Come Over to the Dark Side of Christmas

The Festive Season - a time of peace and goodwill to all men. It is a message people in the Western World have grown up with since childhood. Except it is not. It one forgets the saccharine sentimentality and Christian moralizing and scratch beneath the surface, one will find Christmas has very deep pagan roots and an undercurrent of cruelty and violence.

25 December Birth of the Sun

The school nativity plays of Jesus Christ born in a stable in Bethlehem on the 25th of December is familiar to everyone. Except he was not. Nobody knows when he was born. The Bible’s New Testament provides no indication of the date on which Christ was born, while other aspects of the nativity story, such as the Roman census and the Massacre of the Innocents are historically implausible. For the sake of the argument of this article, it is assumed Christ was an actual historical character.
