Merry Whatever

Interesting little post called the Christmas Hoax. So now we can know where words like Baal, Noel, Saturnalia, Yule, etc. came from. That’s right – it’s all sun god worship.

Even Yahweh was supposedly a sun god, born the 25th of Kislev on the Jewish calendar.

The monotheistic co-opting of pagan rite is what we today call Christmas though I do prefer the Saturnalia as it is much more descriptive of the day. For on this day the sun begins vanquishing the night and our daylight gets longer by a minute or two a day.
