Or Birthday of the Unconquered Sun.

Sol Invictus - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Sol Invictus was an official Roman Sun god. Like all their ancestors before them, and since humans had the intelligence to look up to the sky and notice stuff like the movements of the sun, the Romans revered the sun in proper pagan style and witnessed its annual rebirth and resurrection with a big party. Lots of booze, presumably.

At least this incorporeal, mythical jesus character was based on something real.

Happy Dies Natalis Solis Invicti. Have a good one.

Today is Sunday.

Constantine decreed (March 7, 321) dies Solis—day of the sun, "Sunday"—as the Roman day of rest [CJ3.12.2]:
On the venerable day of the Sun let the magistrates and people residing in cities rest, and let all workshops be closed. In the country however persons engaged in agriculture may freely and lawfully continue their pursuits because it often happens that another day is not suitable for grain-sowing or vine planting; lest by neglecting the proper moment for such operations the bounty of heaven should be lost.[23]
Yet Dunnes Stores was open until midnight. How unconstantine is that?

Claim he wasn't God, claim he wasn't a prophet, but please don't try to claim that Jesus didn't exist. By trying to claim that he didn't exist and ignoring all the near contemporary historical sources that mention him you are by extension ruling out an awful lot of other historical figures.

On the 25th of December thing, yes the Roman Church did take a lot of dates of pagan festivals and apply their own definitions to them.

I'm not a historian, and I don't have 20 years to spare crawling over ancient texts. So I'll go with my gut. Maybe he did, maybe he didn't. I don't care. But I'd bet the family house he never made a blind man see.

Depends which book you read. Sun God, Lord of the Wild Hunt. Its is the rebirth of the God and the lengthening of the days.
There's a grand stretch in the evenings now. We've already gained four minutes in the evening since December 14th.

I walked less than a mile to my car. It was daylight when I started it was dark when I got there, that was yesterday at approximately 16.30. Living in rural Ireland is grand but you don't want to be out walking on a cloudy night. I don't care what people call him I'm glad he's back.

I'm no expert but I believe the Romans had a habit of appropriating the Gods of other nations/people and in so doing placing their own Gods above those of the appropriated. Hail Cesar.
