Well that's not 100% accurate.  They picked Dec. 25 for that reason but the hoilday itself ORIGINALLY was to celebrate the birth of our saviour.

Holiday is originally invented by church, and by nothing else. Before Christ there were many "gods" who died on cross and were born by virgin mother, but CHURCH brainwashed all, and it a sin to even question yourself.


<^> *burn witch, buuuuurn!!!* <^>

Correct me if I'm wrong but I'm under the impression that a virgin getting pregnant by gods was an pagan idea, which I read in my last year's notes about facts, mistakes and flaws that can be found in the bible.

Ok, you can throw tomatoes at me now, I waiting.

St. Patrick's Day as well as Valentine's Day were originally Christian Saint Days that have since been commercialized. December 25 was chosen because of it's proximity to the Winter Solstice during which the pagan God is born to the Maiden form of the Goddess. Pagans invented Halloween, regardless of where they were geographically. The Christian church did in fact choose the dates for many of their festivals based on the timing of the pagans since it was easier to get people to convert which is why many symbols seem to overlap. One of the best examples is Easter which is known to wiccans as Ostara or Eostra & is a time of rebirth & fertility which is symbolized by pagans using eggs & rabbits.

I know that there are a lot of americans here on board, and I dont want to offend nobody, but, you have to be well aware that your country is only like 400 years old, and you all came from Europe and other old parts of world, and you took the customs and  old believes with you to the new world. I know that this maybe uppseting you, but it is the truth, you already had all that when you left the old continent.

   What you americans did to Halloween was nothing more than comercialize all that and make the biggest money maker (along with the red Santa that Coca-cola invented)...

I dont know why its so hard for some of you guys to admit the importance of the old world. Its not that you met all teh fairytale creatures when you got to teh promised land, you already had all that from your old home.

And Im sure that many of you dont really know the full lineage of ancestors. I know that I dont. Or am I wrong?


Not all of us are this way. I have no need for such stupid things and I am pretty much stuck in the beliefs and realm of my ancestry (arrogant Irish bastards they they were  :lol:)  Actually tracing my lineage has been rather exciting. It takes a while but I have been able to go back quite far. No kings or lords or cool stuff like that though lol. But yeah I agree with you,  Nina americans are all a bunch of powder puff sissies that look at the world through rose colored glasses and hear only the poisonous words of their failed leaders.
Nothing brings you closer to reality

Irish, ey? Cool! I planed to go to Ireland some couple of years ago, strange how my people are so connected with Irish and every Irish who came here or met my poeple say we are very much alike, maybe it has something to do with celt tribes that were all around Europe... anyways, what I wanted to say is that I know its not all Americans are like that, but unfortunately, many times I got proof of their ignorance, and sometimes it offends other people, cause it seems like some of you think you are the oldest and smartest in the world, when my old grannys house is older than your country.... that makes me kind of mad.... but that is only your leaders fault, and not peoples.... I know that ordinary people in USA have bigger issues than stupid terrorist fraud, so I kind of feel sorry for you, cause your government spends more money on killing strangers in foreign lands, that they spend on education and health in own country. That is really sad..... I also know that the figure of non literate people in USA reaches almost 30% which is a shame, and to see the number of homeless and poor is devastating....


I hope you people will get the thing in your hands, same as you did in ī70. Power to the people!!!!



I hope Loki wont be mad at me for this post, he warned me not to be rude to Americans.... so I really hope I wasnt... or was I?
