Is Christmas a Pagan Holiday?
FROM R.C. Sproul Dec 07, 2012

Tweet this:
I CAN’T THINK OF ANYTHING MORE PLEASING TO CHRIST THAN THE CHURCH CELEBRATING HIS BIRTHDAY EVERY YEAR.—R.C. SPROUL

"I wish we had more annual festivals. The Roman Catholic Church, for example, celebrates with great joy the Feast of the Ascension every year. Some Protestant bodies do, but most do not. I wish we would celebrate that great event in the life of Christ when he was raised up into heaven to be crowned King of kings and Lord of lords. We celebrate his birth; we celebrate his death. I wish we would also celebrate his coronation." —R.C. SPROUL

From R.C. and the entire Presbyterian Church in America, we wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas!

In Conclusion

Someone that was saved shared the gospel with you, so we shouldn’t be ashamed of doing the same for others that are lost. All this bickering here over the semantics about Christmas day about that day not being the actual day Jesus Christ was born or other such arguments are just other forms of legalism that gives you an excuse to keep your mouth shut at this time of year thinking you are doing a service for God. So think about it, what are you really ashamed of this Christmas, the day or event or both to not want to celebrate Christmas with other Christians?

Don't forget the real reason for the REAL reason for the season!!!

Merry Christmas to all …

Continuing
The toys and Christmas material are now 50 to 75% off as well as most other seasonal merchandise,so isn’t this a great time to buy cards, gifts, toys, etc for next Christmas? One very good reason that giving gifts to others in rememberance of Jesus Christ is not wrong because it makes the world aware of His birth and life. It also presents a great opportunity to share the Gospel or the Good News with the lost because there is NO other religion that the whole wide world acknowledges the birth and resurrection of their leader. (i:e Buddha, Mary, etc. have tombs) And on top of this, their leader‘s birth is what the whole worlds time table is based on, (BC=Before Christ and AD=After Death!!!So if Jesus Christ was a myth and did not do the miracles that the Bible claims and did not rise from the dead, do you really think that this time frame would have been allowed to continue all these 2,0000+ years in a fallen world if God did not want it to be so?

Merry Christmas means Christians are taking one day out of the year to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Saviour. Jesus said, “ For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and [in his] Father's, and of the holy angels.” Luke 9:36 Con

"Church was replying to a letter from a young reader, Virginia O'Hanlon, who asked if Santa Claus really existed... According to the Encarta encyclopedia, the nickname Kris Kringle evolved from the German words for Christ child, Christkindl."

Therefore, we should NOT be celebrating Santa Claus’s or Kris Kringle’s birthday the same day as we do Jesus Christ, because he is the Counterfeit version of Jesus. Santa Claus should be observed on his own given day on Dec. 31/Jan.1st, since that is the last day of the holiday season known as New Year’s eve and day. So when someone says Happy Holiday’s they would then be referring to Santa Claus and when they say “Merry Christmas” they would be referring to Jesus Christ.

The advantage of this is in the gift giving. Those giving gifts on Christmas Dec.24/25 should be doing it in remembrance of the Christ child and NOT for the counterfeit Kris kringle. Those giving gifts on Dec. 31/Jan.1 would be doing it in the spirit of Santa Claus aka Kris Kringle aka St. Nicholas. On New Years eve people make some resolutions for themselves that they never keep and soon break, so in essence they are deceiving or lying to themselves. Since the Bible says Satan is the father of lies, how very appropriate to acknowledge him in this way. Cont

SANTA CLAUS
Born: ?
Birthplace: The North Pole
Best Known As: Jolly toy-delivering Christmas figure
Also known as: St. Nicholas; Kris Kringle; Father Christmas
Santa Claus is the mythical figure who delivers toys to children around the world each year on Christmas Eve. According to legend, Santa lives at the North Pole and oversees a toy workshop run by busy elves. Each December 24th, on the eve of the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ, Santa is said to fly around the world delivering his toys in a sled pulled by eight reindeer: Blitzen, Comet, Cupid, Dancer, Dasher, Donder (or Donner), Prancer, and Vixen. (A ninth reindeer with a shiny nose, Rudolph, was introduced in Gene Autry's 1949 country music hit "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.") The name Santa Claus was derived from Sinterklaas, the Dutch term for the ancient Christian figure of Saint Nicholas.

The Santa Claus myth was popularized in America by the 1823 poem "A Visit From Saint Nicholas," attributed to Clement Moore. The poem begins "Twas the night before Christmas". In the early 1860s cartoonist Thomas Nast drew Santa as a round, bearded man in a red suit, an image that stuck... An 1897 editorial by Frank P. Church in the New York Sun coined the famous phrase "Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus". C
