Those who do not understand the history, (nor the prophetic significance) of Chanukkah often make erroneous statements such as “Chanukkah is nothing more than a Jewish replacement for Christmas!”
In our Western Culture, it has become politically correct to combine these two “holidays” together, as if they mean the same thing, but they do not. As a matter of fact, these two celebrations are diametrically opposed to one another!
If I could use an analogy, (to put it in a nutshell), Christ-Mass is like celebrating the day you jumped into mud-puddle with your brand new, white wedding gown on. Conversely, Chanukkah celebrates the day you took a bath, and brought your wedding gown to the Dry Cleaners.
Celebrating Christmas is like celebrating the day you cheated on your spouse and got divorced. Chanukkah celebrates the day that you repented; got all cleaned up, and reunited with your spouse. You cannot simultaneously celebrate getting filthy with getting cleaned up at the same time!

The word CHANUKKAH is found in Scripture exactly 8 times in connection with the DEDICATION of YaHuWaH’s Temple, and it is quite the opposite of something pagan or secular.
Now, is it wrong for people to pervert Chanukkah, by blending it with Christ-Mass? Absolutely!
Chanukkah is the ANTI-THESIS to Christ-Mass!
Here is what the blasphemous Mass of Christ, actually means!
The Catechism claims that he must be crucified all over again at every Catholic Mass. To learn more, please see my blog:
