/Nimrod/Babylon/SunWorship/Winter solstice
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

"Faithful men of God who knew and loved the Scriptures of truth fought against the mingling of paganism with the name of Christ. They were valiant in opposing the entry of Christmas and its festivals among the believers." — RE Becker, The Truth about Christmas: Flee from Idolatry

"The early Christians discouraged the use of evergreen decorations in Christian homes and assemblies, because their display had long been associated with heathen festival," — Campbell, The Story of Christmas

"To the pagans, the Saturnalia was fun. To the Christians the Saturnalia was an abomination in homage to the disreputable god who had no existence anyway." — Earl Count, 4000 Years of Christmas: A Gift from the Ages (1997)

"On your|pagans| day of gladness, we (Christians) neither cover our doorposts with wreaths, nor intrude upon the day with lamps...We are accused of lower sacrilege because we do not celebrate along with you the holidays... "—Tertullian (c. 197, W),

Jeremiah 10:2-4

King James Version

2 Thus saith the Lord, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them.
3 For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe.
4 They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.


Deuteronomy 12:2

King James Version

2 Ye shall utterly destroy all the places, wherein the nations which ye shall possess served their gods, upon the high mountains, and upon the hills, and under every green tree:
