The Shocking Pagan Origin of Christmas

by John D. Keyser

Should Christians Celebrate "Christmas"?

What is the true origin of Christmas? Where did it come from? Did you know Yeshua the Messiah was born nowhere near December 25, but that was the "birth day" of the sun- god, "Sol Invictus" or "Mithras"? Did you know December 25 was the concluding day of the pagan winter festival called the "Saturnalia"? Where did "Santa Claus" come from? The "Christmas tree"? How did this pagan feast become connected with "Christianity"?

Although the whole world celebrates Christmas as a "Christian" holiday, including millions of non-Christians, is Christmas really "Christian" at all?

Consider this fact: Look high and low throughout the pages of the Bible, and you will find not one word of "Christmas" being celebrated by any of Yehovah's people! It is not even mentioned once! Neither the Messiah nor any of his apostles ever observed this holiday, nor the New Testament Church.

Yet on the other hand the pagan, heathen world observed this day for thousands of years before the Messiah was even born!
