December 25th is not the birthday of Christ, its pagan winter solstice sun worship
Christmas is a pagan holiday having to do with the winter solstice, nothing to do with Christs birthday. And also no one can prove Chirist was born on Christmas.

"December 25 was also the Day of Saturnalia, a celebration dedicated to the Chief god, Saturn, during which time there was much drinking, many banquets, and presents were exchanged."

"and Romans honoured the birthday of Sol Invictus on the 25th of December."

pretty much every culture and religion celebrates some form of "light" in the dark season of winter.

"The cult of Sol Invictus (the Unconquered Sun) was dedicated on the 25 December 273 C.E. in honour of the birthday of the Sol. Although this took place two days after the completion of Saturnalia, it is nevertheless thematically linked to the earlier festival for the 25th marked not only the birthday of Sol Invictus, but also the Winter Solstice in the Julian Calendar. The implications behind this are clear, for on the shortest day of the year the sun is born into the world and will spread his light and fertility throughout the hemisphere as the days grow progressively longer. Although we cannot know for certain, it seems likely that this sort of thinking would have occurred to the ancients perhaps going so far as to see the events of the Saturnalia as almost or paving the way for this important event to occur. It is also interesting to note that Sol Invictus was often conflated with both the god Helios and Mithras, the latter whose cult was considered the largest Pagan rival to Christianity in Antiquity. It is surely no coincidence that his birthday, or at least the season surrounding his day, was chosen by Christians as an appropriate time to celebrate their own religious mysteries (absorbing and adapting many of the seasonal traditions along the way)."

The story of Christ is a myth told through many stories throughout our history.

It is the story of our solar system.

we are all free to celebrate or not as we choose. the Bible says not to let anyone judge us in respect to a holiday ;-)

for my family we celebrate christmas and easter and remember they are all about Jesus

if I thought it was some pagan thing I doubt I'd do this. I know the history but it doesn't bother me. these threads come up every year on glp

if christmas bothers someone they ought not celebrate it. we are free either way Biblically speaking. all things are lawful, but not all things are edifying. skip the tree and presents if you want no big deal :)

love rb

The bible is really a story about astrology. Here's Jordan Maxwells take on it. Start at 11min. 30sec. to skip the advertising. Takes about 45 min. to watch, but well worth the information.

Your pagan ancestor's spirits weep every year knowing you have turned your back on their religion and have become Christian.
