Santa Claus vs Christ… Christmas Hijacked!

Christmas Hijacked. Easter hijacked. I wonder how come no one has bothered to hijack Ramadan, or Hannukah, or Vesak? Imagine if Ramadan was celebrated with lots of candy and ice cream? What if it became a day for exchanging all kinds of books for children, like Dr. Seuss….?   What if prayer and charity were all about gifts given under swords in a formation of a star?

What if Hanukkah was celebrated by Muslims as a day of oppression and victory by lighting torches and setting rooftops on fire?

Because that hijacking is exactly what has happened to Christian holidays. Santa Claus has replaced the day Christ was Born. And in effect Atheists now claim that Christmas should be entirely theirs, no Christ, only Santa and elves. Why don’t they take over Ramadan?

Even more remarkable, according to Pew Research, only 3% of Americans identify as Atheists and roughly 5% identify as Agnostic. And yet, it would seem according to the media that Atheists represent the ‘vast majority’ in the US given the level of lawsuits regarding religious freedom…   By locale percentages of non-God Atheists, San Francisco leads, followed by Seattle, Boston, Providence and Baltimore. By state, New York and California lead in the actual numbers.

So why are we bending to a ‘nothing ideology’ that represents 3% of the US population? And how and where the heck was Santa Claus created?

St. Nicholas was a Bishop originally from what is today, Turkey, whose birth is thought to be sometime in the 300’s. He made pilgrimages to Egypt and Palestine, was persecuted and imprisoned for his Christian beliefs, and ultimately released by Constantine. He was present at the Council of Nicaea wherein the divinity of God the Son was established, as were many chronological consensus, the promulgation of canon law, and the establishment of the first part of the Nicene Creed – Faith.

St Nicholas was said to have given all the wealth he inherited to the poor, helped daughters without dowries, and created the concept of providing sweets to children. Giving selflessly, he became the representation of sainthood, poverty and humbleness.

In Germanic mythology, the pagan god Odin reigned.  Sporting a long white beard, a cloak and hat, he was depicted riding a white steed across the sky and into the underworld. He is said to have given the gift of life to the first two humans, Ask and Embia.

It is thought that “Santa Claus” came about as a mutation of these two – the Christian St Nicholas and the mythological world and underworld of Odin.

In 1812, Washington Irving, a noted writer and political activist, completed his first major book, A History of New York. It was a satirical work making fun of rewritten and edited history, depicting how legends can become truth when the media uses propaganda to say it is so…   As a part of the parady, Irving inserted a dream sequence in which St Nicholas is in a wagon soaring over treetops. He recreates the story of St Nicholas into a idealistic portrayal of a mythological casting.   As a joke.  He was putting down New Yorkers.  In 1881, Thomas Nast, also a political activist, created a cartoon caricature illustration to accompany a poem written by Clement Clarke Moore, “A Visit From St. Nicholas”, which became “Twas The Night Before Christmas”.

This caricature evolved into Santa Claus, and ultimately supplanted Christmas with what was for all intents and purposes – a practical joke.   A satirical parody that showed that vacuous nature of New York and its inhabitants, was then grafted into a political poem that was adorned with an illustration of a cartoon character flying in the sky – this, thereafter became the holiday celebrated in the US.

It was a tremendous lesson that illustrated how easily – a fake legend can be born from bits and pieces of truth.  And how gullible are the masses to adopt and embrace this fakery.

It was all a farce about commercialism and greed – and it stuck, because of New Yorkers, the city that boasts the highest percentage and numbers of Atheists, a town that thought the idea sounded fun and quite ‘fizzing’.   The same city that screams hysterically when the idea of Christ’s birth is integrated into their Santa Claus celebration.

And so, the 97% have now adopted what was intended as a joke, as our national holiday of greed and gluttony because the 3% have decided – it is so. Supported in full righteous indignation by the wealth of The Cabal that is Rothschild.
