Was the Messiah really born on Christmas Day?


At that time of the year in Israel, the weather would not permit farmers out in the field to tend their sheep. Could the Messiah have been born during autumn?

    This is so true, even Valentine's Day has a pagan connection!

    I think JThomp42 misunderstands my comment. Please read my Hub "The Sun God and the Son of God" for a more expanded explanation regarding the celebration of "Sun Day," which you will read does not disagree with JMcFarland.

    No. Sun Day was a celebrated holiday and very popular and that is where the Christmas date came from. Read Chasing the Sun by Richard Cohen. Most Christians like to regard all religions not there own as "pagan." Truth is ALL religions are pagan.
