Happy Winter Solstice

I just wanted to take a minute to wish everyone a happy winter solstice.

For those of you who are new to Satanism, it’s important to remember that there’s nothing Christian about Christmas, except the name itself. Most of the traditions we associate with Christmas have their origins in earlier pagan winter solstice celebrations.

Even the date of December 25 was deliberately chosen by the Catholic Church to commemorate the birth of Christ because of its association with the roman sun God (Mithra) Mithras. All of this was done by the church in an attempt to convert pagans to Christianity by integrating their pagan holidays and traditions into the new Christian religion.
