It's bizarre that anyone would think it is in any way a coincidence.
Or are you suggesting that the comet caused the housing bubble to burst?
HE was born on 6 April (and probably 5 BCE as the dates were off).

The fact remains that both you and I cannot prove the Date of Birth or the existence of Christ, either way.
Also, the fact remains, we traditionally celebrate "Christmas Day" on the 25th December, signifying the birth of Christ, or just another special day for others, and we have our "once-in-life-time" comet display, during this festive season.
Do you not find this rather intriguing at the least?

TPTB changed his date to 25 December to coincide with the pagan Saturnalia celebration and to signify the return of the sun (resurrection of the Son) 3 days after the winter solstice (death in the zodiac cycle). It would be interesting to do a study and learn the actual date of his death on the cross - it might have been on the exact same day (6 Apr) that he is reported to have been born (I have it on the highest authority).
On closest approach, the comet will pass about 0.072 AU (10,800,000 km; 6,700,000 mi) from Mars on 1 October 2013, and it will pass about 0.42 AU (63,000,000 km; 39,000,000 mi) from Earth on 26 December 2013
