Why Do We Celebrate Christmas on December 25th?

As many of you probably know, the general consensus today is that December 25th actually isn't the day the poor boy from Nazareth, named Jesus, was born in the city of David.

I'm not thoroughly researched on the topic, but I can roughly say that it was adopted after Constantine made Christianity the official religion of Rome as a way to replace the pagan holiday that previously fell on December 25.

A quote from that link:
"Christmas or more exactly Christ Mass is Rome's day which she "baptized" the winter solstice celebrations, primarily the Saturnalia, in her brackish baptismal waters. I praise God that Brian and a few others (very few) are preaching the truth about this day. I pray more will come out of these pagan and Romish traditions and worship the Lord in Spirit and Truth."

I think it would be nothing. It would be just a ordinary day to all the people. - YOR Health
