Although most Christians celebrate December 25 as the birthday of Jesus Christ, few in the first two Christian centuries claimed any knowledge of the exact day or year in which he was born. Battles are fought over the very name of the holiday, and Santa Claus is embraced more freely than the infant Jesus.

Christmas celebrates the birthday of Jesus, though his true birthday is unknown. The date was chosen because it was already a very popular pagan holiday.

Instead of having to give up the fun when becoming a Christian, Christians kept the pagan holiday and Christianized it, making everything about it related to Christ somehow. Christians did not celebrate the sun god’s birthday, so were left out of the festivities.
