Christmas in Puritan New England
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Back in 1969 Anton Lavey wrote The Satanic Bible. On page 96 on the 1976 version, it mentions birthdays:

THE highest of all holidays in the Satanic religion is the date of one’s own birth. This is in direct contradiction to the holy of holy days of other religions, which deify a particular god who has been created in an anthropomorphic form of their own image, thereby showing that the ego is not really buried.

The Satanist feels: “Why not really be honest and if you are going to create a god in your image, why not create that god as yourself.” Every man is a god if he chooses to recognize himself as one. So, the Satanist celebrates his own birthday as the most important holiday of the year. After all, aren’t you happier about the fact that you were born than you are about the birth of someone you have never even met? Or for that matter, aside from religious holidays, why pay higher tribute to the birthday of a president or to a date in history than we do to the day we were brought into this greatest of all worlds?

Despite the fact that some of us may not have been wanted, or at least were not particularly planned, we’re glad, even if no one else is, that we’re here! You should give yourself a pat on the back, buy yourself whatever you want, treat yourself like the king (or god) that you are, and generally celebrate your birthday with as much pomp and ceremony as possible.

After one’s own birthday, the two major Satanic holidays are Walpurgisnacht and Halloween (or All Hallows’ Eve). SOURCE

Take Your Pick. It's All The Same Story
The Greatest Story Never Told


Right On Time
By Ed Arceo

From a report: "To [Christians], Christmas and December are inseparable, but, December 25 already hosted two other related festivals: natalis solis invicti (the Roman "birth of the unconquered sun", and the birthday of Mithras, the Iranian "Sun of Righteousness" whose worship was popular with Roman soldiers. The winter solstice, another celebration of the sun, fell just a few days earlier. Seeing that pagans were already exalting deities with some parallels to the true deity, church leaders decided to commandeer the date and introduce a new festival. Western Christians first celebrated Christmas on December 25 in 336."

Christmas means 'Mass for Christ', Christ's Mass, or Mass of Christ'.

The following was written by Martin Luther. Before leaving the Roman Catholic Church Luther was a Roman Catholic priest.

"The Mass is the greatest blasphemy of God, and the highest idolatry upon the earth, an abomination the like of which has never been in Christendom."

"The Kingdom of Christ is a kingdom of mercy, grace, and goodness. The kingdom of the Pope is a kingdom of lies and damnation!"

"The Roman Church has become the most licentious den of thieves, the most shameless of all brothels, the kingdom of sin, death, and hell. It is so bad that even Antichrist himself, if he should come, could think of nothing to add to its wickedness."

Is Christmas For Believers In Yahshua?
By Robert J. Wells

Christmas Suicides An Urban Myth

The Des Moines Register reported that Mayo Clinic researchers conducted a study of the relationship between holidays and suicides in the local area of Minnesota where the Mayo Clinic is located. Their conclusion? Suicide is not linked to holidays.

Specifically, a study of all reported suicides in Olmsted County during a 35-year period did not find an excess number of suicides just before, during or after Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's or the Fourth of July holidays.

Nor did researchers find a higher suicide rate on birthdays, or three days before or after birthdays.

However, their 1985 work did affirm other studies showing that suicides are most numerous early in the week and least common on weekends. The authors speculate:

"Fewer suicides than expected may occur on weekends and major holidays because it may be easier to repress troublesome thoughts during these times of greater social interaction."

Another study, reported by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, conducted one of the largest studies to examine seasonal trends in relation to suicide rates. This study looked at more than 3,670 suicides and about 3,300 psychiatric admissions to the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Durham, N.C. It found no increase in suicides or psychiatric admissions around the Christmas and New Year's holidays.

Other studies verified that national suicide rates in December and January were either average or below average.

One group of researchers used National Center for Health Statistics data to check suicide rates on specific holidays over the entire decade of the 1970s. On an average day, there were 34 suicides per million people. Holiday rates were 26 for Thanksgiving, 30 for Christmas and New Year's Eve, and below average on every major holiday except New Year's Day.

The New Year's Day rate rose to 41 per million. Some researchers believe the jump occurs because New Year's Day is the end of holiday season, and people get depressed at the prospect of returning to work and everyday life.

Psychiatric visits to hospital emergency departments reach their lowest point of the year one to two weeks before Christmas, and other holidays like New Year's Day, Easter and Independence Day.

The studies conclude that if holiday depression does descend every December, its effects are too minor or it involves too few people to show up in the official statistics.

That's a comforting thought.

Christmas Traditions
A Brief Study on the Origins of Modern Christmas Celebrations
by Kathryn Capoccia

Just using a MacMillan Students Edition of the Concise Webster's New World Dictionary of the American Language used some years ago in junior high school (middle school nowadays) - the following definitions are found:

1} Nick: the Devil; usually Old Nick

Old Nick: the Devil; Satan

2} Santa Claus: Saint Nicholas, Saint Nick

You will note that one thing is missing. When did Nicholas become "Saint" Nicholas or "Saint" Nick? I have researched this question, even to the point of making a call to the Marquette University Library (a Jesuit university in Milwaukee, Wisconsin) and they gave 1087 CE as the year that the Roman Catholic Church canonized "Saint" Nicholas. And today we have people tripping all over themselves to put their kids on the lap of Saint Nick, the Devil and Satan; and just because the Roman Church changed the named of the celebration it did not change the character of it - just as bestowing the title "Saint" upon Satan has not changed his character.

Virginia Wanted To Know The TRUTH!

Yes, Virginia, There is a Santa Claus

This question first appeared in the The New York Sun in 1897, almost a hundred years ago, and was reprinted annually until 1949 when the paper went out of business.

We take pleasure in answering thus prominently the communication below, expressing at the same time our great gratification that its faithful author is numbered among the friends of The Sun:

Dear Editor---

I am 8 years old. Some of my little friends say there is no Santa Claus. Papa says, "If you see it in The Sun, it's so." Please tell me the truth, is there a Santa Claus?

Virginia O'Hanlon

Virginia, your little friends are wrong. They have been affected by the skepticism of a skeptical age. They do not believe except they see. They think that nothing can be which is not comprehensible by their little minds. All minds, Virginia, whether they be men's or children's, are little. In this great universe of ours, man is a mere insect, an ant, in his intellect as compared with the boundless world about him, as measured by the intelligence capable of grasping the whole of truth and knowledge.

Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. He exists as certainly as love and generosity and devotion exist, and you know that they abound and give to your life its highest beauty and joy. Alas! how dreary would be the world if there were no Santa Claus! It would be as dreary as if there were no Virginias. There would be no childlike faith then, no poetry, no romance to make tolerable this existence. We should have no enjoyment, except in sense and sight. The external light with which childhood fills the world would be extinguished.

Not believe in Santa Claus! You might as well not believe in fairies. You might get your papa to hire men to watch in all the chimneys on Christmas eve to catch Santa Claus, but even if you did not see Santa Claus coming down, what would that prove? Nobody sees Santa Claus, but that is no sign that there is no Santa Claus. The most real things in the world are those that neither children nor men can see. Did you ever see fairies dancing on the lawn? Of course not, but that's no proof that they are not there. Nobody can conceive or imagine all the wonders there are unseen and unseeable in the world.

You tear apart the baby's rattle and see what makes the noise inside, but there is a veil covering the unseen world which not the strongest man, nor even the united strength of all the strongest men that ever lived could tear apart. Only faith, poetry, love, romance, can push aside that curtain and view and picture the supernal beauty and glory beyond. Is it all real? Ah, Virginia, in all this world there is nothing else real and abiding. No Santa Claus! Thank God! he lives and lives forever. A thousand years from now, Virginia, nay 10 times 10,000 years from now, he will continue to make glad the heart of childhood.
