Holiday or Holy Day?

by Wendy
(South Africa)

We downloaded an ebook by the name of this post's title and it has changed our persepctive on Christmas forever.

You can google it and read it yourself.

The main thing to remember is that the Lord tells us to remember His death not his birth as it is in His death that we get eternal life.

He also instructs us to break bread together to remember him. He never says to spend money on gifts and eat and drink on the 25th Dec, which is not even close to when He was born.

Also remember that the 25th of Dec used to be the Saturnala feast of Ancient Rome. You can read about it at wiki. The new Christians did not want to give up their pagan feasts and so the church at the time decided to morph it from the celebration honoring their god Saturn to our Lord Jesus Christ.

With those roots, why would any Christian want to celebrate it? Rather make each day a day of giving and joy and worship to our Lord.
