Christmas Carols: Sound Doctrine, or Catholic Tradition? - Originally from Biblical Discernment Ministries - An examination of some of the well known carols of the season.
The Christmas Star Research Project - by Dr. Craig Chester - When was Jesus Christ born? This astronomical research shows that it was not on December 25th.
The Christmas Story as Given In the Bible - by Stephen Van Nattan - It isn't what you might think!
How Christmas Got the Pre-eminence in the USA - This holiday, not accepted by many Christian groups of the North, was a Southern holiday until after the Civil War when it was used to encourage national unity by drawing the North and South together in merry making (a paltry tidbit offered to the South after they endured such destruction, in my opinion).
Money Is the Reason for the Season - by Darryl R. Coats
The Origins of Christmas Pt. 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4 - by Caryl Matrisciana - This is a four part video on Youtube dealing with the pagan, occult and ungodly origins and history of the holiday. While I feel that the conclusion is somewhat weak in declaring the need to separate the profane from the holy, I find there is a considerable amount of information here and feel that those who watch all four parts of this are truly faced with an important decision - Will you continue to incorporate overtly pagan ritual and tradition in your observance of the birth of Christ, or will you "come out from among them, and be ye separate" (2 Cor. 6:17)? It is impossible to ignore the historical details presented in this video. A choice must be made. [NOTE: I do not recommend watching this documentary with children present.]
