A Pagan Holiday?

Everyone knows December 25th is actually a pagan holiday that Christians stole.


After all... Rome celebrated the birth of the Sun on December 25th. That festival dates back to around 270ad when Aurelius created the holiday. But check this out...

The definitive "Handbook of Biblical Chronology" by professor Jack Finegan (Hendrickson, 1998 revised edition) cites an important reference in the "Chronicle" written by Hippolytus of Rome three decades before Aurelian launched his festival. Hippolytus said Jesus' birth "took place eight days before the kalends of January," that is, Dec. 25.

So... a beloved roman historian wrote that Jesus was born on Dec 25th... 30 years before the pagan holiday was invented by Aurelius.

Well? That certainly throws a monkey wrench into things. Want another?

Christ's birth has been celebrated on Dec 25th since the 4th century. And the 12 days of Christmas? That's because Epiphany occured on January 6. 12 days after the Birth.

But but but!!! Winter Solstice has been celebrated by pagans for 4000 years!!!!

So what? You think the Jews and Christians of Isreal knew or cared about what the cannible hordes of germany were celebrating? Correlation is not causation people.

So... according to Yahoo! Answers... Christmas is on the 25th because the Roman Catholic Church wanted to compete with the pagan holiday. Someone should really clue those poor dolts in. Christians had been celebrating Christ's birth on the 25th of December for centuries before the Catholic declaration.
