^^^^^^ facts! Glorious facts! There's nothing in the Bible that says Christians have to celebrate Christmas or that Jesus was born on December 25th. According to scientists, Jesus was most likely born in the Spring. But since December 25th is so close, Christians decided to celebrate his birthday on that day, and let the pagans do their thing. I don't care if Christians celebrate Jesus's birthday on December 25th but I hope they know the origin. Also Christmas was originally called, Saturnalia.

Yes actually. That's totally true. The Christians chose the day to compete with the pagan holiday and the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah. Chirstmas is a Christian holiday because of what it celebrates. However the day itself has no religous meaning to it. That was purely political. I am a Chirstan but also a history buff.1
