Sorry to burst anyone's bubble, but Christmas is actually a pagan ceremony celebrating winter, but the big-wigs in the RC church way back when, changed the meaning in order to fit with their religious beliefs in the hopes to garner followers.
That's why history tells us that JC was born sometime around April or May, when Christians the world over are under the impression that he was born on Christmas Day.
