Illuminati symbolism in Christmas-Saturnalia holiday traditions

First off, Merry Christmas and/or Happy Holidays to all of you out there. As confusing as this might seem, I’m celebrating Christmas as a Christian, but I will post the Christmas portion of my Occult & Illuminati holiday traditions article. Don’t get it twisted; I think there is plenty of truth behind the Christian message and Christmas, but it also gets tied in with occult and Illuminati beliefs. Nothing to throw a fit about or get excited over, but worth acknowledging so you can know where the real deception comes from (materialism and the Illuminati corporate control).


December 21st- December 25th: Christmas

Christmas has various links to pagan celebrations such as Yule, Saturnalia, and the winter solstice. The pagan festival referred to as Yule was celebrated around the winter solstice (Dec. 21-23). The sun is at its lowest altitude and will begin its trek in rising higher again. This is directly opposite to the point when the sun is at its highest point at the midsummer (summer solstice). The rising sun was believed to be symbolic of the acceptance of the sacrifices provided on Samhain. The festival known as Yule would eventually be merged with the Christian holiday of Christmas.

Christmas also has roots with the Roman festival known as Saturnalia, which was held in honor of the deity Saturn. This time of feasting and gift-giving is symbolic of the introduction of the concept of time, weights, and measures, which was brought forth with the destruction of the Golden Age. This concept goes deep down the rabbit hole, so you’ll have to check out my book A Grand Unified Conspiracy Theory: The Illuminati, Ancient Aliens, and Pop Culture for more on that concept of Saturn Worship.

The Saturnalia festival featured human sacrifices and ran from December 17th-23rd. There would be gladiator battles and the deaths would be considered more sacrifices to the deity Saturn. There were also concepts of role reversal; with masters feeding their slaves (still practiced today at work Christmas parties when the bosses feed the workers).

The Romans also participated in a festival called Dies Natalis Solis Invicti, or “Birthday of the Unconquered Sun” on December 25th. Sol Invictus was a Roman god of the sun, which could be yet another retelling of Nimrod and Semiramis. The depictions of Sol Invictus appear to mirror that of the Statue of Liberty, who was designed after the Roman goddess Libertas:

Written verses would accompany gifts given at Saturnalia, which would eventually transform to present day greeting cards. Feasts were conducted in order to honor the upcoming time known as the famine months from January to April in which food was a hard commodity to come by, leading way to the Christmas dinner feast. Cookies shaped as humans were eaten during Saturnalia (gingerbread men), as was the tradition of singing in the streets as part of the festivities (caroling).

The date of December 25th came about in the Roman tradition because Julius Caesar had the calendar ‘re-synched’ with the sun, with the winter solstice occurring on December 25th. Around the 4th century that Saturnalia was integrated with Christmas in an attempt to convert pagans to Christianity.

Here are some more of the common themes and symbolism found at Christmas-time, and their occult origins:



The Bible’s Book of Jeremiah says not to learn the ways of the heathen (e.g. Pagans and occultists) and then goes into the decoration of a tree that Pagans used to do. Here’s an excerpt from Jeremiah 10:2-4:

Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers that it move not.

Supposedly the people referred to in Jeremiah also used to put candies and cakes on it (e.g. candy canes) for the winter pagan stag god; Nimrod. I’ve read that the context of this passage is one in which the people used to literally worship the tree as an idol after they adorned with the silver and gold. The lights on the tree symbolize candles that were used because it was a beacon to the winter god Nimrod for him to see your home and fly down and bless your household.

The meaning of the tree has been diluted down over the years, and the symbolism is arguably no longer there, but none the less, that’s the origin.

The famous Rockefeller Tree is around the sunken plaza which has the statue of Prometheus. This statue honors the story of Prometheus who stole fire of illumination from gods and gave it to mankind, enlightening them with wisdom. This is important to the occult beliefs and Luciferians, as it points out the ability to transform from man to god without the assistance of a spiritual god.


David Rockefeller himself said:

“Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure – one world, if you will. If that is the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.”

Yule Log

As mentioned earlier, anything with “Yule” in it refers to the Pagan holiday on Dec. 21st (a human sacrifice night). The Yule log was to be made from birch and a piece of it should’ve kept burning all year around until the next Christmas, symbolizing the cycle of reincarnation (again, Semiramis and Nimrod).



The tradition of mistletoe is interesting in that the berries on it are poisonous and can give you diarrhea and acute gastrointestinal problems. The mistletoe was a fertility plant for the Druids (hence reason for kissing beneath it), and held as a symbol for romance and vitality because of this.



The wreath is yet another fertility symbol; circular to represent women’s organs (the “circle of life”). The candle in the center is the phallic representation of the man. This same symbol is used at the Vatican in St. Peter’s Square. At the center is a 4,000 year old Egyptian obelisk with a circle around it (representing the male phallus and female fertility). The obelisk was moved from Egypt, to the Circus of Nero in Rome, where it witnessed countless Christian martyrdoms and executions. The lines emanating from the present location at the Vatican (its third move) make it a sundial. If the obelisk’s shadow lies within one of the eight sets of lines, it will indicate a sacrifice night.

Holly & Santa Claus

Holly was used by the Druids to hang in windows to keep evil spirits away. Holly was considered the sacred plant of Saturn during the height of the Roman Saturnalia festival. They would decorate images of the god Saturn, and Christians would eventually decorate their homes as a way of avoiding persecution from the Romans. It is also considered as a sacred fertility symbol. The holly is associated with male fertility while its counterpart ivy represents the female aspect.

There was also a pagan mythological being called the Holly King who was eventually transformed into Santa Claus. He had an adversary named the Oak King and the two would battle with the Holly King at peak strength during the winter solstice (Christmas time). This is very similar to the tale of the phases of Semiramis in which she trades with Nimrod for power during the cycles of the year, as it waxes and wanes.

Like the Holly King, Santa Claus is ‘all knowing’ through knowledge of who’s been good and bad, with powers of omnipresence and ability to traverse the planet in one night. He has eight reindeer with horns on their heads (aka ‘stags’, drawing similarity to the stag god Nimrod again).

Elves were originally demonic and ugly creatures that could perform magic for good or bad. They were also referred to as hell-devils, or orcs at one time. Pentagrams were drawn in order to keep evil elves away from the Scandinavian people. During the late 1500’s elves became synonymous with fairies, eventually to become what we know of today.

There are several good sources that this information was pulled from (and even more could be extracted if desired). This includes: Wikipedia, research by Freeman Fly, Doc Marquis’ America’s Occult Holidays video (see bottom of post), David Icke’s forums, and Bibliotech. For the other Christians out there, we know that the word of God tells us we are being deceived by Satan, and these occult manipulations of the holidays are a key example. What should be days of holiness (holy-days), have been perverted with images and themes of occult worship. The Bible tells us to live in the world, but no be part of it, which could have bearing on these occult holiday traditions we’re innocently taking part of.
