Christmas is a pagan holiday: there is no getting around it. Jesus wasn’t born in December. Shepherds don’t hang around their sheep in the fields on those bitter cold Judean nights.
The Christian historian Sextus Julius Africanus had identified the 25th as Christ's nativity. Chronographers reckoned that the world was created on the spring equinox and four days later, on March 25th, light was created.
March 25 + 9 months = December 25th
Christians should call their holiday Merry Immaculate Conception.
In Rome, the Winter Solstice was celebrated many years before the birth of Christ. The Romans called their winter holiday Saturnalia, honoring Saturn, the God of Agriculture [which is why growing trees all year that we toss in the dump after New Years day drives me crazy]. In January, they observed the Kalends of January, which represented the triumph of life over death. This whole season was called Dies Natalis Invicti Solis, the Birthday of the Unconquered Sun. The festival season was marked by much merrymaking.
Do you know who is really celebrating the 2012 Winter Solstice?
Answer: Gaea, Mother Earth. The economic collapse, a consumer’s nightmare, is an environmentalist’s dream.
The 2008 October meltdown, the end of the beginning of the end of our consumer society is an environmental dream. 150 million Americans who feel stress over the prospect of joblessness and homelessness don’t trash the planet by going shopping for useless toxic Christmas gifts. I hear people talking about recycling last-years gifts and some of us, Satan forbid, are making their own! Click here to read why Satan wants us to be consumers.
Steven Kopits, managing director of Douglas-Westwood, estimates that the earth is “benefiting” from the 2008 recession at the rate of 1,500,000 barrels per day. That’s 1,500,000 barrels of the earth’s vital fluids that are staying where they belong: in the Earth. Of course there are some who don’t care about Crusextraction of the earth.

Merry Saturnalia and Happy Winter Solstice
The economic, political and social outlook for 2012 is profoundly negative. The almost universal consensus, even among mainstream orthodox economists is pessimistic regarding the world economy. Although, even here, their predictions understate the scope and depth of the crises, there are powerful reasons to believe that beginning in 2012, we are heading toward a steeper decline than what was experienced during the Great Recession of 2008 – 2009. With fewer resources, greater debt and increasing popular resistance to shouldering the burden of saving the capitalist system, the governments cannot bail out the system.
These days you can’t swing a cat or open your mailbox without being hit by a flood of emails about the memorials, tributes, condolences, and donation sites for the victims of these tragedies that the conspiracy theorists say were created -- not right after the event, but right before the event.
