Question by : What does your church do for Christmas?
Hopefully, it’s all about Jesus Christ/God. One church I went to had a play depicting the night of Jesus’ birth, and the events surrounding His birth in a manger that night. Some churches do church services that day and hopefully yours does that too.
Answer by Twylah
We do not recognize Christmas as a Christian holy day and therefore we do not observe it as such.
There is nothing biblical or Christian about Christmas. It began as a Catholic observance and was based upon Mithraism and Saturnalia.
Two main points in scripture:
1- Christians do not celebrate annual birthdays. These are pagan. You will find no mention in scripture of Jesus, the apostles or the earliest church doing this
2- Jesus was not born on 25 Dec. He was born in the early fall harvest during the Jewish Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkoth)
