To millions he is the most venerated & adored person in the world. Churches host parties featuring him. Parents speak of his exploits, children long for his arrival. They pray to him. They seek his blessing and his favor. He resides in the north. He travels by night, his chariot drawn by magical beasts. He judges the good & the bad. He writes their names in a book. His vesture is red. His hair his white as snow & when he comes he descends into fire. Who is He? Where did he come from?
The Story of Santa Klaus
Santa Klaus comes from Saint Nicholas, the one who was most nearly in accord with the dim traditions of Saturn as the hero of the Saturnalia.
“The beliefs that Santa enters the house through the chimney developed from an old Norse legend…The Norse believed that the goddess Hertha appeared in the fireplace & brought good luck to the home.”
The Truth About Christmas-
“Druid homeowners would leave a treat consisting of milk & pastries to appease this God who came down the chimney into their fireplace.” But who is he?
Oxford English Dictionary:
“Devil- Besides the name Satan, he is also called Beelzebub, Lucifer…& in popular or rustic speech by many familiar terms as Old Nick.”
Jeremiah 10:2- Learn not the way of the heathen & be not dismayed at the signs of heaven, for the heathen are dismayed at them.
Jeremiah 10:3- For the customs of the people are vain; for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe.
Jeremiah 10:4- They deck it with silver & with gold; they fasten it with nails & with hammers, that it move not.
In fact it was well known among Christian scholars & religious studies professors that Jesus was not even born on December 25th or even in the winter. By aligning Jesus with Christmas it also aligned him with the other Pagan & Egyptian Gods such as Mithra, Krishna & Horus. We saw that fact exploited in Zeitgeist. The holiday of Christmas is actually the celebration of the Roman holiday Saturnalia.
Let us now hear a story about the Krampus.
The Krampus is a demon character which originated in pre-christian traditions. It has the appearance of a goat headed, hoofed demon. The Krampus wore black rags & a mask & drug chains behind him which it occasionally swung at children in his way. The Krampus was dispatched by “Santa” to go out & take the naughty children and put them in his sack which he subsequently would take back to his lair presumably to eat them at a later time.
The reason I bring this tradition up is that it quite clearly depicts the correlation between the mythologies of Santa & those of Satan. Fore who is it that reigns over hell & controls all demons?
