Christmas is pagan holiday which is a celebration of the winter solstice according to the Julian calendar. Pre-Christians and other pagans celebrated this time as when the sun died.
“On December 22nd, the Sun going south reaches its lowest point in the sky. Our winter solstice. At that lowest point the Sun stops moving on the sun dial for three days. Dec 22nd, Dec 23rd, and Dec 24th in the southern constellation known as the Southern Cross. Hence our savior, dead for three days died on the cross and rises again.”- That Old-Time Religion By Jordan Maxwell pg. 41
“Plutarch tells us that Isis was delivered of Horus, the child, about the time of the winter Solstice, and that the festival of the second or adult Horus followed the Vernal Equinox.” – That Old Time Religion 2003, by Jordan Maxwell pg. 9
Romans celebration of the holiday Saturnalia which was to the Italic god, Saturn, and the rebirth of the sun god. It was a week long period of lawlessness celebrated which was between December 17-25. Roman courts were closed, and Roman law dictated that no one could be punished for damaging property or injuring people during the weeklong celebration. The festival began when Roman authorities chose “an enemy of the Roman people” to represent the “Lord of Misrule.” Each Roman community selected a victim whom they forced to indulge in food and other physical pleasures throughout the week. At the festival’s conclusion, December 25th, Roman authorities believed they were destroying the forces of darkness by brutally murdering this innocent man or woman.
“Mass” is one of the names by which the sacrament of the Eucharist is commonly called in the Roman Catholic Church. Christmas itself came from the Roman Catholic Church. One of the tactics of the Roman Catholic Church was to absorbed the customs, traditions and general paganism of every tribe, culture and nation in their efforts to easily convert more people.

1 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 the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe.
4 They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.
