Is Christmas pagan? Many Christians celebrate the birth of Christ on December 25, even though Jesus was almost certainly not born on December 25. Since pagan groups in the ancient world had celebrations that coincided with the Christian celebration of the birth of Christ, are Christians who celebrate Christmas today engaging in pagan activities? In this video, Marie Wood discusses the issue. Merry Christmas!

This is 5 years-old and just came in my feed. Great video they have been holding out on me.
Bring back the Mrs Wood presentations, I like her
I never ever realised there was a decorated Christmas tree in the stable where Jesus was born, thanks for clearing that up.

SHOCKED BY THE BIBLE 2 ( better than 1)
A much more Biblical in-depth perspective… It’s how you worship Jesus. I prefer Passover over Ishtar… To understand is to find the origin. How one follows with the knowledge is the challenge.
You guys are great. Thank you for the beautiful message. God bless you both dear Brother and the beautiful Sister in law and the beautiful kids too. Such a lovely family!
GO to the FATHER not MAN - run from this it isn’t of GOD winter solstice is to do with devil worship RUN this it is MANS ideas RUN
Amen,amen. Merry Christmas
If the church hadn’t lost knowledge of the festivals of the Lord as outlined in Leviticus 23, they would understand what each festival’s prophetic message is. Putting that knowledge together with various Scriptures scattered throughout the Bible like gems, Christians could figure out he was born on one of the falls feasts. Some say Feast of Trumpets, and others say Feast of Tabernacles.
It’s for sure it wasn’t in the winter. The Romans weren’t stupid enough to call for folks to be taxed in the dead of winter when it was hard to travel. Most taxation came right after harvest season when people had money. Yeshua will return during the fall festivals.
You are a great researcher, David. Follow the clues.
There is no need to stick Messiah’s face on a pagan festival. Syncretism has followed the Church’s practices from country to country. It’s time to stop and do the right thing. But it’s awfully hard for truth to triumph tradition. It’s difficult to make my point in opposition to those chestnuts roasting on an open fire and Santa sliding down the chimney with a bagful of presents.
Dear Marie, just for comparison: after the Jews left Egypt, at Mount Sinai under supervision of Aaron they put a statue of a ‘bull’ which was supposed to represent the God that brought them out from the Egyptian enslavement. If you read attentively the book, Exo. 32:4-5, it is evident that the ‘bull’ was an entity that would represent the Almighty God, and bring joyfulness to the believers. Guess what happened afterword?
Exo. 32:4-5 (NKJV) … “This is your god, O Israel, that brought you out of the land of Egypt!” So when Aaron saw it, he built an altar before it. And Aaron made a proclamation and said, “Tomorrow is a feast to the LORD.”
Please notice that in verse 32:5, ‘LORD’ is translated from Hebrew ‘YAHWEH’
Please, also read Jer. 10:2-4 regarding the christmas tree.
Be thoughtful and compare the two situations, Christmas and the offering to Yahweh in front of a bull!
only, Yahushua is believed to have been born around the 23rd september (of the year 5 B.C.). Nevertheless, the remembering of the birth of the Messiah is no pagan tradition, only the date is due to “foreign” influences (see infra)
names of the days: was indeed a Roman influence on the Western culture, names derived from their pagan gods
though, the Roman emperors sought to re-consolidate their governing power in times of early christianity: first by oppression (christians lived in catacombes, were captured & thrown to the lions in amphi theatres), then by granting them gradually more freedoms & rights because the first method did not go so well anymore as christianity grew larger. ultimately, the ruling class relied on the 3rd method by trying to reconcile some elements of their pagan beliefs with christianity ( if you can’t beat them, join them ).
and this is how certain “rituals” in catholocism are similar to, or were influenced by, some pagan ones, derived from Zoroastrianism, Jainism, ancient Sumerian, Babylonian, Egyptian & Greek mythologies…
So, she admits christmas is pagan and therefore christianity is pagan. Now at least, the trinity makes sense.
Pagans invented the greek language so greek is pagan… Fundamentalist, JW, SDA, Muslim and atheist logic.
Gerald Massey, Alexander Hislop and Ralph Woodrow are some of the sources of the “pagan” nonsense.
When the book of Luke clearly shows us the season in which Yeshua was born, you might want to ask yourself why you’re doing the whole December 25th thing.
There is no magic ,
But blessings .
Be guided by The Holy Spirit.
Jesus Christ DDINT celebrated this and nor the disciples, nor the Apostles and nor commanded us to celebrate Christmas!
Christian is the One who Follow The Lord Jesus Christ.
Sorry david. I have a lot of respect for you but this I can’t respect. It’s an insult to pagen beliefs. Calling it faulse. Insulting their gods. Can’t like this.
