Where did we get Christmas from?… from the Bible, or paganism? Here are some astonishing FACTS which may shock you!
Do you know the origin of the Christmas tree – of “Santa Claus,” – of the mistletoe, holly-wreath – custom of exchanging gifts? Does Christmas really celebrate the birthday of Jesus? Was Jesus born on December 25th? Did Paul, the apostles, and the early Church of the New Testament celebrate Christmas? Do you know what the BIBLE says about the Christmas tree?
Very few know WHY we do the things we do, or where our customs come from! We were born into a world filled with customs.
“Look at what Jeremiah the Prophet says: it warns you not to follow the way of the heathens, for the heathens go in the forest and they cut down a tree and they fastened it down and they deck it with silver and gold. Ain’t that what you do?”
“Santa Claus knocked Jesus out of the top spot and the merchants who don’t even believe in Jesus are busy selling you foolishness making themselves rich and you poor for another year on the basis of a lie, and that’s why they call it X-mas, because you don’t know who it is that you are worshiping.”
“Nimrod is who you are really celebrating on the 25th day of December, you’re not celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ and if you are, you’re making a mockery of it.”

The real origin of Christmas goes back to ancient Babylon. The name ‘Nimrod‘ is Hebrew and derives from ‘Marad’, meaning ‘he rebelled’. … December 25th was the birthday of Nimrod. They celebrated this famous birthday over most of the known world for centuries, before the birth of Christ.
December 25 was highly honored and recognized by Nimrod’s supporters. Many centuries later, it was “Christianized” as being the birthday of Jesus Christ.”
Nimrod was the founder of a religious system that began in ancient Babylon and has always opposed God. The Bible states that Nimrod was “a mighty hunter before the Lord and began to be mighty in the earth”.
Biblical traditions associating Nimrod with the Tower of Babel led to his reputation as a king who was rebellious against God. This heaven defying group of people wanted one government to rule the world and one religion to sway the hearts of mankind. This was Nimrods attempt to defy God and His authority and the ring leader of his scheme was Nimrod.
Nimrod had a plan to weld together and strengthen this evil religious system and so he married his own mother who was Semiramis. She was the first deified queen of Babylon and Nimrod was the first deified king.
Semiramis was as wicked as her son Nimrod, Incest was used here as a basis to unite this newly false religious system. This false system had its sacrificial plan just as God had a plan of sacrifice. But pagan worship required the offering up of human beings, which was often the sons and daughters of the worshipers. A counterfeit holy day was instituted in honor of the sun god, (Sun-day)
After Nimrod’s death, his so-called mother-wife, Semiramis, propagated the doctrine of the survival of Nimrod as a spirit being. She claimed a full-grown evergreen tree sprang overnight from a dead tree stump, which symbolized the springing forth unto new life of the dead Nimrod. On each anniversary of his birth, she claimed, Nimrod would visit the evergreen tree and leave gifts upon it.
Traditionally, a yule log was burned in the fireplace on Christmas Eve and during the night as the log’s embers died, there appeared in the room, as if by magic, a Christmas tree surrounded by gifts. The yule log represented the sun-god Nimrod and the Christmas tree represented himself resurrected as his own son Tammuz. So, our Christmas tree — and our yule log — have tremendous meaning.
The yule log is the dead Nimrod, human ruler of ancient Babylon, who was eventually deified as the sun incarnate, and hence a god. The Christmas tree is mystical Tammuz, the slain god come to life again. This is the true Origin of the Christmas character we know as Santa Claus, who brings gifts underneath an ever-green tree every year on Dec 25th… Which is very similar to the ruler Nimrod and his son Tammuz. Nimrod the sun god reborn.
December 25th was the birthday of Nimrod, and here we have the real origin of the ‘Christmas tree’.
He who controls the past, controls the future.
So much of this world is backwards and inverted. Who is responsible for all of this?
Santa = Satan
Revelation 12:9 King James Version (KJV)
“And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”
Revelation 9 King James Version (KJV)
And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit.
It’s time we face facts! This world is deceived, just as God prophesied it would be
It seems like this story has been told throughout our history with many different players and many different associated religions.
Tower of Babel
Nimrods church had its beginning at Babylon with the construction of the Tower of Babel on the plain of Shinar by the River Euphrates many generations after the deluge. At the time of the construction of Babylon at the Tower of Babel (Genesis 11:1-4), mankind had multiplied and spoken one language.
Cush who was the son of Ham and grandson of Noah (Genesis 10:1, 6), helped to plan with his son Nimrod, a blueprint by which to rule the world of humanity through a wicked counterfeit religion.
Nimrod was the originator of sun worship and founder of Babylon. A Bible translation called the Targum says, “Nimrod became a mighty man of sin, a murderer of innocent men, and a rebel before the Lord.”
The beginning of Nimrod’s plan had its origin at Babel which was later known as Babylon. This city of Babylon with a tower “whose top may reach unto heaven” was built by Nimrod (Genesis 10:8-10; 11:4).
They called the tower “Babel, the gate to heaven,” but God called it what it was which was, “Babel, confusion,” for there God confused the language of the people which forced them to scatter.
Nimrod started the great organized worldly apostasy from God that has dominated this world until now.
Although all these Christian traditions have their roots in Babylonian mystery religion, it does not mean all the traditions are bad, such as giving gifts to one another and spending time with family and the ones you love. These are things that make us feel good, and I’m sure no one has bad intentions on Christmas.
While in the UK, USA and much of the world Christmas Day is December 25, in a surprisingly-high number of countries celebrate Christmas on January 7.
This is because some countries use a different calendar.
In the West we use the Gregorian calendar, originally proposed by Pope Gregory in 1582.
But in much of the former Soviet bloc and Middle East they remain on the Julian calendar, created under the reign of Julius Caesar in 45 BC.
There are 13 days in difference between the two calendars.
