What is Christmas?
Christmas is a conglomeration of things, none of which has anything to do with any of the others. In addition, they have other problems. For example;
- The thing we call Christmas, or Christ-Mass, is supposedly the celebration of the birth of the Christ-child, Jesus. The only problem there is that Jesus was born in the spring, closer to May than December. OOPS!
- The "Christmas Tree" is a takeoff of the Tannenbaum or "Tree of Fir" celebration. It has nothing to do with the birth of ANYONE! The decorated tree was originally a pagan tradition in Germany's upper Rhine region. Later they incorporated Adam and Eve to the celebration. It was not a part of the original Christmas Holiday. It was added in along with the idea of gift giving. OOPS!
- The story of "Santa Claus, or St. Nicholas was a true story. The anniversary of his death became a day of celebration, St. Nicholas Day, December 6th (December 19 on the Julian Calendar), but NOT to celebrate the birth of Jesus and the celebration was NOT on Dec. 25th. OOPS!
In other words, it's a COMPLETE DELUSION!
Virtually everyone, everywhere on Earth VOLUNTARILY celebrates this mass delusion, Christ-Mass on Dec. 25th, half of them knowing all the while, that it's the wrong day. They have coupled it with a Pagan Fir Tree celebration and tied in a false narrative about the story of St. Nicholas. It is a completely made up conglomerated Holy-Day!
In other words, Christmas is a COMPLETE MASS DELUSION!
So why do we keep doing it? Why not just figure out what day Jesus was really born and celebrate the birth, no tree, no presents, no delusions, just an honest Holy Day on the RIGHT day, for the RIGHT reasons?
Because people would rather carry on being fooled, than admit they are a fool. We voluntarily "go along to get along", even when we don't like what's going on, we don't agree with it and we don't want to comply. We continue to complain about the problems we have while no one is willing to take ANY action to fix them. We suffer under the delusion that;
- You are liable for Income Taxes to the IRS. The truth? Most people do not engage in taxable activity. Wages and salaries are NOT income.
- You need a license to travel behind the steering wheel of a car. The truth? Travelling is a right, "driving" is a profession.
- You need permission to put up a fence on your own property. The truth? As long as you and the neighbor agree, the fence can and will go up. You do not need gov't permission.
- You have to have a Social Security number to work in America. The truth? Social Security is voluntary and there is no requirement in the law to possess, carry, use or maintain a gov't insurance program number or participate in the program at all. A group in California opted out many years ago and are currently enjoying as much as 6 times the amount of retirement benefits that SS would have paid them.
- (YOU) must file a 1040 IRS tax form on April 15th or go to jail. The truth? (YOU) is never properly defined anywhere in the code as a living breathing human soul. It is only FICTIONAL entities that are described or defined as (YOU). (YOU) is not you.
