On the 5th day of C.H.R.I.S.T.M.A.S satan gave to you: Xmas decorating.. to make the darkness behind it all look more "bright"..
In 1851, Pastor Henry Schwan of Cleveland OH appears to have been the person responsible for decorating the first Christmas tree in an American church. His parishioners condemned the idea as a Pagan practice; some even threatened the pastor with violence. But objections soon dissipated after the delusion set in..
Now how can a PASTOR condone such acts? A pastor should know the Prophet Jeremiah condemned it as Pagan, the practice of cutting down trees, bringing them into the home and decorating them. Of course, these were not really Christmas trees, because "JC" was not born until centuries later, and the use of Christmas trees was not introduced for many centuries after his birth. ✋Sooo wait the Celebration of Xmas Apparently was celebrated BEFORE JC’s BIRTH. 😲 ...ya don't say..
Apparently, in Jeremiah's time the "heathen" would cut down trees, carve or decorate them in the form of a god or goddess, and overlay it with precious metals. The evergreen fir tree has traditionally been used to celebrate winter festivals (pagan and Christian) for thousands of years. Pagans used branches of it to decorate their homes during the winter solstice, as it made them think of the spring to come.The first decorating of an evergreen tree began with the heathen Greeks and their worship of their god Adonia, who allegedly was brought back to life by the serpent Aessulapius after having been slain. The ancient Pagan Romans decorated their "trees with bits of metal and replicas of their god, Bacchus [a fertility god]. They also placed 12 candles on the tree in honor of their sun god".. Their mid-winter festival of Saturnalia started around middle if December..and often lasted until a few days after the Solstice.
In Northern Europe, the ancient Germanic people tied fruit and attached candles to evergreen tree branches, in honor of their god Woden. Trees were viewed as symbolizing eternal life. This is the deity after which Wednesday (Wodensday) was named. The trees joined holly, mistletoe, the wassail bowl and the Yule log as symbols of the season
🤔 Do you even know why you top it off with a star that shine so bright...🎄
💠A four-pointed star is usually styled to resemble a cross and is used as the "star of Bethlehem" or "natal star." The cross shape reminds us both of Jesus' birth and the purpose for which He was born.
🌟The five-pointed star is the star of Bethlehem. Shaped roughly like a human being, it represents "Jesus" incarnation.
