Origins of Christmas
The origins of Christmas predate Christianity through the Pagan holiday called Saturnalia, which was a week-long of lawlessness from December 17th through December 25th that honored Saturn and included human sacrifice, intoxication, naked caroling and rape. During these seven days, there were no punishments for breaking any laws, according to Roman law — judging from this year's Tax Cut for the Wealthy the Republicans just passed, there still isn’t any consequences for crimes, at least not for the crime of Greed Intoxication.
In the year 4 A.D., Christianity adopted Saturnalia with the hopes that they could convert the Pagans into Christianity by promising that they could still celebrate Saturnalia as Christians. (Imagine how that would work out today). Because Saturnalia did not follow Christian principles, the Christian leaders designated the last day of Saturnalia as the birth date of Jesus.
In 1466, the Roman Catholic Church, under Pope Paul II, forced Jews to run through the city naked as a tribute to Saturnalia. According to author David I. Kertzer, The Popes Against the Jews: The Vatican’s Role in the Rise of Modern Anti-Semitism, “Before they were to run, the Jews were richly fed, so as to make the race more difficult for them and at the same time more amusing for spectators. They ran amid Rome’s taunting shrieks and peals of laughter, while the Holy Father stood upon a richly ornamented balcony and laughed heartily.”
It is important to note that in Astrotheology, Saturn is Satan. The rings we give during a wedding ritual represent the rings of Saturn. The word Saturday originates from the Old English word that means “Saturn’s day.” To this day, many people continue to unknowingly celebrate Saturnalia through their participation in debauchery and gluttony.
According to wiki, the etymology of Christmas stems from the Old English word of Crīstesmæsse, which literally means” Christ’s mass.”
Christmas is derived from the Middle English Cristemasse, which is from Old English Crīstesmæsse, a phrase first recorded in 1038. Crīst (genitive Crīstes) is from Greek Khrīstos, a translation of Hebrew Māšîaḥ, “Messiah”; and mæsse is from Latin missa, the celebration of the Eucharist. The form “Christenmas” was also historically used, but is now considered archaic and dialectal; it derives from Middle English Cristenmasse, literally “Christian mass.” “Xmas” is an abbreviation of Christmas found particularly in print, based on the initial letter chi (Χ) in Greek Khrīstos (Χριστός), “Christ,”,though numerous style guides discourage its use; it has precedent in Middle English Χρ̄es masse (where “Χρ̄” is an abbreviation for Χριστός).
Saturn(alia) In ChurchesOn the ceiling of St. Andrews church on Waterloo Street in East Sussex, there is a painting showing the sun surrounded by stars, a comet, a crescent moon and Saturn. Keep in mind that in astrotheology, Saturn is Satan.
The inner circle of 12 stars most likely represents the 12 apostles surrounding the sun/son, which is another astrotheological reference for Jesus Christ being the SUN of god. The outer circle contains 9 stars, the crescent eclipse of the moon, Saturn and a comet that appears to perhaps be diving toward the sun. The 9 stars plus Saturn may represent the 10 planets in our solar system, if Nibiru is counted as one of those stars. The moon represents the Divine Feminine and the Virgin Mother. The Cologne Cathedral in Innenstadt, Cologne, Germany clearly shows Saturn on their stained glass window:
In A NutshellThe Winter Solstice has historically been the time of birth for all of Earth’s great teachers. Because it is the time of new light for the planet, World Teachers choose this particular time to incarnate because they always bring with them a new teaching. This teaching is a new state of illumination for the people of Earth. Winter Solstice occurs on December 21, the same time that the planetary keynote changes from Sagittarius to Capricorn. At the time of the Winter Solstice, the light currents submerged within the core of the Earth reverse and change course, just like the Sun, which is reversing its southward course and turning northward. A reverse movement of any planetary body creates a powerful force until the new motion or path stabilizes. Therefore, from December 21 to midnight on the morning of December 25th, there is a powerful force field of light and radiation enveloping the Earth.
While people argue over ethnic sensitivity issues between saying “Merry Christmas” versus “Happy Holidays,” the truth dates back much further than its Christian beginnings. The intent of Christmas seems to be the overriding value behind its true, esoteric meaning or its Pagan origin. A symbol or celebration is only as powerful as the intent behind it. While Christmas has become the biggest holiday that supports the corporate world which in turn, lobbies against our civil rights, it also is a time of giving and being with family.
