Friends…something to ponder about. Sometimes things happened around us, which we might regard them as norms. Probably we’re born in the period of time which were full of deceptions and lies (fitna Dajjal or anti-christ).
Well, the celebration of the new year is considered the oldest of all holidays which was first observed in ancient Babylon about 4000 years ago, (according to wilstar.com/holidays/newyear.htm. ) The Babylonian New Year began with the first New Moon after the first day of spring and the celebration lasted for eleven days. Each day had its own unique celebration. Experts say modern New Year’s Eve festivities pale in comparison. The Romans continued to observe the new year in March, but their calendar was changed by various emperors. According to The World Book Encyclopedia, “The Roman ruler Julius Caesar established Jan. 1 as New Year’s Day in 46 B.C. The Romans dedicated this day to Janus, the god of gates, doors and beginnings. (references)
-The month of January was named after Janus, who had two faces — one looking forward and the other looking backward.
Although the Romans continued celebrating the new year into the first century, the early Christians condemned the festivities as paganism (of what Zionist Illuminati yet practicing until ‘modern’ days).
During which Roman paganist infiltrated Christianity politically. Centuries later the church began having its own religious observances concurrently with many pagan celebrations, blending the two, including New Year’s Day.
Today, we find remnants of Babylonian and Roman worship hidden inside the least likely places of our society. Consider, for example, the names of our months and days of the week.
-While January was named after the Roman god Janus, the god of beginnings and endings,
-February is said to come from the Roman god Februus, the god of the dead and purification.
-March is named after Mars, the Roman god of war.
-The month of May is thought to come from Maiesta, the Roman goddess of honor, while June was named after Juno, the goddess of married women.
-July was named in honor of Julius Caesar. August was named after Roman emperor, Augustus.
-Sunday (not Son-day) is named in honor of the Roman sun-god, sol. In Islam Muslim honour Friday. Monday or Moon day was named in honor of the Roman moon goddess, Lunar. Tiw’s day or
-Tuesday was named after Tiw, a Norse god of war. .
-Woden’s day or Wednesday was named after Woden, the god of the wild hunt, also called Odin, the chief Norse god in paganism.
-Thursday or Thor’s day was named after Odin’s son, Thor, the god of thunder.
-Friday or Frey’s day was associated with Freya, the Norse goddess of love, beauty, fertility and destiny while Saturday or Saturn’s day honored Saturn, the Roman god of agriculture.
Mmmmm…Isn’t it interesting that our week days and most of our months are still named in honor of ancient gods and goddesses and emperors that were worshipped? Even the planets in our solar system bear the names of these pagan gods.
Yet now this New Year celebration have penetrate almost global societies, to which extent without the proper understanding on it’s significance behind such fest.
