Worldly Tales of Christmas
A lot of what is widely regarded as true about Christmas or held as a Tradition is held dear to the hearts of millions of people.
Christmas Day, Dec. 25, the day on which Jesus Christ was born. But with that celebration comes another very old Christmas tale that everyone tells, particularly to children.
It is about Santa Claus, also called St. Nicholas. Another long lost Christmas tale tells of a man with a long white beard who entered the center of the earth at the North Pole. There were a group of lost Wanderers who had joined St. Nicholas, then called “Sanat Kumara”. He gave this earth a gift by walking into the center of the earth and living there for thousands of years. It is a gift to all who dwell on our planet earth, as his light is so great that he holds the balance against much of the evil energy present on the earth and surrounding our lives.
His heart Chakra is so BIG that he Shawn with a reddish glow, thus the tale goes that we was dressed in a “Red Suit.”
I think it is very fitting that it still gives our hearts such a warm and loving feeling even today when we offer a gift to someone at Christmas time. Passing down our Christmas tale to our children in each generation has preserved not only the Christmas spirit to love one another, no matter who you are or where you live in the world, but also the memory of this great gift that was given to us.
It is fitting that Jesus also gave us a gift, a gift of saving, the saving of our souls and lives for those who would receive it. Jesus walked and talked with GOD, and I believe “Sanat Kumara” did as well.
I’m not sure when the celebrating of the birth of Jesus got connected with the tale of “Sanat Kumara”, but it has survived for many many years.
The people of Finland also claim that their country is the official residence of Santa Claus. That’s because in Finland, you can actually visit a village any time during the year and see Santa’s workshop and observe Santa and his elves hard at work. As they prepare for their very important Christmas gift delivery job on Christmas Eve of toy-delivery to all the good boys and girls, children look up in hopes of seeing his Sleigh and Reindeer.
If mere mortals got a chance to question Santa, then he also would likely have some questions for us humans. He may want to know whose idea was it to have Christmas trees and for the gifts to be placed under them.
The tradition of Christmas tree as it exists today comes from Germany by way of immigrants. But it isn’t clear how the tradition really gained a foothold in Germany. One story is that Christians in Germany during the 16th century started to bring trees that were decorated into their homes. Some of those Christians would build pyramids for Christmas. The pyramids were made of wood and would be decorated with evergreens and candles if wood was in short supply.
It is however Martin Luther, a Protestant reformer, who is said to have been the first to add lighted candles as decoration to a tree based on his inspiration from the brilliant light of twinkling stars that shone through evergreen trees as he walked home one winter evening.
As the legend goes, Martin Luther placed a tree in a primary room of his house and placed wires with small, lighted candles around the branches of the tree. And that is how, as the tale goes, the Christmas tree as known today, was started.
