The Puritans deemed Christmas the Catholic invention of Advent which was the feast of St. Martin of Tours celebrated forty days before Christmas , starting November 11th . The Parliament of Scotland by 1640 had abolished the observance of Christmas . The celebration of Christmas in the United States was banned in Boston from 1659 to 1681 . The New England Puritans had associated Christmas with paganism and idolatry and considered it an abomination and a time of wasteful and immoral behavior . British parliament had enacted a law in 1647 which abolished the observance not only of Christmas , but Easter also , whose origins are also pagan .
The Anglo-Saxons viewed Christmas as a time of feasting and referred to the holiday as " midwinter " or " nativity " , ( meaning birth ) , celebrating witchcraft's winter solstice , Yule , of the dates December 20th to December 23rd . For them , this meant the " sun's rebirth " celebrating witchcraft's Oak King , the Sun King worshipped thousands of years prior in Egypt . Yule's other demonic deities were Sun Gods , Mother Goddesses and Triple Goddesses , all still worshipped today through the dominant pseudo-Christianity worldwide . Yule is one of witchcraft's eight Sabbats , the Roman festival of Saturn , called Saturnalia , and is known as Dies Natalis Solis Invicti of the Mithras cult , the winter solstice , the birthday of the unconquered sun, not Son . This is the time witches consider , more appropriate for casting divination spells . Evergreens and Christmas trees were adaptations of pagan tree worship of the old testament . Saint Boniface in the 17th century A.D. dedicated a fir tree to Thor , picking it because it had a triangular shape symbolic of the Thrinity . Witchcraft's popular circle is still utilized in Christmas wreaths . Evergreen boughs for witches symbolized aspects of the Divine , but not the Christian Divine . Holly and mistletoe were displayed in ho9mes to invite witchcraft's " Nature Sprites " inside homes . The Yule log , traditionally Ash , was considered an herb of the " Sun " , bringing more light into the Solstice . Another of witchcraft's use of the Yule log was the " sprang " , ( I had mentioned in an earlier blog ) , made of oak or pine and held three candles which represented the Satanic " deity " . Evergreen decorations were forbidden in Puritan meeting houses because the Puritans knew that the basis for Christmas was that of Roman Saturnalia's gift exchange and feasting . The Christmas fir tree was understood to have been dedicated to Rome's Mithra and Saturn , which represented Tammuz mentioned in Ezekiel 18: 14 ; the fertility god of agriculture and vegetation , represented by witchcraft's " Green Man " portrayed in the movie " A Christmas Carol . " Mithra's birthdate was supposedly December 25th , the winter solstice . Obelisks were symbols of Mithra , masonry's " Sun-god . " In witchcraft , the serpent represents the sun symbol also , as do the circle , the Celtic cross , Cabalism's concentric circles , the disk , and the Masonic point within the circle .
Gift giving and feasting had been the Jewish practice of Purim on the fourteenth day of the month Adar . It was also commonly practiced in Rome at the celebration of Saturnalia and was based upon the tradition of St. Nicholas , whose pagan counterparts are Father Frost , Father Christmas , Santa Claus , etc . Saint Nicholas was Turkey's 4th century Bishop of Myra . A feast dedicated to him was November 6th . He traditionally appeared in red bishop's attire . Drawings of him may still depict witchcraft's occult cross on his mitre . Father Christmas was associated with drinking and merrymaking , as in the Biblical , " The people sat down to eat and to drink and rose up to play ." The Jewish practice of Purim will be repeated at least once more when Revelation 11:8's two olive trees are hewn down in Jerusalem .
Alice Bailey's , and the United Nations' world worship will be that of witchcraft , evident now in most churches .That Satanic worship is nothing more than these Bible verses repeated ; " Take ye therefore good heed unto yourselves ; for ye saw no manner of similitude on the day that the Lord spake unto you in Horeb out of the idst of the fire : lest ye corrupt yourselves , and make you a graven image , the similitude of any figure , the likeness of male or female , the likeness of any beast that is on the earth , the likeness of any winged fowl that flieth in the air , the likeness of any thing that creepeth on the ground , the likeness of any fish that is in the waters beneath the earth : and lest thou lift up thine eyes unto heaven , and when thou seest the sun and the moon and the stars , even all the host of heaven , shouldest be driven to worship theem , and serve them , which the LORD thy God hath divided unto all nations under the whole heaven . " ( Deuteronomy 4 : 15 - 19 ) . ... And he put down the idolatrous priests , whom the kings of Judah had ordained to burn incense in the high places round about Jerusalem ; them also that burned incense unto Baal , to the sun , and to the moon , and to the planets , and to all the host of heaven . " ( Job 31 : 26, 27 ) ... And he brought me unto the inner court of the LORD'S house , and behold at the door of the temple of the LORD , between the porch and the altar , were about five and twenty men with their backs toward the temple of the LORD , and their faces toward the east ; and they worshipped the sun toward the east . ( Ezekiel 8 : 16 ) . Today the Lord is still broken with their whorish heart , ( Ezekiel 6:9 ) , as all around the world Jewish temples still reject Christ , facing the east in their hearts .
Witches purport that Dionysus , the Greek god of wine was born of a virgin mother on December 25th . Masonry's Osiris is identical with Dionysus , the Greek " son of God . " As with Jesus , December 25th and January 6th are dates in the Dionysian myth that represent the winter solstice . Masonry's Isis , the Egyptian mother goddess , the " Great Virgin " predates the birth of Christ supposedly . Dionysus was supposedly known as the god of gods , the king of kings , the lord of lords , the prince of princes , a Savior and Father . According to witchcraft , Ra, Masonry's " Sun-god " was worshipped on December 25th . It may be that the sixth of January was the date of the celebration of Christ's birth until the fourth century A.D. I researched his birthdate fairly in depth and cannot come up with any reliable proof of his birthdate , though the detail of records kept at the time of his birth regarding family history were astounding .
One witch on the net stated that Jewish sun worship is still logical " when we read at Psalms 84 :11 ; " For the Lord God is a sun and a shield . " The Israelite reverence for the sun was so intense that by Jeremiah's era ( c. 625-565 B.C. ) , the Jewish kings , princes , prophets and general inhabitants of Jerusalem continued to be portrayed as loving , serving and worshipping the host of heaven , including the sun and moon . " The author apparently is looking forward to the false Messiah , as he
anticipates the " solar appellation " , the " sun of Righteousness " , or , " Sun of Justice " , and " the bright morning star . " The author also says ; " Suppose that the sun is the god of the Christians " , thus inferring the Masonic false Christ of Horus and Osiris . The Copts believed this and portrayed the images of Mary and Jesus the same as Isis suckling her Son Horus . Medieval paintings portray this propaganda . This is Gnosticism . Constantine had incorporated practices of witchcraft into church rituals which can be evidenced by true Christians today . CBN's , and TBN's Pentecostal and ecumenical groundwork has made the arrival of Osiris desirable . Satan's Santa , who smokes a pipe , who is omniscient , who can fly through the air with animals whose horns are revered by witches , and whose elves are representative of witchcraft , more represents the longtime Gnostic Christmas now celebrated .
