Have you ever thought that MAYBE christmas has NOTHING to do with the Jesus of the Bible? Did you know Christmas originated from the Babylonian pagan celebration of the winter solstice (Birthday of the sungod-Baal). History tells us that It started with Nimrod and the tower of of babel (Genesis 11), which not only stood for man's unity and rebellion against God (Nimrod means - he rebelled), but it was also a place of worship. The pagans used the high places to worship the host of heaven, as in the moon, stars, planets, and their chief god the sun (2nd Chronicles 33:3+Deut. 17:3). The winter solstice, the shortest day of the year, (when the pagans believed the sun god "Baal" received his rebirth because the days started becoming longer) was the holiest of all the pagan holidays. Nimrod, the ruler of babel (later called Babylon, Genesis 10:9-10), died at an early age, so his wife made up a lie, to keep his memory alive. She told that Nimrod had became a spiritual being, Baal the sun god. She said, only by praying through her could you reach Nimrod. She called herself the Queen of Heaven. (Jeremiah 7:19) She said that the sign Nimrod left for her was a full grown evergreen tree, which represented his eternal life. The custom became to set up the evergreen tree in your home, decorate it with shiny ornaments, and wait for Nimrod to leave presents under it, they did this on Nimrod's birthday, which coincided with the winter solstice, the pagan holy day, DECEMBER 25.
