With Christmas approaching I’d like to tackle the false notion that Christmas is a pagan holiday that Christians shouldn’t celebrate or engage in. This belief is frequent in some fringe Protestant groups, Atheists, as well as the Hebrew Israelite movement, but the place that popularized it the most is a film called Zeitgeist. I also seek the explore how we got some of the Christmas customs such as cutting down the tree, etc. May my words be edifying and in truth to the best of my ability. In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
