Re: Sinterklaas - Odin
« on: March 24, 2020, 10:43:37 am »
I sometimes think that adults are even more gullible than children.

It looks like the tale of Sinterklaas is mostly based on the Norse God Odin (the tale of Santa Claus changed his home to the North Pole). One of Odin's most popular titles is – Allfather.
Odin had a long white beard (one eye) and sometimes visited earth, in disguise, in a cloak and broad-brimmed hat or hood. See on the left an early image of Santa Claus and on the right Odin...

Most historians agree that many of our Christmas traditions come from the ancient Norse festival known as Yule or Yuletide. The Norse sang Yule carols with their children singing from door-to-door wearing masks.
Vikings in Yule decorated trees with food, gifts, and small carvings. The Christmas tree could also be a reference to the Persian Tree of life...
Loki, the god of mischief and misfortune murdered the god Baldur, with a spear made from mistletoe. The Mistletoe berries later became a symbol of love in the same story, hence the tradition of kissing under it...

Norse stories sometimes describe Odin flying through the sky on a chariot pulled by his 8-legged flying white horse Sleipnir, visiting homes in the middle of the night and leaving gifts for children in their boots by the fireplace during the Yule season. Odin also rode in a flying chariot (or sleigh) pulled by Sleipnir.
Originally Santa’s single horse pulled his sleigh. This only became 8 reindeer after “Twas the Night Before Christmas” (1823).

In anticipation of Odin’s return from the Great Hunt, the Yule, Norse children left their boots stuffed with straw by the fireplace. In the morning Odin had taken the straw and left sweets and presents in the boots.
Odin’s 2 ravens, Huginn and Muninn, were his eyes and ears and always watching the Vikings (like Mithras). Ravens also play an important role in Mithraism: https://sonsofvikings.com/blogs/history/viking-origins-of-christmas-yule-traditions

Yes, Easster and Christmas are pagan ritual events from ancient times. However, to day, a small group of people consider Christmas as a time to celebrate the Birth of Jesus Christ that happened in the fall of the year.

They also celebrate Easter as the Resurrection of Christ......

While the Catholic Church has over the years, gone to great lengths to separate the Jewish Passover and subsequent feast days from their day of "Resurrection" Worship also known as Easter; other churches including the Protestant groups have followed suite without any cry-out.


1 Cor 15:3-4.."For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:"

Acts 17:11.."These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so."
