In fear of a prophecy that he would be in turn be overthrown by his own son, Kronos swallowed each of his children as soon as they were born.
Another symbol of New Year’s celebrations is equally pagan! It is the familiar figure of a white-haired man carrying a scythe. What does he represent? The ancient Greek god Kronos. It is from the name “Kronos” we derive our “chronograph” which measures time.
Among the Greek gods, Kronos originally cut a swath of HUMAN SACRIFICE with his sharpened scythe! The “silent reaper” anciently “reaped” little children in horrible episodes of mythical CANNIBALISM! This Greek rite of human sacrifice was adopted by ancient Rome, where human sacrifice was practiced at least until 300 A. D.
No wonder YAHUAH Almighty warns the pagan New Year’s celebration is AN ABOMINATION to Him! See Deuteronomy 12:31.
