The pagan origins of the Xmas egg

While the pagan origin of Easter eggs is relatively well known, the parallel story of the pagan origins of Christmas eggs has languished in obscurity, and it is time to make the story better known.

Many Christians eat eggs on the 25th December, and many are also in the habit of consuming the fowls that laid the eggs on that day too. It is a well-known axiom that whenever there is a Christian celebration or festival, there must be an older pagan one that was the true origin of the Christian one, and so it is in this case.

The ostensible reason for the celebration is the alleged birth of a male child to a virgin, but this story was reworked by the Patriarchy for its own ends. If we deconstruct the Patriarchal Christian story, it is easy enough to arrive at the pagan original.

What really happened was that Uranus and Gaia copulated, and Gaia laid an egg on 15 November. This egg hatched six weeks later on 25th December, and the goddess Aphrodite emerged from the shell. It was the Patriarchy that changed this female fledgling into a male child. Devotees of Aphrodite therefore abstained from eating eggs from 15 November until 25 December, on order to identify with the goddess in her ovoid phase, and it was believed to be bad luck if anyone ate an egg in that time, as it would hinder the hatching of the goddess.

One can see how the Judeo-Christian Patriarchy has twisted the story in the book of Genesis, where it is claimed that the male Patriarchal Yahweh created Uranus and Gaia, thus distorting the story. The original read “In the beginning Uranus and Gaia…” but the Patriarchal scribes inserted “God made” into the text.

Thus the pagan origin of Christmas eggs has been revealed.
