Pagan Origins of Christmas

Nikolaus Krampus

Krampus is a horned, anthropomorphic figure described as “half-goat, half-demon”,[1] who, during the Christmas season, punishes children who have misbehaved, in contrast with Saint Nicholas, who rewards the well-behaved with gifts. Krampus is one of the companions of Saint Nicholas in several regions including Austria, Bavaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Northern Italyincluding South Tyrol, Slovakia, and Slovenia.[2] The origin of the figure is unclear; some folklorists and anthropologists have postulated it as having pre-Christian origins.


Jesus is NOT the Reason for the season as we will prove on this page.

It was God’s plan to send his son, Jesus, to be with us in human form. Most people celebrate his birth this time of year and call it the Christmas season.   That is wrong.  Jesus was born during the time of the Feast of Tabernacles at the end of September or the first of October.

“…astronomer-priests practiced astrology.  They or their kings wanted their children born when the Goddess was close to the Great Sun God.  The presided over sexual festivals in or around their temples at the vernal equinox and ‘harvested’ their children the following winter solstice.  And (like Abraham) some of them were prepared to burn some of their children alive to show their gratitude to the most High.
     They timed their procreation to the movements of their shining goddess as she smiled down on their intercourse from the sky.  They may have believed this behavior was scientific, but to us it is just superstitious nonsense, fascinating as history – but still nonsense………It must have been an easy religion to gain converts for, since as far as we could see it involved taking part in sexual orgies and, for the leaders at least, becoming favorites of the Goddess of the Bright Morning Star and thus destined to be rich and successful.” 

pg. 288, The Book of Hiram, by Christopher Knight and Robert Lomas

On March 25th, women would be impregnated. Since there are 9 months to a pregnancy, and there are also 9 months between March 25th and December 25th, men would impregnate women on Ishtar/Easter Sungod Day on the alter of Ishtar the moon goddess to commemorate the impregnation of Semiramis (Ishtar/Easter) with Tammuz.  Then eight months later on December 25th when these infants were newly born, they would offer up these new born babies on the altar to “Moloch” (Nimrod) the sungod on December 25th…… Mithras the pagan sungod was born on what we now call Christmas day, and his followers celebrated the spring equinox (Most people call Christmas).

To understand the history behind the “Christmas Season” is extremely important to teach us why celebrating the worldly “Christmas” is so wrong and not what we are supposed to do. Almost all of the traditions connected to the season have pagan origins, just as most holidays are truly pagan in nature and history.

We offer Audio teachings of the Apologetics Hour that are programs teaching you how to defend the faith dealing with holidays, false teachings, and the Catholic faith.

Jesus never mentions or commands us to celebrate His Birth.  He wants us to remember His death and return.

And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.
(25) After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.
(26) For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord’s death till he come.
(27) Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.
(28) But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup.
(29) For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body.
(30) For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep.

1 Cor. 11:24-30

In verse 25 we are told to do the communion or Lord’s Supper in “remembrance” of Him.  That is easy to understand.  We are to remember His death till He comes!

In verse 26 we are to “shew” [show] the Lord’s death til he come.  Strong Concordance number G2605 says: to proclaim, promulgate: – declare, preach, shew, speak of, teach.

In this busy season we think about all the gifts we give to everyone, but fail to think about what we could give to Jesus. He wants us to give Him our lives.

Please take time now and confess, repent (be sorry for your sins). Ask for forgiveness and turn away from your sins accepting Jesus as Lord of your life and personal Savior. Start the new year with a new life in Jesus Christ.

It would be the best Christmas present you ever received.

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. {10} For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

Romans 10:9-10

The world has tried to christianize this occult holiday to deceive the whole world and Christians.

This poem contributed by one of our listeners, Bro. Garry Fowler from New York, explains that deception:

Christmas Poem
Because it is that time of year, This verse has come your way
To tell you why I can’t condone This pagan holiday,
“Merry Christmas” is a phrase You’ll hear this time of year.
Expressing heartfelt sentiments, To those you hold most dear
Let’s “keep Christ in Christmas” ,Is another timely phrase
It’s Satan who is glorified — Beware his subtle ways!
“Jesus is the reason for the season”…. Some folks say,
And yet the Scriptures teach, Christ wasn’t born on Christmas Day
For God declares the 25th,Was not our Savior’s birth
Yet saved and unsaved on this day, Rejoice with equal mirth
You can’t mix children of the dark, With children of the light
And expect this fornication, To be pleasing in His sight!
But men love darkness more than light, Is what the Scriptures say
And so they’ve tried to Christianize, This totally heathen day!
Jesus is the way, the truth. No truth is of a lie
So celebrating Christmas time, His “true Church” will not buy
Men call this season holy, Then chock it full of lies,
Can this be of the Holy One? Or just a mere disguise?
When men call something holy, You had best beware —
Satan’s at the heart of it, Countless souls to snare!
Can you believe the Christmas season, With its drunkenness and mirth
Gives honor to our Savior, To recall His holy birth?
Do you believe that every place, That sports a Christmas tree
Abortion clinics, banks and bars, Are Christianity?
Whose birthday did it celebrate, Before our Savior came?
It’s still the same old festival, Someone just changed the name
It’s Nimrod’s birthday party, Always was and ere will be
Think of these things, dear Christian, As you decorate your tree
For long before dear Jesus came, This holiday was kept;
From Babylon into the church, This season slowly crept!
Satan shakes his fist at God — What fools these mortals be,
I told you I’d deceive them, And they would worship me!
Ole Satan takes a Scripture truth, And mixes it with lies;
“You’ll spend eternity with me!”, The old deceiver cries!
But Christ declares from majesty; “I’ve still a faithful few,
Who are awake and will not bow Nor bend their knees to you!”
God seeks those who’ll worship Him, In spirit and in truth
For many, this means we must reject, The lies taught from our youth!
The standard is not set by men, But set by God alone,
And only those who follow it, Will sit upon the throne!
God is One Who won’t be mocked, He’s weary of our ways
Of taking pagan festivals, To call them holy days
They say if we remove the lies, From all this Christmas fun,
We’ll soon end up with nothing, To remind us of God’s Son!
Like Santa Claus, “He’s coming kids”, They never bat an eye
But God sees this for what it is It’s just a Christmas lie!
Santa’s elves make all these toys, And Santa’s reindeer fly
He knows the good girls and the boys — Another Christmas lie.
In case you haven’t figured out, His demons pull that sleigh
And Santa is really Satan, Just spelled another way!
And for the more “religious”, How about some “sacred lies” —
The Savior’s born to mankind, So we’ll all see paradise
Makes no difference how we live, Or what we do and say,
God wouldn’t send a man to Hell, It’s not the Christian way!
Jesus born in Bethlehem, On Christmas long ago,
Freezing shepherds grazing sheep, In the December snow
Christmas hymns and natal scenes, As holy as they seem
Cleverly are part of, This hellish Christmas scheme
“Jingle Bells” and “Silent Night”, Led many souls astray
But now you have a glimpse, Of how God views this heathen day!
Holly, bells and mistletoe, And toasts of Christmas glee,
May leave you with a hangover…. For all eternity!
Candles, lights and Christmas trees, Are pagan to the core,
and Befit not one washed by His blood, But flaunted by the “Whore”,
Don’t fall for this deception, I pray you’ll come to see,
The white horse of Apocalypse Is bearing down on thee.
There is no truth in Christmas, It’s just a pack of lies.
“Presents” from the evil one, With hopes your soul he buys
Of many “False Christs” we are warned, Most in the pulpits be
Beware when they say: “Come, Let’s carol round the Christmas tree”
The “secret” of the Lord’s, With those who fear His holy Name
If you really are a Christian, Cease from this worldly game
Luke 16 tells the story, Verse 13 is specially true,
You cannot serve two masters. Choose today which one for you!
“We’re saved, it doesn’t matter”, You may hear some preacher say;
But all will find out differently, When comes the judgment day!
If you were blind, He could forgive, But since you say you see
The consequences you will reap, For all eternity!
In vanity you worship Him, Traditions for to keep
Protesting barks and oinks I hear, Aren’t coming from the sheep!
In Revelation 3:16 The fate of many lies
Not bold enough to take a stand They yield to compromise!
And then they wonder why He says; “Lukewarm! I’ll spew thee out!”
They’ve let the standard so far down, They may not hear this shout!
Every Word of God is pure, And we must be the same
Let’s seek to reach this standard, And be worthy of His name!
The Pilgrims would not celebrate This date the world holds dear,
They boldly stood against it, Sound in truth, they did not fear!
My friend if you love Jesus, If He reigns within your heart,
Forsake this Christmas garbage, And refuse to take a part!
For one day soon we’ll give account, For all we’ve said and done
Have we stayed steadfast in the Lord? Or bowed to Satan’s “fun”?
If you really want to please your Lord, Refrain this wicked way,
Love and honor His holy Name, Each and every day.
Bow your head and ask the Lord, “Forgive me, I have strayed;
I’ve worshiped Christmas idols, Into their hands I’ve played?”
“Oh, Father, we cry out to Thee, In these last dangerous days
Give us strength and courage, To repent our evil ways!”
If you don’t know the Savior, And you’re sick of all your sin
Just open up your heart’s door, For He’s promised to come in!
Repent! And He will wash your sins, Much whiter than the snow
When you take on His righteousness, To Heaven you will go!
Don’t wait until you’re “good enough”, That good you’ll never be!
Let Jesus save your wretched soul, He sets sin-captives free!
You cannot offer anything, To One Who is all wise
Cain’s offering was evil, Abel’s was the prize
No matter how you are and give, How lavishly you bestow
Won’t keep you from that fiery fate, The lake of fire, you know!
And giving gifts to needy folks, You think rewards may bring,
But all your works mean nothing, ‘less you serve the King of kings!
In Matthew 7 verse 22, And also 23
Show “holy works” done “in His Name”, Can be iniquity
It’s those who hide behind a mask, Doing works for all to see
That may impress their fellow man, But fail to well please Thee
So before you do another work, Before comes end this day
Think long of who is glorified, When Christmas games you play
Jesus Christ, the Holy One, Righteous, Pure and True…
I won’t put Christ in Christmas, To dishonor Him. Should you?

Scriptures to remind you of what can happen to you if you keep on practicing the worldly Christmas holiday!

Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.
(10) If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:
(11) For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.

2 John 1:9-11

That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; {11} And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Philippians 2:10

And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. {11} And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and here was found no place for them.

Revelation 20:10-11

God has offered us Salvation from the same eternal punishment as Satan if we believe in Jesus. He gave his life and paid the price so that we will not meet the same end as Satan, allowing us to obtain eternal life with Him forever.

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. {25} Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live. {26} For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself; {27} And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man. {28} Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, {29} And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.

John 5:24-29
