    Christmas: The Curious Origins of a Popular Holiday
    What do evergreen trees, reindeer, mistletoe and yule logs have to do with the birth of Jesus Christ? And was He really born on Dec. 25? You need to discover the real history of Christmas!

  2. hi Joe… Would like to meet up with you one day and take our friendship offline 🙂

    But to your comments, dun mind me saying… I think you gotta loosen up a little lar… Ha ha…

    Its Christmas- a time to rejoice and celebrate His gift, Jesus Christ to mankind =P

    In fact, everyday for us should be a christmas day with Jesus in our lives and our need to remember and appreciate Him daily. Correct or not?

    But in any case, I wish you a Merry Christmas with His Son’s love and joy, and more blessings for the coming new year!

  3. Why not? Send me an email and we can hang loose for teh tarik at the kopi tiam or something. Haha. last time, i was v gullible & used to believe everything that pp said, now no more. Do u agree truth is truth, & cannot be compromised?

    Correct, everyday for us should be a day with Jesus in our lives and our need to remember and appreciate Him daily. Why only remember Him once a week or once a year?

    I used to wonder why such a major festival like Christmas is never mentioned at all in the bible(OT & NT), neither did LORD Jesus command us to celebrate his birth, so i suspected it of pagan origins. Lord Jesus only said “Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it.” Luke11

    More than any other religious holiday, Christmas is associated with the name of Christ. The word Christmas is short for “Christ’s mass,” instituted by the Catholic Church and continued by many Protestant churches.

    Yet, curiously, the Bible records nothing about the apostles or early Church observing Christmas. History shows that it wasn’t celebrated until hundreds of years after Jesus Christ lived on earth, and long after the apostles had passed from the scene.

    Even more curious are the surprising circumstances under which Christmas came to be observed, and the many aspects of today’s Christmas celebrations—including the date, Dec. 25—that have nothing to do with Jesus’ birth, but do have a lot to do with ancient pre-Christian pagan religions.
