Unwrapping Christmas

Christmas to many people is a favorite time of the year involving gift giving and feasting. (For Johnny Nuts and the majority of his fans, the favorite day of the year is of course... Johnny Nuts' Birthday!)

Well here are some pertinent points relating to the origin of christmas that Johnny Nuts have amassed to power up your knowledge base on christmas. If you pull it off well, I'm sure you can hook up some intello-chicks with these key points to our celebration of christmas.

  • The evergreen tree was a symbol of the essence of life and was regarded as a phallic symbol in fertility worship.
  • Witches and other pagans regarded the red holly as a symbol of the menstrual blood of the queen of heaven, also known as Diana.
  • The holly wood was used by witches to make wands.
  • The white berries of mistletoe were believed by pagans to represent droplets of the semen of the sun god.
  • Both holly and mistletoe were hung in doorways of temples and homes to invoke powers of fertility in those who stood beneath and kissed, causing the spirits of the god and goddess to enter them.
