With no time pieces
Yet they were able to see
Days getting shorter
 
The cavemen fearful
Sun will disappear from view
The world dark and cold
 
But three days later
The sun appeared much larger
Joyously they danced
 
Evil spirit gone
And celebrations began
Every year since then!

A pagan holiday was born. But it has been coopted and now celebrated as the birth of Jesus.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Yes there is a pagan DNA in us. A little different shade of passion, a little intense sometimes having been “cooped” since ages ago.

Like. Thanks Brod.

Thanks Brod. I think that the caveman celebrations became the Saturnalia of the Romans.
