This is in no way promoting this paganism. This garbage is disgusting and down right blasphemy and a slap in the face of the most high. But I challenge you don’t believe me do the research because Hosea 4:6-9 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge…..
Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
A national holiday celebrated throughout the United States, is a day of religious observance, set apart to give thanks for the blessing of family reunions, bountiful dimers and festivities in the home (Encyclopedia Britannica p. 17 Textiles to Vas ed. 22).
The celebration of Thanksgiving is one of the oldest celebration in the world. In ancient times this holiday was originally observed as the fall harvest festival (fall equinox) by many cultures. During the festival people would gather and eat the harvest of crops; also the festival are used to worship the gods (he/she) honoring them for supplying the harvest.
Various Cultures celebrate
The Egyptian’s fall festival is based on the worship and honor of the God Min who is the god of vegetation and fertility. The Babylonian’s fall festival is based on the worship and honor of the god Marduk who is the creator of the universe, humankind, god of light, life, and ruler of destinies. The Greek’s fall festival is based on the worship and honor of Demeter who is the goddess of grain, agriculture, harvest, growth, and nourishment. The Roman’s fall festival is based on the worship and honor of the goddess Ceres who is the goddess of agriculture, grain and fertility.

Thanksgiving Arrival in America
Thanksgiving is noticed as a national holiday that is primarily celebrated in the United States and Canada as a day of giving thanks for harvest and just showing gratitude. Originally thanksgiving was observed as religious, but now identified as a secular holiday that is rooted in English traditions.
Due to the American holiday of thanksgiving being celebrated in November many cultures see this as the second harvest or the fall equinox (Mabon- The Welsh God celebrated on Sept 21st). Celebrating thanksgiving early is more sensible because during the end of summer. This is where the crops are fully grown and the animals are full and you could determine how much food you will have to survive the winter. During November the ground is barren and cannot produce harvest for winter season originally thanksgiving in America was celebrated on October 3rd.
Thanksgiving is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November in the United States and the second Monday of October in Canada. The “First thanksgiving” is originally a harvest festival celebrated by pilgrims in the New World in October 1621 at the Plymouth (Present Day Massachusetts) and the Wampanoag people. This feast would last for three days and accounted by Edward Winslow in attendance were 90 Native Americans and 53 Pilgrims. For the Pilgrims Thanksgiving was a time for prayer thanking God for blessings like military victory or the end of a drought.
President Abraham Lincoln Oct 3rd, 1863, by presidential proclamation appointed the last Thursday of November as Thanksgiving day was due to the unremitting efforts of Mrs. Sarah J. Hale, editor of Godey’s Lady’s Book. Each succeeding president made similar proclamations, until Pres. Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1939 appointed the third Thursday of November. In Dec. 1941, however, congress by joint resolution approved by the president set the fourth Thursday of November as Thanksgiving day a national public holiday. Though thanksgiving day in the United States is rooted in native tradition, the idea of a day set apart to celebrate the completion of the harvest and to render homage to the spirit who caused the fruits and crops to grow is ancient and universal (Encyclopedia Britannica p. 17 Textiles to Vas ed. 22).
How is Thanksgiving Religious
Religion (Latin: Religare)- To tie, to bind
From the food we eat, to the prayers that we pray at the dinner table when we commune with family. On this day, Thanksgiving day we become united as a country through the observance of all traditional identities, groups and affiliations which unites; bounds people around the world together through “doctrine and ideological truths” which people hold to be self evident.
Connection to Pagan holidays
The Neopagans and Angelo Saxons held celebrations Lughnasadh and Mabon. This was to honor the first and second harvest that they believed their Gods and goddess blessed them. Lammas is also called Lughnasadh which is honoring the God Lugh and is celebrated in Norse culture honoring the deity Freyr falls at the being of the harvest season were the harvest is plentiful. Mabon (Sabbat) is the Autumn Equinox and the Welsh God who is the symbol for male fertility in the Welsh myth. Mabon is a fire festival that is celebrated on September 21st-22nd. Mabon goes by many names Alban Elfed, Harvest Home, Autumn Equinox, and the Druids call this celebration Mea’n Fo’mhair, The Green Man, The God of the Forest.
Myth of Mabon
The birth of Mabon ap Modron (Great Son of the Great Mother) is celebrated at the Equinox. He is born from his mother Modron (Great Mother), who is seen as the Guardian of the Otherworld, the Earth and the Protector. Mabon was stolen from his mother, Modron, when he was three nights old. In different versions of the story he was three years old. In one version of the myth the Eagle, the Owl, the Blackbird, the Stag and the Salmon rescued him, while in another King Arthur was the one who saved him. During his captivity, Mabon dwelled in a magical Otherworld -Madron’s Womb. Madron’s womb was a place of challenge and nurturing, and while there Mabon grew in strength and wisdom before being reborn as the Son of Light, his mother’s Champion.
Note: Here is another point of perfect balance on the journey through the Wheel of the Year, its counterpart being Ostara or the Spring Equinox. Night and day are again of equal length and in perfect equilibrium – dark and light, masculine and feminine, inner and outer, in balance. But we are again on the cusp of transition and from now the year now begins to wane and from this moment darkness begins to defeat the light.
Representation of Thanksgiving
Cornucopia (Latin: Horn of Plenty): is a traditional symbol for Mabon. It is a wonderful symbol for the wealth of harvest and is beautifully balanced symbol which is both male (phallic) and female (hollow and receptive).
Apple: For Pagans, the apple contains a ‘secret’. Cut an apple width ways and it reveals a pentagram containing seeds. It is a much loved symbol of Paganism. The five points represent the elements of Earth, Air, Fire, Water with Spirit at the top, and thus also the directions of East, South, West, North and Within.
A circle around the pentagram represents the eternal circle/cycle of life and nature, and of wholeness. In ritual and ceremony the pentacle corresponds to the element of Earth. It is believed to be a protection against evil for both the person and the home, worn as an amulet or used to guard entrances to the home through windows and doors.
Note: Becareful Mabon colors are Red, Green, Orange, brown, Yellow, Gold, Violet, and Indigo
Mabon Altar: This is used to worship the spirits and thank them for the bounty or decorating your home. (Squashes, eggplant, pumpkins, gourds, apples (used for apple-cider, pies, dried apples etc….), seeds, nuts, grapes, vines, wine etc…….)
Do not and I repeat do not participate in this foolishness because it bounds you to sick twisted people that do things like this:
This symbol on the table cloth in the picture on the right is known as The Triquetras (Latin: Triangular) this symbol has been implemented in the Christianity religion as “The Holy Trinity” this is the apart of the secret religion that was practiced in Ancient Babylon. However, I will be diving in deeper on what this symbol is and who it really represents in another blog. Hint: It has nothing to do with the Most High.
All I have to say is DO THE RESEARCH
Hosea 4-6:9 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge.
Stay Blessed and Shalom
