Transcript of THE ORIGIN OF CHRISTMAS

DID CHRISTMAS ORIGINATE FROM THE BIBLE OR PAGANISM?
As found in the Catholic Encyclopedia 1911 under "Christmas" it states the Christmas is just one of the many Pagan Holidays.
Pagan customs centering around January calends gravitated to Christmas even. If you do research you will find that no feast was ever held for Jesus birthday.

The Encyclopedia Americana 1956 edition stated "The Christian usage in general was to celebrate the death of remarkable persons rather than their birth...."
As stated he was born in a barn with animals around him. If it was December the animals would be in hibernation. Jesus would have died because new born babies would not be able to handle the cold.
We also learn that other things that happen during Christmas is also Pagan origin such as the holly the mistletoe and yule log.
Frederick Haskin states "the use of Christmas wreaths is believed by authorities to be traceable to pagan customs of decorating buildings and places of worship at the feast which took place the same time as "Christmas."
