Wreaths, branches, boughs, and trees were originally used to worship the sun at the winter solstice, known as the "re-birth" of the unconquered sun. Nimrod of Babylon, slain by Shem, began to be worshipped as the sun, and branches of trees represented him as the reborn Tammuz ~ that's why wreaths are round. They were absorbed or "inculturated" by Christendom. Tammuz' mother (Semiramis) was later worshipped as Mother Nature, under various names like Ishtar, Easter, Ashtar, Astoreth, Asherah, Astarte, Artemis, Eastre, Nana, Nut, Frigga, Gaia, Maia, and many others. The hearth was the Pagan Roman family's place of worship, because fire was associated with the Sun, and thought to be sacred. In this book, you will find out who Santa Claus is too.
Most people don't think for themselves. They don't ask for evidence, look too closely, or ask questions. They just "believe" everything. "The simple inherit folly, but the prudent are crowned with knowledge." ~ Prov. 14:18. 14:15 says, A simple man believes anything; but a prudent man gives thought to his steps."
