Christians celebrate the birth of Jesus at Christmas time. They exchange gifts in honor of the “greatest gift ever given.” They say: " Jesus is the Reason for the Season !!" and speak of putting the Christ back into Christmas .
The problem is, Yahushua the Saviour was never “in” Christmas to begin with! While Scripture does not supply the Saviour’s birth date, most scholars agree that He was born in the fall, not December 25!
To discover the god being honored at Christmas, it is necessary to trace its pagan origins. Celebrations on December 25 began shortly after the flood with the birth of Tammuz as the reincarnation of Nimrod. Today’s Christmas traditions come directly from ancient Babylon and pagan Rome.
