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.
Peace & Love
Recently most global population celebrated Awal Muharam and soon celebrating so-called a ‘New Year’. Both are base respectively on nature circulation of moon orbiting the earth, and circulation of sun orbiting the earth; where we live in. Some believe that these gives impact to our lives and surrounding nature and environment.
Maybe we’re yet still to get the better understanding of the two above in the significance of both to our body, mind and soul.
In Islam, there’s an events of Hijrah, the time cycle is base on the moon-earth orbiting which each respective months bring several benefits tp weeks to even days to even hours. For example the month of Ramadhan, the day of Friday, and goes to the hourly phase like the 3rd part of the night ij Tahajud prayer had been mentioned.
In Paganism (the belief of ancient Egypt which until now practices by Zionist Illuminati as well as Kaballa satanism practice) , they take the Sun as the significant part of their belief and ritual, and adopted them in other cultures and beliefs , for example the worship of Sun been implemented in global weekly practice as Sunday (and not Son-day).
Nevertheless the promotion of Pagan-based New Year had well been absorbed world-wide through Zionist mainstream media gloally and thus becoming a norms in almost many societies in this world – taken as global fest; to whether with full understanding nor otherwise.
