Christmas ( meaning ” Christ’s Mass ” )
. Christmas is an annual festival commemorating the birth of Jesus Christ, observed most commonly on December 25th as a religious and cultural celebration among millions of people around the world. While the date of Jesus’ birth is unknown by mid 4th century, the Western Christian Church had placed Christmas on December 25th, although some churches celebrate on the Gregorian calendar, currently corresponds to January 7th.
Many popular customs have origins in pagan festivals, the Christmas tree is a pagan tradition and ritual which included the use of evergreen boughs, and an adaptation of pagan tree worship; Saint Boniface (634-709), who was a missionary in Germany, took an axe to an oak tree dedicated to Thor and pointed out a fir tree, which he stated was a more fitting object of reverence because it pointed to heaven and it had a triangular shape, which he said was symbolic of the Trinity.
All religion is created by man, and it was at the Council of Nicaea the first council in the history of the Christian church that was intended to address the entire body of believers. It was convened by the emperor Constantine an unbaptized catechumen who presided over the opening session and took part in the discussions, to resolve the controversy of Arianism, a doctrine that held that Christ was not divine but was a created being. The conclusion of that meeting was Jesus is divine and therefore GOD.
So the Jesus thing is just one of the mental scars of slavery we have been brainwashed with and refuse to let go, it has become second nature now. We are now enslaving our own minds.
HORUS of Egypt ” The slave masters is the enemy of the slave, if the slave prays to the same GOD as his master he is praying to the GOD that enabled the slave master to enslave them. Therefore that GOD is the enemy of the slave. ”
JOMO Kenyatta “When the missionaries came, The Africans had the land and the missionaries had the bible. they taught us to pray with our eyes closed. When we opened them, they had the land and we had them bible.” ( COLONIALISM.)

RASTA So ini sons and daughters of Garvey burn religion, for religion is a tool of oppression and religion is still used to oppress us promising all the wealth when we die and go to heaven, skism we know and understand GOD is living. Only we can free our minds.
Because gift-giving and many other aspects of the Christmas festival involve heightened economic activity, (good business) the holiday has become a significant event and a key sales period for retailers and businesses.
The economic impact of Christmas is a factor that has grown steadily over the past few centuries in many regions of the world, and is the reason why this custom still survives.
Maybe brothers and sisters if we ago pick up pagan traditions we should just pick up our own African tradition even a new one like Kwanzaa it still has the elements of family coming together, giving of cards etc. .
