merrychristmas to all
Christmas is suppose to be about the celebration of the birth of Jesus by spending quality family time together; Also by caring and sharing with those less fortunate than we are. Unfortunately, what has happened over the last few decades is the meaning of Christmas has been cheapened by all the commercialization that continues to get worst as time goes on.
No one really knows when Jesus was born assuming you accept him at face value. There is not even specific evidence of the place.
Over the course of History different methods (calendars) have been used to track time. So it's nearly impossible to pick an exact day for anything.
Luke, who tied Jesus' 30th year to the 15th year of Tiberius Caesar, 27-28 AD. Luke effectively placed the birth in 3 BC, as did many of the early church fathers. Ironically, even the date used by the Pope during the Christmas Eve midnight mass ritual is itself consistent with the last half of 3 BC.
The dirty little secret is that virtually all the available evidence has always pointed at the harvest period of 3 BC as the focal point of the Nativity--including the possibility of a late summer birth.
Ultimately the date doesn't matter. You celebrate what you believe. And why Celebrate his birth when you can Celebrate his life?
And what is Easter in Relation to Christmas? So much of what we do today is based on myth and stories as the facts are so misrepresented in the name of commercialism.
With that Happy Christmas... Celebrate what you believe.
Christmas is what you make it. It doesn't have to be overly commercialized. Mine certainly isn't.
gratitude and celebrating the ones you love and care about.

Is the celebration of Christmas, Biblical?I recently wrote a Hub article that discusses the Biblical nature of Christmas, and it got me to thinking: Do you feel as though the celebration of Christmas is sanctioned by the Bible? Why or why not?
