Since this sweatshirt tends to run a bit large, I am going to give it as a Christmas gift to someone who will enjoy wearing it. I am a born-again Christian who just found out four years ago that I am Jewish on my Mother's side! Since that time, I have been studying Jewish culture and history and have learned some very interesting facts - one of them being that Jesus couldn't have been born in December, as it is too cold to make that long trek from Nazareth to Bethlehem at that time of year; and the Shepherds would not still be out in the fields watching their flocks for the same reason. Jesus was probably born in the month of September, if you trace the time back to when the angel appeared to Mary and shortly thereafter she went to stay for 3 months with her cousin Elizabeth, who gave birth to John the Baptist (who was Jesus' cousin) No where in the Bible is Christmas mentioned and upon further study, I have learned that it only came into being approx. 300 years after Jesus was born, when the Emporer of Rome (Constantine) converted to Christianity and declared that all of Rome would from here on be known as Christians! We all know that is not how one becomes a Christian, so Constantine took the pagan holidays and changed them into 'Christian' holidays, in order to pacify the people and help them to accept his declaration that Rome was now a Christian country. The evergreen tree was worshipped at the time of the Winter Solstice and from that point on, it became known as a 'Christmas tree' and most homes are not without one at this time of year. (It's sad that we don't have a better knowledge of the origins of our holidays.) I have nothing against Christmas, and I now celebrate both Hanukkah and Christmas! (lol) but I don't worship either. I worship my Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ (Yeshua was the Hebrew name given to him at birth) and pray that both Christians and Jews who celebrate special occassions at this time of year might be blessed and enjoy their celebrations to the fullest! May we be open to building bridges with our elder brothers and sisters, and give God all of the Glory! - Leah :)
