Nowhere in Scripture does it mention when Jesus was born. Christmas has nothing to do with Jesus. Christ mas literally means "the death of Christ". And in Scripture the Lord actually looks at the celebration of such a season as an abomination. Here in Scripture is where it is noted where Christ hates the Nicolaitians (promoters of St. Nicholas-Santa Claus) see Revelations 2:6 and 15
the decking of fir trees with silver and gold is an unholy act which the Lord also abhores. See Jeremiah 10:2-4
Christmas honors not the birth of Jesus Christ but honors instead Tammuz. See Ezekial 8:14
the Santa myth has always bothered me. i never perpetuated the silly lie to my son that some old man climbed down our non existent chimney, to give him gifts. why should a stranger get the credit for the gifts that i and his father generously and lovingly chose for him?
The Santa myth began bothering me when I was in the 3rd grade and would get christmas cards from faculty and staff with the words "Merry X-mas" and the other cards reading "Merry Christmas". This not only bothered me but confused me. I would wonder about the "X-mas" part a lot. Of course, when I would ask my folks of such meanings they would have no explanation for the reason X-mas is on my cards. So, throughout the years I felt like a complete dummy for not being able to fully understand this all until I (age 12) discovered it was all a lie. I had to do the searching for myself. It's one thing to keep your kids innocent but its still another when you enslave them with myths and lies like this.
