The first thing to know is that theLive Love Bark Quilt bedding set of Matthew’s Gospel used the Greek word magi, which does not actually mean ‘wise men’, but is a reference to the priests of the then-great Zoroastrian religion of the Persian Empire. When Matthew says they came from the east, he was alluding to the direction of Babylon and Persia. It is, of course, inconceivable that Zoroastrian priests would be in the least interested in the birth of a purported king of Judah. It is scientifically inconceivable that a star could be followed so accurately to Jerusalem and then to Bethlehem and actually stand over the very house where Jesus was. However, our author (he was anonymous and very unlikely to have been called Matthew) knew that the magi were well known for their wisdom and for their knowledge of astrology, so he knew this nativity account would be plausible. What I am saying there, in line with the general consensus of scholars, is that the magi of Bethlehem did not really exist. There was no star of Bethlehem, which is why it was never reported outside this Gospel. The author wanted to achieve two things: i) to show that even the priests of that great religion would want to worship Jesus; ii) provide a reason for Herod to seek to kill all the infant boys, so that he could draw a parallel between Herod and the Old Testament pharaoh who sought to kill all the infant boys, and therefore a parallel between Jesus and Moses.

It seems like the festivities started on December 1 with aLive Love Bark Quilt bedding set of Piety towards all the Gods of life, death and fertility. A kind of celebration to honour the dead and an initial rite in waiting for life to return. A beginning of an ‘Advent’ if you like… On December 3 the women held a Bona dea, a strictly female private feast connected to the godesses Bona dea and Fauna/Maia, an ancient fertility God and female version of Faunus. Both gods connected to foreseeing, prophetic abilities and generousity. Which explains why this was followed by a male and public celebration of Faunus on December 5, when the streets was filled by horned men giving away presents and food. Which reminds us of what still happens in southern Germany on the same day with the horned Krampus and some of the traditons of a goat man delivering Christmas presents in Northern Europe. The day after the Christian saint of sailors and gifts has been given a day, you might recognize him as Santa Claus, or St Nicolaus. Nowadays he comes to us at Christmas night, but in old days December 6 was the day for presents.

I sit next to my baby sister’s boyfriend and my brother in law’s brother, and we begin to eat. My then 8year old niece blurts out, out ofLive Love Bark Quilt bedding set , “what are you even doing here? No one wants you here.” I look at her, look around at everyone else at the table (who all have their mouths wide open) and say, “alright!” I get up, wipe the tears off my face and walk away. Got in my car without saying a word to anyone and drove off. A few minutes later, my mom (whom I love dearly), called me. “where are you?” She talked me into coming back and I was reluctant to do so, but she’s my mom and I did it for her. No apology. Nothing was said to my niece by her parents. Not a word. This year, first thing out of her mouth was a snotty comment about my outfit and how it made me look old. (A high-waisted, knee-length skirt with a striped top. I’m 34) Needless to say, next Christmas I don’t have the boys and I am boycotting my family. I’m boycotting Christmas altogether.
