    :LOL:

    Reminds me of the theory behind the 'angel on top of the tree'.........

    On Christmas Eve Santa Claus was getting ready for his annual trip. As he pulled his favorite pair of red trousers on, they ripped. So, he had to take them off and put on another pair, which was a bit too tight. He then went to check on the rest of the preparations. The elves were on strike. The reindeer had been at the 'festive spirit' and were in no fit state to drive. Santa was now really pssed off. He went into the kitchen to take a calming drink, and the bottle was EMPTY. Now he was really mad. All of sudden, there was a knock at the door. Santa, in his angry state, ignored it. There was another knock. Santa was in no mood for all of this. When the knock came again, Santa--filled with rage--threw open the door. Standing there was a little angel who said, "Hi Santa! What do you want me to do with this Christmas Tree?"

    Actually, he did not exist. "Christianity" was stolen from the Pagans who were there long before "Christ".

    Jesus Christ did most certainly exist, there are plenty of Roman records to this effect. The real issue is whether you accept the Christian mantra that he was the Son of God, or the Roman idea that he was simply one of about 40 people at that time who claimed to be the Son of God or a prophet of God. The difference being that the following garnered by JC was so large and disruptive to Roman rule in the Palestine that they had to do something about it. Unfortunately they simply made him a martyr and the rest, as they say, is history.

    Yule was the event that Pope Gregory and the renaissance christians took from Paganism for the Christmas celebration. Yule being the festival that celebrated the Winter Solstice. Unfortunately Pope Gregory, when creating the calender we use today, calculated it incorrectly and made it necessary for several days to be removed from the calender in one year in order to correct this error. This correction made Christmas day move from the 21st to the 25th of December.

    Further, at this time, Pope Gregory also removed the New Year celebration on what was now November 1st (All Saints Day) and placed it 7 days after Christmas day. This is why New Year is on January 1st.
