Many Christians really enjoy the hoopla and frolicking and all around feel good warm fuzzy that the “Christmas Season” instills in them and if you try to inform them that something about this whole Christmas thing is just not right, they will almost rip your head off for even implying their Christmas Holiday is somehow… not holy…
I have experienced this first hand in the past and still do even to this day when I try to explain that Christmas today really is not the celebration of the birth of Christ and that December 25th is actually the date of a celebration of a Pagan Sun god Sol Invictus. In fact it is still not certain that December 25th is Jesus’ actual birthday. We do, however, know for sure that it was the date of the “Feast of the Sol Invictus” (Unconquerable Sun”).
When you study the various explanations of the origins of the Date of December 25th as the celebration of Jesus’ birthday, it can become quite dizzying to say the least. Many explanations take almost every possibility into account and so they are extremely long pieces and very hard to read because they reference so much information in just one article. I can see why many people don’t know, because just trying to find a place to begin can be a very daunting task.
In one such article (How December 25 Became Christmas) I found worthy of mention, this is just the case. My head was spinning by the time I reached the end of the article and I was still just as confused as I was when I began to read it from the beginning. Oh it gives great data to study, and there is a lot to study, but it still left me a bit confused because at the end it seems to denote that there are actually two official dates for Christmas, those being January 6th and December 25th, one for the Eastern hemisphere and the other for the Western hemisphere, and according to that order each hemisphere is referenced.
There is one other article I also found worthy of mention because it does give a possible reason for the choice of the date of December 25th that does seem very plausible and also would explain the references to the Pagan holiday that Christmas is accused of being. Within that article, I found this excerpt which gave me the notion that Christmas may in fact be a date which denotes dual theological celebrations, both of which may be Pagan and Christian in origin. Here is that excerpt…
Why is Christmas celebrated on December 25th?
Although Christmas is celebrated on the 25th day of December each year, the exact date of Jesus’ birth is unknown. Most biblical scholars agree that the birth, in fact, did not take place in December at all, but probably occurred during the spring of the year. The Gospel of Luke states that the shepherds to whom the announcement of the birth was made were watching theirs sheep by night (Luke 2:8) which would suggest the lambing time (the spring). Only then did shepherds bother to guard their flocks around the [p. 206] clock. In winter, for example, the sheep would have been kept in the corral.
Why, then, the 25th of December? Actually, the date was chosen not by the Christians, but by Romans, the traditional antagonists of the Early Church.
Each year as the days became noticeably shorter in November and December, the Roman citizens feared that the earth may be “dying”. With the “return of the sun” at the end of December resulting in longer days, the Romans celebrated the “Feast of the Sol Invictus” (Unconquerable Sun”) on December 25. Bishop Liberius of Rome ordered in 354 that all Christians celebrate the birth of the Christ child on that day. Scholars believe that the bishop chose this date so that Christians, still members of an “outlaw religion” in the eyes of the Romans, could celebrate the birth of their Savior without danger of revealing their religious conviction, while their Roman neighbors celebrated another event.

So now we can move on with the two stories that share similar theories from two differing points of view. That theory is that the Christmas holiday as we understand it today is quite a fraud and really only promoted for the continuance of two other frauds, the profit margin and the satanic celebration of the “Feast of the Sol Invictus”.
It seems once again that Christians have either forgotten their true roots or have just become completely apathetic to the conspiracy of greed and Satan worship that lies behind the Christmas season of today. No longer aware of the truth of why we celebrate Christmas on December 25th and probably just as unaware of the Pagan underpinnings, they just go along with it because it gives them a nice warm fuzzy feeling inside completely oblivious that the creeps in charge are laughing at them all the way to the banks.
Yes Christmas has been hijacked but Christians do not realize that fact and if you try to tell them, they just want to rip your head off for trying to be honest. Now I too am a Christian and I also fell victim to this guise for quite some time, so I can appreciate what my fellow Christians feel. With that said however, I feel I have a responsibility to at least try to show them how they are being duped. If they really knew why Christmas was celebrated on December 25th I think they would be much more vehement in their faith than most are today.
Please do not misunderstand, I am not trying to elevate myself above other Christians nor anyone else for that matter, I am just speaking from the vantage point of acquired knowledge and I mean no disrespect. So now, I give you the two stories that sparked my desire to write this article.
They are mixed together, in a sense, below. One is in the form of a video presentation by Round Saturn’s Eye (R$E) and the other is in text format penned by Ethan Indigo Smith.
I hope you find this information helpful and educational at the very least, Enjoy…
The Santa Story is Major Influence on Consciousness | Ethan Indigo Smith
The first four years of our life is the most influential time period of our lives. During this time period many children are taught to develop a serious obsession with The Santa Story.
Why do we celebrate it? How does The Santa Story influence our consciousness?
I originally conceived Santa Clause Syndrome while writing The Terraist Letters, a fictional work. The apathy of the world was so stinky I decided that exploring the idea that we are trained to be apathetic was a worthy one. I found out a lot about Holidays, religion, consciousness, psychiatry and of course The Santa Clause…
An Excerpt from A Holiday Hazing Santa Clause Syndrome
The Santa Clause: Lying is OK, so long as everyone else is doing it.
The Santa Claus Syndrome is the effect of societal complicity in, and/or complacency to, lies and the belief that that’s OK.
Take a moment to imagine yourself an outsider and visitor to a new culture. Imagine if you will an annual global celebration so fantastic that people excitedly await it all year long. Imagine the celebration correlates with the winter solstice. Imagine the celebration is so spectacular and grandiose that it spurs the sales of products worldwide and some businesses exist solely because of it.
Imagine that nearly all businesses profit from it and promote it. Imagine that the main part of the celebration, for most people, aside from sparkling decorations and elaborate gift giving, is openly lying to young children! Most everyone celebrates the holiday, but those who do not celebrate it are expected to go along with the tradition of broadly lying to children and accepting the excessive materialism out of consideration for cultural tradition.
Conjuring, Consumerism, and Conditioning although some call it Christmas today a ‘Pagan’ holiday, in reality it is nothing of the kind. The pagans I know want nothing to do with it. Christmas is a children’s consumption holiday. They look forward to it the most. Well, children and the profiting corporations, of course. Children receive countless presents, rewarded for accepting as truth impossible fictions about a fat man from the North Pole, an omnipotent external being who “sees you when you’re sleeping”, who judges children, and who withholds or grants material incentives accordingly.
It is better to give than to receive, they are told. Celebration and happiness is in the receiving, they observe. Reward is earned by modelling behavior and suspending critical thinking, they learn. Generally speaking, telling children fiction as fact is counter-productive to their developing minds. But children do of course eventually inquire of their parents and strangers alike about the phenomenon of the holiday and the fat man.
For a period of time after that first inquiry, many children are lied to further – to prolong the “magic”. Finally, they get their answer and find that the majority of adults are in on the lie. Even institutions like schools lie, and local and national news. And now they will lie, too. And it’s all okay… so long as everyone else is doing it. And that, kids, is the magic of Christmas!
Other celebration rituals involve cutting down young trees for indoor decorations, wrapping gifts in paper from other trees and putting them under the dying, decorated tree on the last night of the celebration and saying the fat man did it. The children are told the fat man traverses the world on an inadequately sized sled powered by flying reindeer (the lead one featuring an inexplicable glowing nose) and stops by the homes of children, entering through chimneys yet staying crispy clean, having cookies at each house as he drops off plastic weapons and impossibly thin dolls.
And the fat man, old Santa Claus, he isn’t just generous, he’s mysterious. He doesn’t simply give because it’s better than receiving. He and his elf workers in the North Pole watch all the children of Earth all year long. He decides which children receive the promise of abundance based on who’s been naughty and nice. Sounds a bit like the other Big Guy, who decides who receives the promise of abundance in the ‘afterlife’, based on who’s been naughty and nice.
First Lies The Santa Claus story is an unnecessary social conjuration of a blatantly un-sacred holiday. Those of us who grew up in ‘Christmas’ homes were all influenced by it in one way or another; even the ‘not Christmas’ kids were openly encouraged to withhold the truth from the ‘Christmas’ kids – to prolong the magic. Abstract and nuanced, it is the first load of garbage young humans in Christian-influenced societies have to mentally digest.
For many kids, it is the first time they come to doubt their parents on a point of truth, and the first time they are knowingly lied to so their suspicions are deflected. Then, once entrusted with continuing the Santa Claus myth with younger children, it is the first time they learn that the caveat to the long held ‘no lying’ rule is … ‘so long as everyone else is doing it, then it’s OK’. Just play along kids, and you’ll still get the gifts.
Amid all the Christmas hoopla, which starts to build in stores as early as October, children are normally so occupied with shiny lights and the prospect of gifts that there really is no impetus to question it. Eventually, despite the enticements on offer, the lie is realized of course, for some kids much sooner than others, and the specifics and nuances come undone as a natural function of their maturing minds.
Tradition or Parody? Regardless of any magical intention, the blunt reality is that parents, teachers, strangers, radio hosts, and local weathermen are deceiving children in perfect synchronization, steering them into immense emotional and material attachment to a collective (unnecessary) illusory figure that withholds from the ‘naughty’ and rewards the ‘nice’.
The holiday in its current formation gives us all practice at complicity, passing on cultural fictions because they were passed onto us, and because that’s what adults do. It is effectively a child-friendly celebration of the doctrines — It’s better to receive than to give, and you’re expected to lie so long as everyone else is doing it — proudly brought to you by your favorite sugary drink, Coca-Cola. The worst part of the celebration of this vile conjuration is not the lie itself, but the results of it.
Lying to kids in this way creates a parody of genuine human tradition, substituting meaningful ritual with an illusory commercial mockery. But that’s only stage one of the Santa Claus Syndrome…
Learning the Santa Clause is the the first test of adulthood. Left unresolved, the experience can manifest to varying degrees, in a number of ways. The Santa Clause: Lying is OK, so long as everyone else is doing it. If you don’t question what you’ve been told, accept incomplete information, and don’t proceed with your natural impulse, you quite likely have the Santa Claus Syndrome to some degree. Quite simply, it makes people ignore serious issues.
The Santa Claus Syndrome manifests in a number of stages:
Stage One:It manifests as insistence on celebrating lies posing as tradition, elaborate intent on the deception of youth including distraction with sparkling decoration and gifts, and instilling ‘the Santa Clause’ in children. Beyond that, ;the Santa Clause’ teaches us to conform to widely-accepted untruths.
Stage Two:Stage two is the acceptance of adult lies, servitude to authority and unquestioning belief in whatever the ‘proper authority’ states. The childhood belief in Santa Claus and trust of authority leads to an adulthood belief that the government, corporate and religious institutions they trust do not lie.
Just like a kid sees the local weather reporter tracking Santa’s flight path, an adult with stage two Santa Claus Syndrome will see as real other fictions in the news and media (such as chemically treated food is just as healthy as organic, or nuclear is a safe energy system).
Stage Three:Telling adult lies. Stage Three Santa Claus Syndrome is also indicated by people who continue adult likes, such as nuclear is safe… or cannabis has no medicinal value… or insert any number of lies here _____ that many people perpetuate on behalf of our corrupted institutions.
Stage Four:In Stage Four, one has all the symptoms of stages One through Three. Further, those in Stage Four are likely to lash out at those who question the status quo or expose lies (and forcing change) in anyway. Stage Four can involved the conjuration of adult lies, instituting great and broad fictions for trifle and temporary gains, often as a way to psychologically rationalize not just with others but themselves, to believe what they are doing – and who they are – is OK.
Trading why for what It is no coincidence that around the time when young children begin to ask the eternal why, a series of ‘whys’ in regard to every subject, they are taught ‘the Santa Clause’, which teaches them, teaches us, to replace the endless series of why into an endless series of what. Where the Santa Claus fiction is concerned, knowing is less important than obtaining. It is the first true test of our ‘adulthood’; once you are entrusted with the truth of the lie, adults check that you repeat the lie to those younger than you; those who aren’t to know.
Then in adulthood, we are exposed to big and sometimes seriously dark and disturbing lies. And adult lies – lies told by authorities – are often backed up by the local news reporters and retailers, just like Santa Claus. And just like the children we were, and the children we raise, we adults too stop asking why in exchange for what. The materialistic enticement of ‘the Santa Clause’ has contributed to a culture where understanding is inhibited, and truth undervalued.
We teach our children not to tell the truth so as not to make the babies cry. We reward materialistic impulses, confusing gratification with what is right and wrong. But worst of all, we teach little people to accept that we are lied to, and to contribute to broadly accepted lies — as long as we have bright shiny things. Evidence of the Santa Clause Syndrome is everywhere in our society.
Many personal and societal problems can be theoretically traced to it, but also many institutions can be rationally broken down as disturbingly negative or outright useless when considering it. Most evidently, Santa Claus Syndrome does not promote individuation, but conformity – at a very impressionable stage of childhood development.
Santa Claus is Dead Christmas today doesn’t celebrate the humanity nor the amazing world around us – in other words, anything real – and that is a direct reflection of our sick society.
Although I risk being accused of some ridiculous thinking here, I believe we need to heal and re-create our culture through sacred, nutritious traditions grounded in love, simplicity and gratitude. In contrast, the fiction of Santa doesn’t encourage a sense of gratitude in children. Children “earn” gifts from Santa Claus by adhering to social norms – naughty or nice – and any innate sense of gratitude a child may feel for this annual abundance is intentionally misdirected at a magical, fictional patriarch, until a comprehensive deception is finally realized.
Sadly, that realization is where, for most kids, their broader sense of magic is hindered a learned distrust of their developing senses. Arguably the most underestimated and psychologically disturbing rites of passage for children in Christian-based cultures today, ‘the Santa Clause’ is another failing institutionalization, much like the religions that spawned it.
And so, many of us are now facing the decision to keep perpetuating ‘the Santa Clause’ within our family circles, or begin the process of transforming this ritualized nonsense into a genuinely sacred, annual celebration of peace, renewal and gratitude.
This year Santa is dead to me. There will be no false idol. This year, children will learn the truth if they come around here. And with that, healing from the Santa Clause Syndrome can begin.
This holiday season, be sure to not tell your kids a pack of lies and cater only to their material desires – no matter the tradition. Let’s create a new holiday. Peace on Earth… only for real. Merry Christmas!
The Santa Claus Syndrome instills more than just materialism and the acceptance of lies. And chances are, if you can recall the names of more than one of Santa’s reindeer, you are likely affected by it in some way. In the book A Holiday Hazing: the Santa Clause Syndrome, Ethan Indigo Smith examines the many psychological influences of one of the most widely celebrated traditions the world has ever known, and exposes common beliefs of ‘self’ and ‘society’ in a way that might make you chuckle, and a little bit angry.
A Holiday Hazing: the Santa Clause Syndrome is available on Amazon as an e-book — just in time for (saving you from) Christmas.

So at this point, if you made it this far, you may be a bit uneasy or unsure about Christmas and the real reasons behind the celebration. I just wanted to give you, the reader, a broader understanding of what is really behind the Christmas Season so that you might have a better understanding of how the satanic influences of this world work very hard to cheapen the meaning behind not just Christmas but everything there is about Jesus Christ.
Yes Christmas is very much about celebrating the Birth of Jesus Christ as the virgin born savior, but it is also understood by the satanic realm as a celebration of a Pagan sun god “Sol Invictus” and it is important to understand this so that you can make the distinction between which tradition(s) you may be adhering to so not to get caught up in the wrong reasons for the season. While December 25th may not have been the real day of Christ’s virgin birth, it is still the official day we recognize that fact and celebrate it.
So on that official day and in this Christmas season, I just want to remind you that the REAL REASON for the season is the joy in celebrating the miracle that is the virgin birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It isn’t about the presents and it certainly does not have to be about the perpetuation of a lie that can afflict a terrible mental condition on our children either.
Maybe from this day forward we can drop the commercial side of Christmas and try to begin a new “CHRISTIAN” tradition of teaching our children about Jesus Christ and not rewarding our children for becoming apathetic to believing that lying is OK as long as everybody is doing it…
Can you see now how we are conditioned from childhood to accept unbelievable conspiracies through a reward system for being good sheople? Having read this far, can you honestly believe that the conspiracy behind 9/11 would be impossible because it would involve so many people and that it isn’t possible to pull off such a huge hoax because “someone would says something”? Food for thought…
What do you think Jesus would say about the whole Santa Clause ruse…?
