Some legends claim that the Christian “Christmas” celebration was invented to compete against the pagan celebrations of December.

The 25th was not only sacred to the Romans but also the Persians whose religion Mithraism was one of Christianity’s main rivals at that time.

The history of Christmas dates back over 4000 years.

The Mesopotamians believed in many gods, and as their chief god – Marduk.

Each year as winter arrived it was believed that Marduk would do battle with the monsters of chaos.

A great festival would be held, called the Yuletide, and a special feast would be served around a fire burning with the Yule log.

Great bonfires would also be lit to celebrate the return of the sun.

Traditions say that it has been celebrated since the year 98 AD.
