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.
