Default Pagan influences into Christian holidays

Disclaimer: This post is neither supposed to be pro-Christian nor for paganism ( I myself am an 'Aryan Spiritualist' ), I merely deal with a deal of history here . .
- - - - -

Christmas has its roots in the Germanic Yule festival . . the 'winter solstice' . . .

The fact that Christmas is celebrated in darkest december is not because someone during the Middle Ages came up with that as "the date Jesus must have been born" , it is rooted in paganism

. . also the custom of the Christmas-trees stems from the nordic peoples. The fact that it's a fir which is brought into every home also hints to a nordic pagan root ( firs only grow in certain latitudes ) . The snowy landscape associated with Christmas could be another hint.

Concerning Easter . . . the word 'Easter' stems from the Germanic goddess 'Ostara' ( in Germany Easter translates as 'Ostern' ).

It is the festival perpetrated for the supposed resurrection of Jesus.

Like I said , nobody knows /knew for sure when the supposed events surrounding Jesus supposedly had taken place.

The fact that the egg and the rabbit are associated with Easter . .

The rabbit had some kind of unique place in the animal-perception among the ancient Germanics.

The custom of the egg still stems from some fertility-belief.

So . . you see . . christian festivals are often mixed ( made to fit ) with Germanic customs.

Posting this thread since we are approaching Easter.

Sad thing is , today not too many people are aware of the European customs which flowed into even Christian holidays . . .

And . . since that Yggdrasil-song was ( surprise , surprise . . ) removed from YouTube , here is another version .

Here is a Christmas song that I like very much:

Although the lyrics are obviously Christian, the Pagan evidence is there as well. In fact, it sounds like Christian lyrics grafted onto an originally Pagan song.
All these ideas…are chained to the existence of men, to who[m]…they owe their existence. Precisely in this case the preservation of these definite races and men is the precondition for the existence of these ideas. --Adolf Hitler
