Remembering Meat Loaf: Amadeus’ Tribute

January 21, 2022 at 10:28 pm (Culture, Entertainment, History, Music, music videos, Plays, Vampire novel) (, , , , )

Singer Meat Loaf (September 27th 1947 – January 20th 2022) Known for his album Bat Out of Hell and his hit song I’d Do Anything For Love

Amadeus Emanon had just heard the news that one of his music idols Meat Loaf had just died at the age of 74.

He decided to do a tribute in his memory.

Amadeus who was a musician, a singer and an actor contacted some of his friends on social media about it this Friday night.

They went down to St. James’s Park and acted out Amadeus’ improvisationally written play.

The play began with a High Priest (who practiced satanism in private but was a respected ecclesiastical figure in public) who was plotting the death of a man who was a threat to him.

The high priest said to one of his subordinates, “We’ll track him down. We’ll get him through his weakest link. His youngest follower.”

The Apostle John (played by Amadeus) was approached by a girl (played by Angelique Dumont) he once knew.

The girl kissed him and asked him to love her.

As John slowly succumbed to the girl, the girl then made a request.

And Amadeus replied, “I’d do anything for love but I won’t do that.”

Amadeus then began singing the song lyrics,

“And I would do anything for love but I won’t do that…”

He sang the lyrics up until the lines

“Some nights you’re like nothing I’ve ever seen before
or will again…”

Amadeus as the young Apostle John turns away from the girl played by Angelique.

John (Amadeus) then turns to a fellow actor who’s playing Jesus,

“And maybe I’m crazy
Oh it’s crazy and it’s true
I know you can save me
No one else can save me now but you…

That I would do anything for love
I’ll be there till the final act.”

John (Amadeus) bows to Jesus and then turned back to the girl he had known,

“I’d do anything for love but I won’t do that.”

The scene then turns back to the satanic High Priest, “So much for the theory about who I thought was the weakest link…”

The High Priest is then approached by Judas Iscariot who sells out Christ for thirty pieces of silver.

The Apostle Paul had it right when he said, “The love of money is the root of all evil.”

Top Guns In The Wild West

January 14, 2022 at 11:17 pm (Geopolitics and International Relations, Ghost Story, History, International Intrigue, News, The Supernatural, Vampire novel) (, , )

In the old Wild West town of Laramie Wyoming, a group of outlaws and brigands were threatening the town’s good citizens.

This duo found their car seized by the outlaws and brigands.

Who were the outlaws and brigands?

Neo-Bolshevik Communists also known as the U.S. Democratic Party.

Northwest of Wyoming, Washington state’s Neo-Bolshevik Communist Party government was introducing legislation to set up quarantine camps in Washington state.

America’s senile old fool and Neo-Stalinst tyrant Joe Biden was becoming more and more of a tyrannical despot with each passing day.

Anybody who was opposed to Neo-Bolshevik Communism taking over the U.S., Joe Biden referred to them as “white supremacists and domestic terrorists”.

This was rich coming from Biden who was best friends and mentored by West Virginia’s KKK Democratic Senator Robert Byrd.

After the gun wielding duo shot and killed the approaching Neo-Bolshevik Communist band of brigands, the ghost of Karl Marx appeared, looked at the dead bodies and shrugged, “There’s probably more where they came from.”

The ghost of Karl Marx had just come from the Vatican where he had been meeting with Pope Francis giving him ideas on how to form a global Marxist One-World government.

Marx’s ghost opened a book and said, “I’d now like to read a poem I wrote called The Player…”

“Thus Heaven I forfeited. I know it full well.
My soul once true to God is chosen for Hell.”

Marx went on, “And now from my poem Oulanem…”

“See this sword, this blood-dark sword, which stands unerringly within my soul?
Where did I get this sword?
The Prince of Darkness.
The Prince of Darkness sold it to me.
The Hellish vapours rise and fill the brain
Until my heart goes mad, until I go utterly insane.”

Marx’s ghost then smiled and said, “I’d now like to quote my favourite line from all of literature. It comes from Goethe’s Faust from the character of Mephistopheles where he says…”

“Everything that exists deserves to perish.”

The ghost of German film director Leni Riefenstahl (who made the 1935 Nazi propaganda film Triumph of The Will) then appeared on the scene.

She had recently been dispensationally released from the Underworld at Pope Francis’ request in order to make propaganda films for the New World Order Nazi/Fascist/Communist Hybrid Geopolitical Project aka The Great Reset.

The films would of course be shown on CNN, MSNBC, CBS, NBC, ABC and PBS.

As well as every major television network in Canada, the United Kingdom and Western Europe.

Marx repeated his favourite line from all of literature: from Goethe’s Faust from the character of Mephistopheles…

“Everything that exists deserves to perish.”

Leni Riefenstahl then showed movie footage of the anarcho-Marxist thugs and hooligans of Antifa tearing down statues and burning down and looting businesses and neighbourhoods in the U.S. during the summer of 2020 in what the brainless mainstream media referred to at the time as “peaceful protests”.

She then showed footage of senile old fool Joe Biden, Ottawa’s biggest residential idiot Justin Trudeau, World Economic Forum CEO and quintessential German movie character like villain Klaus Schwab, the satanic Antipope Jorge Mario Bergoglio, billionaire Trotskyite George Soros and eugenics population control freak Bill Gates saying that everything must be torn down and rebuilt.

The ghosts of 19th Century Freemasonic Pontiff and Confederate General Albert Pike and Freemasonic Roosevelt Cabinet Secretary (and later Vice-President) Henry A. Wallace (who argued for the phrase Novus Ordo Seclorum being put on the U.S. $1 bill in 1935) then appeared and said in unison, “Ordo Ab Chao”.

Order out of chaos.

But an Antichrist satanic diabolical order.

France’s Basilica of Saint-Denis Vandalized

January 10, 2022 at 11:32 pm (Crime, Geopolitics and International Relations, History, International Intrigue, News, The Supernatural, Vampire novel) (, , , , , , , , )

The demon Asmodeus and the little green frog Nimrod were sitting in The Sherlock Holmes Pub in London eating salted peanuts and drinking beer.

The TV was tuned to British MP Renfield R. Renfield’s podcast which was extremely popular with The Sherlock Holmes Pub patrons.

Renfield began his podcast wearing a Star of David badge that bore the inscription “I’m unvaccinated”.

The current Vaccinazi government of Germany in Berlin moved to charge Renfield with sedition even though he was a British subject and not a German citizen.

Renfield began,

“A massive-145 country study found that there was a sharp increase in Covid transmission and death after the so-called “vaccines” were introduced in those nations.
The 99-page study was titled “Worldwide Bayesian Casual Impact Analysis of Vaccine Administration On Deaths and Cases Associated With Covid-19: A Big Data Analysis of 145 Countries”.
In the U.S. specifically, it was found that the jab caused a whopping 38% more Covid cases per million and an even more astonishing 31% increase in Covid-deaths per million.
Meanwhile deranged medical bureaucrats, tyrannical politicians and the brainless mainstream media continue to push for everyone on the planet to be vaccinated.
Vaccinazi regimes across the world continue to push for vaccine mandates and compulsory mandatory vaccinations.
Yet in lieu of this new report based on the 145 countries’ own government data, it is my contention that only a completely demonically possessed asshole would wax enthusiastic about the Covid-19 vaccines at the start of this new year 2022.”

. . .

Meanwhile at the Vatican in Rome today, Pope Francis waxed enthusiastic about the Covid-19 vaccines in his annual address to the ambassadors accredited to the Vatican which is held shortly after the start of every New Year.

. . .

On January 5th of this year, the evil Jesuit priest Father Caiaphas bar Yochai had used his grandfather clock pendulum, which had the flaming head (caused by Hellfire) of Jesuit priest Pierre Teilhard de Chardin attached to it, to hypnotize a man into attacking and vandalizing the Basilica of Saint-Denis in Paris.

Today Louis Alphonse de Bourbon the Duke of Anjou (and heir to the Royal Throne of France) released a statement,

“I learned with sadness and dismay the vandalization of the Saint Denis Basilica in which my ancestors rest.
The statues of Saint Denis, Saint Genevieve and Saint Antoine were broken with an iron bar as well as many display cases containing sacred objects.”

Spanish Archaeologists Believe They Have Discovered Hercules’ Tomb

January 8, 2022 at 9:59 pm (Archaeology, Geopolitics and International Relations, History, International Intrigue, Mythology, News, Science, Sorcery, The Supernatural, Vampire novel) (, , , , , , , , , )

Athena the Greek goddess of Wisdom kept calm and watched as Spanish archaeologists claimed they had found the Temple of Hercules

Archaeologists from the University of Seville and the Andalusian Institute of Historical Heritage believe they have discovered the Temple of Hercules Gaditanus.

Using information they obtained from aerial photographs, the researchers found a large rectangular structure submerged in the Bay of Cadiz.

The structure nearly 1000 feet long and 500 feet wide matches the ancient descriptions of the Temple.

The Temple of Hercules Gaditanus is said to have been a columned Temple with an eternal flame, a fire raised on an altar and was maintained day and night by priests.

Greek and Latin records say this is the place where Julius Caesar wept before a representation of Alexander the Great (Caesar having discovered that Alexander was better looking than he was) and where the Carthaginian general Hannibal went to offer thanks for the success of a military campaign a century and a half before Caesar’s sobbing performance.

. . .

The Ontario provincial government’s own data shows that the fully vaccinated make up the majority of Covid-19 hospitalizations in the Canadian province of Ontario.

On January 7th there were 1327 fully vaccinated cases in Ontario hospitals compared with 441 unvaccinated cases.

Despite this, Canada’s brainless Federal Minister of Health Jean-Yves Duclos today called upon Canada’s provincial governments to introduce mandatory vaccination policies.

After making the announcement the words I AM AN APOSTLE OF THE ANTICHRIST appeared written in black ink on Duclos’ forehead and then a frogs’ legs and maple syrup cream pie was thrown in his face by an invisible entity (his bodyguards who had been drinking Harvey Tallbangers claimed it was a 6 foot 8 tall purple bunny rabbit with big pink floppety ears who threw the cream pie).

. . .

British MP Renfield R. Renfield was doing a Saturday night podcast,

“Thrice jabbed Austrian Chancellor Karl Nehammer contracted Covid-19 during a meeting this past Thursday night at which he was promoting mandatory vaccination.
Despite receiving three experimental injections, wearing a protective mask and living in a country with stringent rules and lockdowns during the Thursday night meeting, Nehammer tested positive for Covid-19 yesterday on Friday January 7th 2022.
Nevertheless the Fuhrer wannabe doubled down on his support for compulsory vaccination and told his Austrian subjects to get vaccinated and get a booster.
At the Thursday night meeting, everyone in the room was both doubly vaccinated and thirdly boostered, was wearing masks and social distancing, and lastly Nehammer himself was separated from everyone else by plexiglass screens.
Despite this a virus found its way through and made a mockery of everything that deranged medical bureaucrats, tyrannical politicians and the brainless mainstream media have been telling the world the past couple of years.
During the Thursday night meeting, Nehammer announced new measures for his subjects in light of the new omicron variant (which so far is proving to be less lethal than the original delta variant) and told the media that the government is working on a draft law to make vaccinations compulsory starting February 1st.
“If businesses do not comply, we will have the power to shut them down,” the Covid infected politician told those present.

“What then is to be done?” Renfield looked at the camera, “We must hang Austrian Chancellor Karl Nehammer by the neck until dead. And then he’ll never have to worry about catching Covid again.”

221 B Baker Street and The Italy Affair

January 3, 2022 at 10:53 pm (Geopolitics and International Relations, Ghost Story, History, Horror, International Intrigue, News, The Supernatural, Vampire novel) (, , )

“Contessa, Prime Minister Gladstone is at the door,” the butler informed the Contessa.

It was January 3rd 1894.

Or so Michelangelo the Psychic Lobster noticed on the calendar page on the desk in the living room as he noticed the pair in his vision.

“1894,” Michelangelo recalled the year from his History textbook (which was no longer used in the homo sapien public education system), “that was Gladstone’s last year as Prime Minister.”

“Gladstone and the Contessa were discussing Italy,” the ghost of Winston Churchill remarked as he sipped a spectral glass of red wine next to Michelangelo’s aquarium, “Often what was happening in Rome would eventually set the stage for the rest of Europe. Britain ruled the waves and the world but Rome seemed to rule the psyches of Europe.”

“I never could figure out Italian psyches,” the ghost of Sigmund Freud commented.

“Nor I,” Carl Jung’s ghost piped up.

. . .

The ghosts of William Gladstone and Benjamin Disraeli were banging at the door of 221B Baker Street.

Not realizing that Sherlock Holmes no longer lived there anymore.

And in Italy, the ghost of Benito Mussolini was in control of the current Italian government.

. . .

In the meantime, the government of Germany (Italy’s World War II ally) had released data suggesting that most of the fully vaccinated will have full blown Covid-19 vaccine induced acquired immunodefiency syndrome (AIDS) by the end of January 2022.

Naturally this data wasn’t being reported by the brainless mainstream meda.

Evil deranged mad scientist Dr. Anthony Fauci (an Italian-American physician of ill repute save among morons) was ecstatic upon hearing the news that Germans would be coming down with AIDS.

He would make a fortune from selling his drug AZT in Germany.

Meanwhile Germany’s new Chancellor Olaf Scholz was reading the report that said that the immune systems of the fully vaccinated have already degraded to an average of minus 87%.

Scholz put the report through the paper shredder as the ghost of Nazi Minister of Propaganda Joseph Goebbels applauded.

. . .

Meanwhile as the German people could expect to be keeling over from AIDS by the end of this month, the ghost of Benito Mussolini controlled Italian government in Rome announced last night that the Death Serum would be made obligatory for all over 18 years of age as of January 5th 2022.

A Committee For The Salvation of the Italian Republic was immediately formed which called for the arrest of the current government of Italy.

British MP Renfield R. Renfield approved of the formation of the Committee For The Salvation of The Italian Republic.

Remarked Renfield, “There’s no better place for the current Italian government to be than in jail. Save for the day they’re all hanging from the gallows upside down like Benito Mussolini and his mistress.”

Meanwhile the ghost of Sir Henry Baskerville (who was Sherlock Holmes’ best known client) had sent the ghost of the Hound of the Baskervilles over to attack Fascist pig Dutch police in the City of Amsterdam.

This past weekend Dutch police had set the dogs on anti-lockdown protestors in Amsterdam.

So now with the permission of Persephone the Queen of the Underworld, the Hound of the Baskervilles was returning the favour.

So just as German citizens would soon be dying of AIDS, the Italian government would soon be in jail and then on the gallows, Dutch police in Amsterdam would soon be dying of sulphuric rabies.

Renfield Spends New Year’s Eve In Moscow

December 31, 2021 at 11:05 pm (Espionage, Geopolitics and International Relations, History, International Intrigue, News, The Supernatural, Vampire novel) (, , , , , )

Svetlana Kireeva of the Russian FSB was British MP Renfield R. Renfield’s Moscow date on this New Year’s Eve.

British MP Renfield R. Renfield had flown over to Moscow Russia in the London based ancient Egyptian vampire Set’s dirigible airship named THE TSAREVICH ALEXIS.

He was to meet Svetlana Kireeva of the FSB in a classy Moscow restaurant.

Over glasses of wine, Renfield and Svetlana discussed the forging of an alliance between Renfield and Vladimir Putin.

Previously Renfield and Putin had been enemies.

They tried to kill one another on many an occasion.

However now they had a mutual enemy- European Union Vaccinazism.

Renfield was hoping to convince Putin through Svetlana that when Putin invaded Western Ukraine to not stop at Ukraine’s border but continue on and liberate all of the European Union from the totalitarianism of Vaccinazism.

“The only way we can get rid of these petty tyrants and deranged medical bureaucrats throughout the European Union is through armed force,” Renfield noted, “I’d much prefer a Neo-Czarist Russian Imperialism ruling Western Europe than the current hybrid of Neo-Hitlerian Neo-Mussolinian Fascism and Neo-Stalinist Neo-Bolshevik Communism that goes by the name of Vaccinazism.”

“Do you want him to invade Britain as well?” Svetlana purred sensuously.

Renfield put his knife straight up on the table and answered, “Well I’d like you to come to Britain as the new Russian Ambassador but no I’ll take care of Britain if he takes care of the European Union.”

“What do you think Joe Biden would do if this were to occur?” Svetlana smoothed the hem of her dress.

“Well,” Renfield crossed his legs in hopes that no attention would be drawn to himself over his response, “He’ll probably send his Armed Forces Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Milley (who seems to have more medals on his chest than there were on the chests of Gen. Dwight Eisenhower, Gen. Douglas MacArthur and Gen. George Patton combined) out to make some sort of idiotic statement or other but then do absolutely nothing like he did when he gave $82 billion worth of military equipment and the entire country of Afghanistan over to the Taliban.”

“It’s agreed then,” Svetlana smiled.

Renfield and Svetlana then had fireworks go off on the table as fireworks went off outside.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

The Mexican Cantina

December 28, 2021 at 11:05 pm (Film, Geopolitics and International Relations, History, International Intrigue, Mythology, News, Short Story, Vampire novel) (, , , , , )

Rosa the singer inside the Mexican cantina

The year was 1959.

Richard M. Nixon was preparing to succeed Dwight Eisenhower as President the next year.

John F. Kennedy was on the phone to Marilyn Monroe asking if she’d drop by his place on New Year’s Eve and personally sing Auld Lang Syne to him.

Jackie Kennedy was shopping for rolling pins.

And the Greek god Zeus was in the office of Los Angeles Private Eye Carson Cody Albion asking him to locate Ganymede the cup-bearer to the Olympian gods.

Ganymede had apparently gone missing and was rumoured to be working inside a Mexican cantina.

Zeus wanted Albion to find him and bring him back to Olympus.

. . .

“I’m tired of you Olympians always whining about your wine all the time,” was Ganymede’s good-bye note.

Zeus wept.

He enjoyed the immortal youth bringing him wine.

And now he was gone.

He went to his Rolodex and found the business card for Carson Cody Albion.

He then summoned an eagle to fly him to Los Angeles.

The eagle was happy.

It was tired of eating liver all the time.

The titan Prometheus was happy as well.

. . .

In the Mexican cantina called Pedro’s, Rosa was singing up a storm.

When she had finished, she went and stood next to the piano.

Behind her stood the Greek god Ganymede disguised as a statue.

Carson Cody Albion had received a grape rather than an olive in his martini as he watched the show.

The grape contained a fortune cookie saying sized message that read I DON’T WANT TO GO BACK TO OLYMPUS.

It was signed Ganymede.

Albion wrote Zeus a note saying that Ganymede had joined a militia of anti-Castro Cubans being put together by U.S. Vice-President Richard M. Nixon and couldn’t be located.

Cody then went to Rosa’s dressing room and knocked on her door.

Rosa opened the door.

Albion entered.

Rosa closed the door.

In the dining area Ganymede sat wearing an I LIKE IKE button and dark sunglasses and got his palm read by a blind fortune teller.

Mistaking Ganymede for Fidel Castro, the blind fortune teller told him that he’d one day have an idiot son who would become Prime Minister of Canada.

And inside the dressing room, Rosa personally sang Auld Lang Syne to Carson Cody Albion.

Winter Solstice 2021

December 21, 2021 at 9:54 pm (Folklore, Geopolitics and International Relations, Ghost Story, History, International Intrigue, News, The Supernatural, Vampire novel) (, , , , , , )

The gypsy Celestia danced at the equator as the Winter Solstice took place in the Northern Hemisphere.

Darkness and winter descended over the land.

Senile old fool Joe Biden approved.

Pope Francis had abolished all Traditional Roman Rite services this Christmas in order to bring about the coming of the Antichrist.

At the North Pole, there was no sign of Santa Claus, reindeer, toymaking elves or the famous North Pole barber Tiny Tony.

Rather there was the entity Saturn Cronus present.

He had recently escaped from Tartarus disguised as the Omicron variant of the Covid-19 Coronavirus.

The ghost of Adolf Hitler was about to light an Olympic flame in honour of the titan Saturn Cronus rather than the Olympian god Zeus Jupiter.

The minute of the solstice occurred.

And Hitler’s ghost lit the Saturn Cronus Olympic flame and proclaimed the 2021 Winter Solstice Festival open.

Two Jesuit priests attending the ceremony decided to make the Yuletide gay by engaging in carnal relations with one another.

Meanwhile in Washington DC, senile old fool and Neo-Stalinist tyrant Joe Biden was about to give a televised speech in which he would blame the unvaccinated for all of America’s problems.

The fallen Archangel Mephistopheles smiled approvingly.

He possessed Biden’s body on occasion just as he possessed Hitler’s body during Der Fuhrer’s mortal lifetime.

As crap exited Biden’s anus into his enhanced Depends adult diapers, crap also exited Biden’s mouth as he said, “The unvaccinated are to blame for all of America’s problems.”

Mephistopheles smiled.

He recalled Hitler saying, “The Jews are to blame for all of Germany’s problems.”

Meanwhile the deranged psychopathic mad scientist Dr. Anthony Fauci (whose Satanic Temple initiation name was Dr. Mengele Frankenstein Fauci) was spending the Winter Solstice dressed as Der Fuhrer Adolf Hitler.

He was wearing Der Fuhrer’s brown uniform with swastika armbands and wearing an Adolf Hitler style moustache.

He raged and ranted in front of his own mirror image, “No one should celebrate Christmas. Don’t have dinner with your friends, relatives or loved ones. Wear a 1001 masks over your face. Anyone who disagrees with me should be fired on the spot. The unvaccinated should be forced to be vaccinated if need be. Freedom and liberty and rights should be curtailed (except for mine) in the name of the Common Good. Who defines what the Common Good is? Why I do of course. I am Science. I am the Apotheosis of the Cosmos. Everybody should follow me and do what I say or else.”

A sauerkraut cream pie was thrown in Fauci’s face by an invisible entity (the 6 foot 8 tall purple bunny rabbit with big pink floppety ears named Harvey Tallbanger).

Meanwhile up in Ottawa Canada the pig-faced Neo-Stalinist tyrant Justin Trudeau had made his blackface up to look like that of the late Ugandan dictator Idi Amin Dada.

Trudeau addressing his image in his mirror said, “I am going to order my Finance Minister to revoke the tax free status of any charity or church that opposes my Moloch worshipping and child sacrifice policies.”

Trudeau then bowed in front of a statue of Moloch.

Meanwhile in Istanbul, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan the would be Sultan of a revived Ottoman Empire was talking to the chief of his secret police.

“What have you got to inform me?” Erdogan asked as he modelled his Sultan’s robes designed by the House of Gucci in Florence, Tuscany.

“The ghost of the Byzantine Emperor Constantine XI has been seen wandering the streets of Istanbul,” his secret police chief head said.

“Constantine XI?” Erdogan was shocked, “The last Byzantine Emperor defeated and killed by Sultan Mehmed II of the Ottomans?”.

“The very one,” his secret police chief nodded.

A Cross appeared at the top of the dome of the Hagia Sophia.

Pope Francis did a Joe Biden impersonation in his underwear when informed of the news.

80th Anniversary of Pearl Harbor

December 7, 2021 at 9:11 pm (History) ()

It was 80 years ago today that the Empire of Japan attacked the U.S. Pacific Fleet at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii.

FDR called December 7th 1941 “a date that shall live in infamy”.

It was the early morning hours of Sunday December 7th 1941.

A Saturday night date turned early Sunday morning serenade.

The pianist sang to his lady love,

“You must remember this
A kiss is just a kiss
A sigh is just a sigh
As time goes by

“It’s still the same old story
A fight for love and glory
A case of do or die
The world will always welcome lovers
As time goes by…”

The evening was filled with song, love and romance.

Unbeknownst to them that within a few hours time, their country would be at war.

The Night of Saint Nicholas

December 6, 2021 at 9:28 pm (Christmas, Culture, Folklore, History, Personal essays) (, , , , , , , , , )

It was December 6th 2021.

December 6th was the Feast Day of Saint Nicholas.

Saint Nicholas was the bishop of Myra in Asia Minor (what is now modern day Turkey).

He was known for his generous gifts to poor people.

He was also the Patron Saint of Children.

As such he was noted for giving gifts on the night of his Feast Day of Saint Nicholas when in Medieval Europe a person dressed up as the bishop Saint Nicholas would go around giving gifts to children in the respective village or town.

Later it became the saying that Saint Nicholas only gave presents to good children on his Feast Day.

And the figure of Krampus (a demon goat) was invented who was said to whip naughty children on the night before Saint Nicholas’ Day which was called Krampusnacht (December 5th).

And the really bad children (like Bill Gates and Dr. Anthony Fauci) it was said he put in a sack and carried down to Hell on that night.

In the centuries following the Reformation, the custom started developing in some towns and regions that it was Saint Nicholas who gave out gifts right at Christmas.

And eventually the idea developed that it was not the 4th Century bishop who gave out gifts on Christmas Eve but rather a very tall elf who wore a red costume and was white bearded and was called Santa Claus (the English equivalent of Sinterklaas which was the Dutch name for Saint Nicholas).

The more recent contemporary folklore mythology expanded to say that Santa Claus lived at the North Pole, had a magic sled pulled by seven magic reindeer (Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner and Blitzen) plus an eighth very shiney red nosed reindeer named Rudolph who guided the sled by the light of his nose and they delivered presents to all of the good children of the world all on one night.

However for a thousand years from 500 AD to 1500 AD, it was not the jolly old elf Santa Claus or the 4th Century bishop Saint Nicholas who brought gifts to children on Christmas Eve but rather Das Christkind (which literally translates to Christ Child).

Yes for much of Christianity’s long history, it was the Christ Child Himself who brought gifts to children on Christmas Eve.

Jesus would come down from Heaven and would resume the form He had when He was 5 or 6 years old and bring gifts to children that night.

The tradition was for children to do good deeds during the Season of Advent.

On the first day of Advent, a crib or creche was brought into the home.

Every time a child did a good deed, he or she would be allowed to put a piece of straw on the crib.

If there was enough straw on the crib, Das Christkind or the Christ Child would lay on the crib in the children’s home the night before Christmas.

And the Christ Child would give gifts to children on Christmas morning.

On the night of December 23rd, the crib or creche was placed behind a veil in the home.

If the child looked behind the veil before 7 PM on Christmas Eve, Das Christkind (the Christ Child) would not come on Christmas Eve.

At 7 PM on Christmas Eve, the father would part the veil.

And there in the crib would be placed a figure of the Christ Child.

And on Christmas morn there would be found gifts for the children.

But the Christ Child as the bringer of gifts on Christmas Eve would later be replaced by the 4th Century bishop Saint Nicholas of Myra (who originally brought gifts on his own feast day on December 6th) and later replaced by the jolly old elf Santa Claus (whose myth was inspired by Clement Moore’s 19th Century poem The Night Before Christmas and early and mid-20th Century Coca-Cola ads).

A long journey to take Christ out of Christmas.

Forgetting without Christ, there would be no Christmas.
