Christmas comes from two words i.e Christ + Mass. In the 4th Century, the Roman Emperor Constantine proclaiming to be the head of the church began to introduce pagan practices into the church in order to win over the masses and money. Christmas was a long week of pagan celebration dedicated to Saturnalia the Romans sun-god from Dec 17th thru 25th. All kinds of debased things were practised.

The Christmas tree had its origin in Asherath cults.

The Mistletoe had its origin from the Druids.

The giving of gifts had its origin from the Romans.

Santa Claus is a mixture of Bishop Nicholas from Pasqua Epiphania, Italy and the god Wooden from Germanic tribes.

Santa Claus is an anagrammatically concealed word.

SANTA = SATAN


CLAUS = LUCAS, LUCIFER

Santa is always dressed in red robe. Rev 12:3, 9 “the red dragon”

Santa lives in the North Pole. Isa 14:13 “Lucifer sits on the north”.
