    Christmas(December 25th) is Not the Birthday of Jesus.

    First, Christian history testifies that Christmas originated with the custom of pagans who worshiped idols and that it was Christianzed later.

    Christmas

    The first celebration of Chist's birth on the 25th of December(Christmas) dates back to A.D.354, the age of Liverius the Roman bishop. And in 379, it was celebrated in Constatinople and then spread to Egypt and Palestine. Christmas originated in Rome. In Rome there were three great festivals successively at the end of December.

    The first was Saturnalia(17~21 of December)......

    The second was Sigillaria(the end of December). During this festival, they gave their children dolls to enjoy with.

    The third was Brumalia, the winter solstice festival for celebrating the rising of the sun.

    But Christians couldn't join such festivals, and they groped for their own festival to celebrate the birth of Jesus. They thought that it was reasonable to celebrate the birth of Jesus just after the rising of the sun.

    From such a pagan custom came the celebration of Christ's birth on the 25th of December, the birthday of the sun. This is the origin of Christmas.

    Another history book explains the origin of Christmas (December 25) in the same way.

    Christmas ... December 25

    1. Celebrated in Constantinople in 354

    2. Origin : Three Roman Festivals.

    a. Saturnalia (17~21 of December) ... The ancient Roman festival of Saturn

    b. SIgillaria (the end of December)... Celebrating the rising of the sun, from which Christian began to grope for their own festival.

    Judging from the above historical evidences, Christmas has no relation with Jesus' birth. It is Christmas that a Roman festival for the sun god was Christianized later.

    ※ The Encyclopaedia Britannica and some newspapers also testify that December 25th is not the birthday of Jesus, but of the sun.

    Christmas[2] or Christmas Day[3][4] is an annual holiday celebrated on December 25 that commemorates the birth of Jesus of Nazareth.[5][6] The date of commemoration is not known to be Jesus' actual birthday, and may have initially been chosen to correspond with either a historical Roman festival[7] or the winter solstice.[8] Christmas is central to the Christmas and holiday season, and in Christianity marks the beginning of the larger season of Christmastide, which lasts twelve days.[9]

    Although traditionally a Christian holiday, Christmas is widely celebrated by many non-Christians,[1][10] and some of its popular celebratory customs have pre-Christian or secular themes and origins. Popular modern customs of the holiday include gift-giving, music, an exchange of greeting cards, church celebrations, a special meal, and the display of various decorations; including Christmas trees, lights, and garlands, mistletoe, nativity scenes, and holly. In addition, Father Christmas (known as Santa Claus in North America, Australia and Ireland) is a popular mythological figure in many countries, associated with the bringing of gifts for children.[11]

    Because gift-giving and many other aspects of the Christmas festival involve heightened economic activity among both Christians and non-Christians, the holiday has become a significant event and a key sales period for retailers and businesses. The economic impact of Christmas is a factor that has grown steadily over the past few centuries in many regions of the world.

    Christmas is chosen to correspond to pagan festivals that took place around the time of the winter solstice, when the days begin to Jenhthenm to celebrate the rebirth of the sun. And the festival of Roman, Saturnalia also took place at this time. Christmas is rooted in this ancient pagan celebration. I don't know the actual birthday of Jesus, but I'm sure that it is not winter. because wnen Jesus was born, there were shepherd living out in the fields to keep their flocks. The season of Israel is divided into summer April~october, winter november~marth. So Christmas on Dec. 25 is belong to the winter. therefore Jesus' birthday is not Christmas but someday of Apr.

    The actual date of His birth is not recorded. The Church designated 12-25 as the day the faithful would celebrate the feast of the incarnation. This happened in the 4th century after Constantine legalised Christianity. We have celebrated this day for over 16 centuries now. The neo-pagans seem to have a problem with it. They say that Christianity stole their festival. Historians seem to have a problem with it too. They come up with many different dates that they claim was the real time, according to them.. It is all speculation. The Church has never said that 12-25 is the actual exact date of Christs birth, She has always declared that we would celebrate the Incarnatin on this date. Pax Christi

    Christmas is a popula festival, which is celebrated throughout the world. Most people are under the impression that Christmas is Jesus' birtheday, the day when He came into this world to give blessings and eternal hope to mankind. However, they are totally mistaken.

    Actually, Christmas is a festival of the sun god, baal.

    Satan has deceived all people around the world into misunderstanding Christmas as the birthday of Jesus, wo they have come to serve him unknowingly. Many people try to justify themselves, saying "We celebrate Chrismans because it is the birthday of Jesus." However, Christmas, December 25th, is the birthday of sud god, Nimrod, who was thefirst model of the Antichrist, and it originated from the Roman festival of Saturnalia.

    You have to memorize that God has commanded us to follow:

    "Yos shall have no other gods before me."

    Christmas day is actually a celebration of the day the three wise men arrived in Bethlehem bearing gifts for baby Jesus. Historians believe that he was actually born in July given how long it took to travel from the Orient to Bethlehem.
