December 25th: Is It Really Jesus’ Birthday.

Most Christians are well aware that the December 25th date was chosen to be the day we celebrate Jesus’ birth. No one actually knows the exact date of His birth. We are also aware that this date was chosen to coincide with the pagan celebration Winter Solstice. This was done in hopes of converting the pagans. Since there is a paganism connection with this date, there are people (even Christians) who think we shouldn’t celebrate Christmas on this day. What they don’t know is that this date holds a richer significance and that it is an appropriate day to celebrate Jesus’ birth. Personally, I wouldn’t want to image the cold and dark winter season with out this spirit lifting celebration to remind me of the warmth and light of Jesus. Here is a video explaining  the other historical reasons we celebrate Christmas on December 25th.
