TRIVIA: CHRISTMAS STARTED IN 400CE

Rome adopted Christianity around 300CE. The convergence from the Pagan religions to Christianity included inventing Christian Holidays to coincide with Pagan holidays. Christmas was one of these inventions. At first, both holidays were celebrated as one to avert war and civil unrest. The church had Christmas mass and the Saturnalia was celebrated at home.

With the invention of a God man Jesus came the religious invention of his birth day. Because there is no record of his birth day in the two different stories in Mathew and Luke it was decided that the Pagan day of December 25 would be used to over shadow the Pagan Dec. 25 holiday.

With time the church religion through sheer force, violence, threats and death, pushed out the Pagan holidays all together leaving only the Christian holidays. The term “pagan” was adopted to mean “godless” or “heathen” by the Christians and of course they had to convert or be exterminated.

About sk1951

I think people are very sincere about their faiths and beliefs. It is their good heart and intentions that makes them vulnerable to deceptions and deceit. My life was indoctrination from birth into religion and for 40 years I was completely absorbed by it. But my insatiable desire for knowledge led me away from it. Then I went through an anger phase of hurt over my stupidity. Then I lost my anger about churches, gods and religion because it was really about belief. Then I realized that belief was simply a tool used to obfuscate twist and hide Truth for power and control by the Authoritarians of everything from science to medicine to religion to governments. Now I simply try to share the experiences I progressed through. What people make of it I have no control over. But my heart and intentions are pure and free of deception, agenda or beliefs. Just Truth as I have come to know it.
