Here is a spin for you on the Eve of Christmas. The real Christmas is not about Christ – that is just the religious take of this time of the year.
Long before the religions made claim on this time of the year – this was the celebration of the harvest – the solace.
But, so as to grab the attention of the religious folk the Christians deemed this was the day Jesus was born.
Now here is a twist for you – No one knows when Jesus was born, let alone what year – that is of course if he ever existed.
So, when you hear of people shouting the real meaning of Christmas remind them – yes, the real meaning is thanks for the harvest which was measured by the solace. And depending on where you lived in the world it was either the winter or summer solace.
