Yes! Pagan holidays are usually Christian celebrated. (which st. Patrick’s day IS a replacement Christian holiday for an older pagan holiday.)
It should also be noted that all the festivities and symbols associated with modern “St Patrick’s” Day are Pagan in origin. Shamrocks, leprechauns and green rule. Surely, raucous drinking and green beer are not religious practices.
- Legend has it that St. Patrick drove all the snakes out of Ireland. While Ireland has never had a snake population the snake was a common Pagan symbol. The Church added that chapter to the St. Patrick story to imply that Patrick drove the Pagans out of Ireland.
- Leprechauns are relics of Pagan mythology.
Do you celebrate this holiday?? I use to BUT since I have been shown the truth by Yahweh I don’t. You can not serve and celebrate both Yahweh and st. patricks day. Choose today!!!!
Should Torah Believers Celebrate This Day?
When you walk into the stores around the beginning of February, the glare from the bright red, heart-shaped boxes of candies will almost blind you. On February 14th, millions of people, young and old alike, buy tons of candy and exchange millions of valentines. Men send women flowers for Valentine’s Day, making February 14th, according to the florists, one of their best and busiest days. Young women buy evening gowns and young men rent tuxedos to appear desirable at the St. Valentine’s Day dance, more commonly referred to now as the Sweetheart Dance.
Is Cupid any different than Santa Claus, the Easter bunny, or the tooth fairy?
I believe NOT
When Constantine made Christianity the official religion of the Roman Empire, multitudes of pagans called by the church to convert, flocked into the church, bringing with them their pagan customs. Can St. Valentine’s Day be true worship? The answer is “no.” As seen above, centuries before Christianity, the pagan Romans celebrated this holiday as an idolatrous festival in honor of Lupercus, the deified hero-hunter.
It is time to start exposing all these foolish, pagan customs and teach what the Torah says instead: “Come out of her, My People, that you be not partakers of her sins, and that you receive not of her plagues,” (Revelation 18:4). As recorded in 2 Thessalonians 2:7, Paul knew that the mystery of iniquity was already at work. We, as true believers, must not be entangled in that mystery.
