Christmas Unwrapped: The History of Christmas
Christmas abounds with traditions, from neighborhood carolers to lovingly decorated trees, but from where did all these rituals emerge? This enlightening program looks at the origins of the Western world’s most popular Christmas traditions — from the significance of December 25th and its relationship to winter solstice to the enchanting legend of Santa Claus and Prince Albert’s 1841 unveiling of the Christmas tree.
What a fantastic documentary about the true tradition of Christmas and where all its roots came from. Centuries before Jesus was born and Christ’s mass was celebrated, 12/25 was celebrated as the birthday of the Sun God, Mithra or in other places, Tammuz.
This lists some great facts about where the traditions of Yule Log, Yuletide, Evergreen trees, Holly, Mistletoe, Ornaments, Egg Nog, Santa Claus, and more…
In 1652 Christmas was actually outlawed as it was a time of lawlessness by tradition.
Christmas truly is a pagan holiday and 12/25 is considered the birth of the Sun God, NOT the Son of God. I wonder what God thinks of trying to Christianize a pagan holiday?
