December 25, is not the birthday of Christ. Christmas means Christ's mass. Jesus of Nazereth was not even born during winter. The current date is closely aligned with the winter solstice which the early Roman church chose to corrspond with already existing pagan celebrations. Because of errors in the Gregorian calendar, Jesus was actually born several years BC.

True! Most historians and anthropologists think that Jesus of Nazareth was born in the Spring of 3 B.C. and was crucified in the Fall of 30 A.D. These dates match what the Bible says with what records from the Roman Empire show.

Does the Christian bible say anything about your supposed to celebrate his birth? I thought it was his death that was important. Also December wasn't his birth date to start with....and "Xmas" has pagan roots anyway....soooooooooooooo
