Christmas: The way it used to be is an easy-to-read, yet in-depth research book that looks into this religious festival's murky past. It spans hundreds of years and many countries to show the real history. Julius Caesar introduced the Julian calendar in 46BC placing December 25 as the day with the shortest daylight hours. In AD 350, this day was appointed as the Feast of the Nativity. In later years, it was called Mass of Christ. Today people use the contraction, Christmas! In Scandinavian culture, December 25 through January 6 became known as Yuletide. This period lasted 12 days. Many people celebrate December 25: Some for worship, some for business, and others for more devious actions. This book explores the ancient history of sun worship: Prior to Jesus' earthly birth- all the way back to Babylon. It gives insight to God's views on Israel's participation and answers the question, How does God want to be worshipped . It compares many aspects of Christmas with the Holy Scriptures.
