Pagan Holidays Exposed

All holidays are evil as well as your birthday celebration. The Most High doesn't recognize any of these pagan holidays. Many peolpe across the world celebrate these evil holidays, Christians and other so called religions. In fact, the Most High doesn't even care about these holiday's or blesses them, so why do we? In truth, the Most High curse them rather than honour them. Did you know where the word holiday comes from? Holiday comes from the word holy-day. There is nothing holy about these holidays in America. I am going to give you proof that we shouldn't celebrate these evil holidays. The true holy days are in Leviticus 23rd chapter of the bible.

Christmas:
Christ-Mas is the so called celebration of our Messiah (Jesus ) was born. In Romans it was a celebration of his death, not of his birth. In fact the Bible tells us that the Messiah was born in the springtime, not the winter. In fact the date of Christ-Mas (Dec 25) is related to the winter solstice in the Northern hemisphere. The day of December 25th is a pagan satanic holiday Nimrod the ancient Babylonian ruler and his son Tammuz is worshipped on that day, as the sun god. The Christmas tree is a pagan ritual. Nimrod the god of the Babylonians and Assyrians and his son Tammuz were symbolized in the form of palm trees after their death. Christmas and the Christmas tree was set up to hide a pagan satanic holiday. This is nothing but idol worship in your house and its an abomination to the Most High, As stated in Jeremiah 10:1-5 and Deuteronomy 7:25-26 .

Nimrod / Baal - Sun Worship Babylonian Origins of Christmas



Xmas TRUTH!! Nimrod's the Lord of Christmas {Santa = Satan}


Jeremiah 10:1-5 Hear ye the word which the LORD speaketh unto you, O house of Israel:
2 Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them.
3 For the customs of people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of a forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the ax.
4 They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.
5 They are upright as the palm tree, but speak not: thy must needs be borne, because they cannot go. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good.

Vain- Without real significance, value, or importance; baseless or worthless.
Borne- To hold or remain firm under.

Precept to Jeremiah 10:2:
Leviticus 20:23 And ye shall not walk in the manners of the nation, which I cast out before you: for they committed all these things, and therefore I abhorred them.

Precepts to Jeremiah 10:5:
Psalms 115:4-7 Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men's hands.
5 They have mouths, but they speak not: eyes have they, but they see not:
6 They have ears, but they hear not: noses have they, but they smell not:
7 They have hands, but they handle not: feet have they, but they walk not: neither speak they through their throat.

Habakkuk 2:19 Woe unto him that saith to the wood, Awake; to the dumb stone, Arise, it shall teach! Behold, it is laid over with gold and silver, and there is no breath at all in the midst of it.

(In verse 3 it says "For the customs of people are vain ". What this verse means is that, what people are doing have no real significance, its pointless. Also in verse 5 it says "thy must needs be borne " . This is clearly referring to a Christmas Tree stand. See images below.)

Deuteronomy 7:25-26 The graven images of their gods shall ye burn with fire: thou shalt not desire the silver or gold that is on them, nor take it unto thee, lest thou be snared therein: for it is an abomination to the LORD thy God.

26 Neither shalt thou bring an abomination into thine house, lest thou be cursed thing like it: but thou shalt utterly detest it, and thou shalt utterly abhor it; for it is a cursed thing.

Abomination - feeling of disgust, hatred, loathing.

(In verse 25 it says that "for it is and abomination to the LORD thy God". This verse is letting us know that the Most High hates such an act when one bring a Christmas tree in their House. In verse 26 it says "Neither shalt thou bring an abomination into thine house, lest thou be cursed thing like it:" This is a very clear statement that means, simply do not bring these false images and deities into your house, unless you want to be cursed like them.)

MISTLETOE
The mistletoe of the sacred oak was especially sacred to the ancient Celtic Druids. On the sixth night of the moon white-robed Druid priests would cut the oak mistletoe with a golden sickle. Two white bulls would be sacrificed amid prayers that the recipients of the mistletoe would prosper. The custom of using mistletoe to decorate houses at Christmas is a survival of the Druid and other pre-Christian traditions." It was yet another instance where Christmas has strong ties with false religious, pagan practices.

THE YULE LOG
The custom of burning the yule log began with the ancient Scandinavians who once a year burned a huge log in honor of their god Thor. After they became Christians, they made the yule log an important part of their Christmas ceremonies. This was burned in honor of their child-god and the next day after the burning of the log they would set up a tree decorated and surrounded with presents. This represented new life.

I think it is obvious that Thor is a heathen god and any ties to him are ties to false religion.

HOLLY
This time of year for the pagans was to mourn their "Holly king" who died around the 21st of December. Also the Teutonic peoples placed holly and other evergreens inside their houses to protect from evil spirits and bad winter weather.

SANTA CLAUS
And what of Jolly St. Nick? He is an innocent happy, jolly being right? Names after patron saint St. Nicholas right? Well, the only two things that modern St. Nick can claim from the real St. Nicholas are his name and his kindness to children. From there, the rest of the myth and tradition was added to mostly from the pagan god Thor. Thor lived up north at the top of the world in the Polar Regions. He battled ice and snow to come to our parts of the world. He had a sleigh that was driven by goats. He doled out punishments to bad children and presents to well behaved children. (Knows if you have been naughty or nice)

Two of his reindeer are named after pagan gods. Cupid (god of sexual love) and Donner (god of thunder). Many pagan cultures worshiped a hearth god who wore red, entered the house through the chimney, blessed those who pleased him and cursed those who didn't. Food was left to appease this god. Taiwan still has a hearth god that appears on the 24th day of the 12th month to report the status of mankind to the heavens. Leaving the milk and cookies to St. Nick under the tree dates back far enough that Ezekiel warns against it...

Ezekiel 6:13
That they offered sweet savours to their idols under every green tree."

WREATHS
The wreath was a pagan tradition indicating the circle of life: Birth and death. Also the Teutonic peoples placed holly and other evergreens inside their houses to protect from evil spirits and bad winter weather

Many Christians when faced with these truths state that it is okay though because they don't use these things for those purposes, that the item is now Christian, that we took it over and changed it's meaning. They use them to worship Jesus and celebrate His birth.

To this I say, "Why don't you wear a pentagram necklace, say that it reminds you of the star of Bethlehem or hang upside down crosses in your house saying that you are upside down without Jesus and it reminds you of that. Or start talking to Jesus through trees, after all since God is omnipresent then he is in the Trees." That argument is insane.

Your friends would think you were nuts and in some churches you would not even be allowed to enter the doors. Probably rightly so. This is preposterous to many of you because they are clearly pagan symbols, yet you accept the use of these other pagan symbols simply because other Christians were weak and fell before you. We can not take a symbol that is from satan and put a mask of Christianity over it and call it good.

The Story Of Nimrod, As It Relates To Christmas And Easter

December 25th was the birthday of Nimrod. It is from this myth, created by a woman living in an incestual relationship with one of the most wicked men that ever lived on the earth, that we get the original Christmas tree.

Nimrod built the tower of Babel, the original Babylon, ancient Nineveh, and many other cities. He organized this world's first kingdom. The name Nimrod, in Hebrew, is derived from "Marad," meaning "he rebelled." From many ancient writings, considerable is learned of this man, who started the great organized worldly apostasy from God that has dominated this world until now. Nimrod was so evil, it is said he married his own mother, whose name was Semiramis. After Nimrod's untimely death, his so-called mother-wife, Semiramis, propagated the evil doctrine of the survival of Nimrod as a spirit being.

She claimed a full-grown evergreen tree sprang overnight from a dead tree stump, which symbolized the springing forth unto new life the dead Nimrod. On each anniversary of his birth, she claimed, Nimrod would visit the evergreen tree and leave gifts upon it. December 25th was the birthday of Nimrod. This is the real origin of the Christmas tree. Through her scheming and designing, Semiramis became the Baby Babylonian "Queen of Heaven," and Nimrod, under various names, became the "divine son of heaven."

After her death, Semiramis was worshipped as the "Queen of Heaven", and Nimrod, under various names, became the "divine son of heaven".

MOTHER AND CHILD
Through the generations, in this idolatrous worship, Nimrod also became the false Messiah, son of Baal the Sun-god. In this false Babylonian system, the "Mother and Child" (Semiramis and Nimrod reborn) became chief objects of worship. This worship of "Mother and Child" spread over the world. The names varied in different countries and languages. In Egypt it was Isis and Osiris. In Asia, Cybele and Deoius. In pagan Rome, Fortuna and Jupiterpuer. Even in Greece, China, Japan, Tibet is to be found the counterpart of the Madonna, long before the birth of Christ!

Thus, during the fourth and fifth centuries, when the pagans of the Roman world were "accepting" the new popular "Christianity" by the hundreds of thousands, carrying their old pagan customs and beliefs along with them, merely cloaking them with Christian-sounding names, the Madonna and "Mother and Child" idea also became popularized, especially at Christmas time. Every Christmas season you'll hear sung and chanted dozens of times the hymn "Silent Night, Holy Night," with its familiar "Mother and Child" theme. We, who have been born in such a Babylonian world, reared and steeped in these things all our lives, have been taught to revere these things as holy and sacred. We never questioned to see where they came from -- whether they came from the Bible, or from pagan idolatry!


Easter:
Easter is a so called annual Christian festival in commemoration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ, observed on the first Sunday. This is False and a lie. Easter in fact comes from the words Eastre, Eastre, Ashtoreth, Astarte, or Ishtar. Nimrod and his wife Semiramis. They made many satanic and wicked religious practices, like, Idol worship, satan worship, human sacrifice, astrology, sun, moon, and star worship, and witchcraft. In truth the Easter holiday is really a celebration of the resurrection of Semiramis son Tammuz. The Re-incarnation of Nimrod in the springtime. One must ask the question, where did Easter Egg come from? The Egg is one of the many false idols of the ancient Babylonians. The egg for them symbolized fertility and Semiramis, the false pagan goddess of fertility spread this pagan custom to many nations and peoples. Where did the Easter rabbit come from? The rabbit is another symbol that represents fertility. Remember rabbits don’t lay eggs.

Where did “Easter” get its name? Where did the concept of an Easter egg and bunny originate?



Jeremiah 10:1-2 Hear ye the word which the LORD speaketh unto you, O house of Israel:
2 Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them.
Precept to Jeremiah 10:2:
Leviticus 20:23 And ye shall not walk in the manners of the nation, which I cast out before you: for they committed all these things, and therefore I abhorred them.
(We shouldn't celebrate these pagan holidays because these holidays are from the heathen.)

1 Samuel 7:3 And Samuel spake unto all the house of Israel, saying, If ye do return unto the LORD with all your hearts, then put away the strange gods and Ashtaroth from among you, and prepare your hearts unto the LORD, and serve him only: and he will deliver you out of the hand of the Philistines.

Precepts 1 Samuel 7:3:

Genesis 35:2 Then Jacob said unto his household, and to all that were with him, Put away the strange gods that are among you, and be clean, and change your garments:

Judges 2:13 And they forsook the LORD, and served Baal and Ashtaroth

The Easter Rabbit or Hare
Easter Bunny and EggsThe rabbit is well known as a sexual symbol of fertility. In various parts of the world, religions which developed from Babel also associate the rabbit with periodicity, both human and lunar (Egypt, China, etc.). As you may remember, the Mother Goddess Easter (Semiramis) is associated with the Moon. In other words, the Easter bunny symbolizes the Mother Goddess. Annual Spring time fertility rituals are associated worship of the Mother Goddess and Tammuz, the reincarnation of her husband Nimrod.

The Easter Egg

Most children and families who color or hide Easter eggs as part of their Resurrection Sunday tradition have no knowledge of the origin of these traditions. Easter egg activities have become a part of Western culture. Many would be surprised and even dismayed to learn where the traditions originated.

“The egg was a sacred symbol among the Babylonians. They believed an old fable about an egg of wondrous size which was supposed to have fallen from heaven into the Euphrates River. From this marvelous egg—according to the ancient story—the Goddess Astarte (Easter) [Semiramis], was hatched. And so the egg came to symbolize the Goddess Easter.”[11]

The idea of a mystic egg spread from Babylon to many parts of the world.[12] In Rome, the mystic egg preceded processions in honor of the Mother Goddess Roman. The egg was part of the sacred ceremonies of the Mysteries of Bacchus. The Druids used the egg as their sacred emblem. In Northern Europe, China and Japan the eggs were colored for their sacred festivals.[13]

The egg was also a symbol of fertility; Easter (Semiramis) was the goddess of Fertility. The Easter egg is a symbol of the pagan Mother Goddess, and it even bears one of her names.

Thanksgiving:
The whole concept of thanksgiving derived from the English Colonialist on July 30, 1621. Governor William Bradford, issued a proclamation calling for a Thanksgiving celebration feast, to commemorate the gathering of the first harvest, which lasted three days. The Most High condemns anyone who celebrates Thanksgiving, or goes to a Thanksgiving Day parade, or eats a Thanksgiving dinner in the name of the Most High. Thanksgiving was a prelude to the massacre and slaughter of the North American Indians (Tribe of Gad) Infants were torn from their mother’s breast and hacked to pieces. The victory seemed a sweet sacrifice and they gave praise to their ('their god'). The ‘pilgrims’ didn’t want religious freedom they wanted wealth. The ‘pilgrims’ were murderers, rapists, thieves, child molesters, homosexuals, whores, prostitutes, drunks, and insane lowlifes, who brought syphilis, gonorrhea, tuberculosis, small pox, etc. They infected the North American Indians with these diseases and killed millions of them. These ‘pilgrims’ who are white Europeans. In conclusion to all of this the pilgrims (so-called white man) came to steal their land, kill and to destroy the The North American Indians and they celebrate it with Thanksgiving.

John 10:10 The thief cometh not but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
Precepts John 10:10:

Matthew 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

Acts 20:29 For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.

2 Peter 2:1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.

You must also remember that in the autumn of 1621 when Plymouth governor William Bradford invited neighboring Indians to join the Pilgrims for a three-day festival of recreation and feasting and that's when they the ‘pilgrims’ had instead murdered, tortured, butchered, and enslaved them. The "pilgrims" used words like "we come in peace" and "we love you" to fool the Indians. It was all a lie. The "pilgrims" (so-called white man) stole their land.) Take a look at what John 10:10 says.

Micah 2:1-2 Woe to them that devise iniquity, and work evil upon their beds! when the morning is light, they practise it, because it is in the power of their hand.

2 And they covet fields, and take them by violence; and houses, and take them away: so they oppress a man and his house, even a man and his heritage.

Devise - To contrive, plan, or elaborate; invent from existing principles or ideas.

Iniquity - A grossly immoral act; a sin.

(In verse 1 it mentioned the words devise and iniquity and that's exactly what the pilgrims did to the North American Indians. And in verse 2 it reads "and take them by violence; and houses, and take them away, and it goes on to say even a man and his heritage.

Halloween:

The word Halloween Originally comes from medieval England's All Hallows' Eve (Old Eng. hallow="saint"), the eve of All Saints' Day. Its pagan origins can be traced to the Celtic festival of Samhain. A night for witchcraft. The souls of the dead were supposed to revisit their homes on Samhain eve, and witches, goblins, black cats, and ghosts were said to roam about on that night. The night was also thought to be the most favorable time for divinations concerning marriage, luck, health, and death. This pagan observances influenced the Christian festival of All Hallows' Eve and that's when they started to celebrate this pagan holiday on the same day. This holiday was then introduced into the United States in the late 19th century.

Samhain - October 31, Halloween; a day of celebration for Wiccans and other pagans.
Witchcraft - The art or practices of a witch; sorcery; magic.

Divinations - the practice of attempting to foretell future events or discover hidden knowledge by occult or supernatural means.

Galatians 5:19-21 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,

20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,

21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

This holiday is still associated with evil spirits and the supernatural. It is also still celebrated by children in costume who gather candy by ringing doorbells and calling out 'trick or treat," "trick" referring to the pranks and vandalism from this pagan holiday.

Prank- A trick of an amusing, playful, or sometimes malicious nature.
Vandalism- Deliberately mischievous or malicious destruction or damage of property.

HALLOWEEN EXPOSED
When you hear the word "halloween" what images appear? What "spirit" is invoked at the
whisper of Halloween? Halloween openly promotes death, devils, witches and flagrant "appearances of
evil" (1 Thess. 5:22). Halloween leaves most people scratching their heads questioning, "How and where
did Halloween come from"? This article unearths the hellish tomb of Halloween to exhume its sinister
"covenant with death and hell."

Halloween began over 2,000 years ago among the Celts and their pagan priests called the Druids. The
Druids are, without question, history’s king of the occult. Witchcraft, Satanism, paganism and virtually all
facets of the occult acquire instruction from the Druids. From the popular jack-o’-lantern, trick-or-treat,
costumes, to the pranks, ghoulish ghosts, demons, goblins and witches – Halloween owes its morbid birth
to the Druids.

Halloween—the day itself is of Druidic origin. (Myers, Robert J. Celebrations: The
Complete Book of American Holidays, p. 258)

The mystic rites and ceremonies with which Hallow’en was originally observed had their
origin among the Druids. . . (Douglas, George William. The American Book of Days, p.
566)

The Druids celebrated two special nights of the year: Beltane and Samhain. Beltane took place on May 1
and marked the birth of summer. Samhain occurred on November 1 and signified the death of summer.
Samhain, a night celebrating death and hell, was the Druids most important ritual. It was a terrifying night
of human sacrifices. And it was the original Halloween.

The Druids believed, during Samhain, the mystic veil separating the dead from the living opened. The
Druids taught these roaming spirits loosed on Samhain went searching for a body to possess. The
frightened Celts would masquerade as demons, evil spirits and ghosts, hoping to convince the roaming
evil spirits, they were another evil spirit, and leave them alone. The Celts also prepared meals as "treats"
to appease the evil spirits from "tricks" or malicious acts; hence our custom of "trick or treat." The Druids
performed horrifying human sacrifices and other vile rituals during Samhain. Let there be no doubt—
Samhain night was a terrifying "covenant with death, and with hell." And let there be no doubt – Samhain
was the original Halloween night.

All histories of Halloween inevitably wind back to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain. . .
(Skal, David J. Death Makes a Holiday: The Cultural History of Halloween, p. 20)

Halloween had its origins in the festival of Samhain among the Celts of ancient Britain
and Ireland. (Encyclopedia Britannica 2005 "Halloween")

Halloween can be traced directly back to Samhain, the ancient Celtic harvest festival
honoring the Lord of the Dead. (Thompson, Sue Ellen. Holiday Symbols and Customs, p.
251)

The rituals of the Druids reek from the deepest hell. Their most repulsive activities involve their human
sacrifices of children on the night of Samhain or Halloween.

First-born sacrifices are mentioned in a poem in the Dindshenchas, which records that
children were sacrificed each Samhain . . . (Rogers, Nicholas. Halloween: From Pagan
Ritual to Party Night, p. 17)

Halloween. That was the eve of Samhain . . . firstborn children were sacrificed. . .
Samhain eve was a night of dread and danger. (National Geographic. May 1977, pp.
625-626)

The Druids would drink their victim’s blood and eat their flesh.

They [Druids] sacrificed victims by shooting them with arrows, impaling them on stakes,
stabbing them, slitting their throats over cauldrons (and then drinking the blood). . .
(Guiley, Rosemary Ellen. Harper’s Encyclopedia of Mystical & Paranormal Experience, p.
167)

Therefore we cannot too highly appreciate our debt to the Romans for having put an end
to this monstrous cult, whereby to murder a man was an act of the greatest devoutness,
and to eat his flesh most beneficial. (Pliny, Natural History, xxx, 13)

The Druids "counted it an honourable thing" to eat their father’s flesh and perform incest with their
mothers and sisters.

. . . since they are man-eaters as well as heavy eaters, and since, further, they count it an
honourable thing, when their fathers die, to devour them, and openly to have intercourse,
not only with the other women, but also with their mothers and sisters;. . . (Strabo,
Geography)

The Druids also celebrated the festival of Beltane. The word Beltane (Beltaine, Beltinne, Beltain, Beiltein)
literally means the "fires of Bel." Bel is the same god called Baal, found over 80 times in the King James
Bible. The Lord condemns Baal worship probably more than any other false "god."

. . . then the Druids lit the Baal-Tinne, the holy, goodly fire of Baal. (Wilde, Lady
Francesca Speranza. Ancient Legends, Mystic Charms, and Superstitions of Ireland)

The god whom the Druids worshipped was Baal, as the blazing Baal-fires show, and . . .
children were offered in sacrifice to Baal. (Hislop, Alexander. The Two Babylons, p. 232)

HALLOWEEN: BAAL WORSHIP

The original Halloween was a hellish night of Baal worship and child sacrifice. And most of our current
Halloween customs derived directly from Baal rituals!

On November first was Samhain [Halloween] . . . Fires were built as a thanksgiving to
Baal. . . (Kelley, Ruth Edna, The Book of Hallowe'en, Lothrop, Lee and Shepard Co.
Boston, 1919)

The mystic rites and ceremonies with which Hallow’en was originally observed had their
origin among the Druids . . . ancient Baal festivals from which many of the Hallow’en
customs are derived. (Douglas, George William. The American Book of Days, p. 569)

Baal is also a synonym for the devil. (Burns, Cathy. Masonic and Occult Symbols
Illustrated, p. 327)

Halloween Glorifies Death

The Druid festival of Samhain was a celebration of death. Strutting its hellish death images of skulls,
skeletons, ghosts, demons, devils and incarnate evil –

New Year's:
New Year's Day in modern America was not always on January 1st. New Year's is the oldest of all holidays, it was first observed about 4,000 years ago by the Ancient Babylon. Babylonian New Year began with the first New Moon around 2,000 BC on the first day of spring. The beginning of spring is a logical time to start a new year, because it is the season of rebirth, of plating new crops, and them blooming. January 1st is nothing more than a deception and a lie including this pagan holiday New Year's. Also the Babylonians New Year lasted for 11 days. The Romans continued to observe the New Year in late March. The Roman calendar was changed so much that it got of order with the sun. In 46 BC Julius Caesar established the Julian calender. After that he celebrated the first on January 1st by ordering the violent routing of revolutionary Jewish forces in the Galilee. In later years the Roman pagans observed the new year by engaging in drunken orgies.

So why did Caesar name the first month January?, He did these to pay homage to the Roman God of doors and gates and the same god that had two faces. The Roman gos Janus. Janus was a dual headed god. The dual heads, one looking forward and one looking behind represents actual and metaphorical threshold in time and space.

Saturnalia - 1. The ancient Roman seven-day festival of Saturn, which began on December 17.
2. Celebration marked by unrestrained revelry and often licentiousness; an orgy.

The early Babylonians most popular resolution was to return borrowed farm equipment. This has to do with the spring connection I mentioned early. The tradition of using a baby to signify the new year had begun in Greece. Although the early Christians denounced the practice as pagan. The church finally allowed the members to celebrate the New Year with a baby. The Year before the council of Nicaea convened, Sylvester convinced Constantine to prohibit Jews from living in Jerusalem. At the council of nicaea, Sylvester arranged for the passage of a host of viciously Anti-Semitic legislation. All Catholic "Saints" are awarded a day o which Christians celebrate and pay tribute to that saints memory. December 31 is Saint Sylvester day. In conclusion we shouldn't be celebrating New Years because it is an abomination unto Yahweh our Heavenly Father.

Valentines Day:
Valentine come from the Latin (Valentinus), which derives from the word Valens-Latin, meaning: strong, powerful, healthy / able, worthwhile, and that famous man is Lupercus. The Greeks called Lupercus by the name of pan, god of light. The month of February was sacred to Juno Februata, the Goddess of the febris "fever" of love in ancient Pagan Rome. She was also the goddess of women and of marriage. February 14 was her festival day. Remember the evening of February 14 , At that time, a box was provided from which single men could draw a billet- a small piece of paper on which a woman's name was written on it, where put into a container. The Teen -aged boys would then pull out a billet at random. They would then become couples from that point on. They then would remain sexual partnrs until the rest of the festival. In 494 AD Pope Gelasius renamed a cleaned-up festival the "Feast of the Purification of the Virgin Mary." Feburay 14 was then changed to Feburary 2. It is now called the Presentation of the Lord.

Cupid is nothing but another word for Nimrod. It comes from the Latin word Cupido "desire, love," from cupere "to desire". Cupid was the so of Venus, a Roman goddess of beauty and love. Also know as Eros in Ancient Greece. Cupid was a child-like archor.

There is allot of money to be made of this pagan holiday. Valentines day was dropped from the Catholic calendar 1969.

Colossians 2:8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.

Romulus & Remus getting fed by a She-Wolf

St. Valentine's Day can be traced back to Lupercalia, the Roman "festival of sexual license." although it might have been associated with protection from wolves (lupus in Latin). The dog was probably a substitute for a wolf. The celebration was held in the Lupercal cave on the Palatine Hill in Rome. Here, it was believed, Romulus and Remus had been sheltered and fed by a she-wolf before they founded Rome. Two naked young priests, assisted by Vestal Virgins, would sacrifice a dog and a goat. The dog was probably a substitute for a wolf.

The priests then clothed themselves with loincloths made from the skin of the goat. They ran about Rome, courging women with februa- Latin for "means of purification". The Romans believed that this flogging would purify them, and assure their future fertility and easy childbirth.
