    Was Jesus Christ born on December 25,  Christmas day? Or is it in the month of January 2, 3, or 6, 7?  This various dates are significant, and a research need to determine the accuracy of the day Jesus Christ was born.  History tells us that wise men from the East came to worship him. When was that? That could two or three days after his birth. Likewise, the killing of the innocent babe boys from two years down is an indication to determine a near accurracy of the birth day.  Let's discuss.

      Not necessarily Dec. 25th. There are many speculations on what day of the year this happened. It is simply just the day that was chosen to celebrate the birth of Christ. Merry Christmas!

      It's not so much history, but more theology.  We shall never know the date - that's lost to time; but the date (winter solstice/21st December) is most likely taken from the Pagan's and many of the Christmas traditions e.g. the yule log, were also borrowed from the Pagan's.

          And the Introduction of the ‘Christmas Tree’ as a ‘tradition’ to Britain from Germany in the mid-19th century by Prince Albert, who was born in Germany and husband to Queen Victoria.

          Merry Christmas to All

            Merry Xmas, dear friend.

        Author, glad you're here. 21 December is human Theology. If we go back to history, we'll get a near like date. Thank you.

        Merry Xmas. Hope you enjoy your traditional egg dish? And by the way, I've forgot what you called it. Scrabbled eggs? Merry Xmas!

        Author friend, stay safe.

          For Christmas Breakfast, after we opened our Christmas Presents, we had soft boiled eggs and soldiers (a British Traditional dish) while sitting back and watching a couple of pantos on the TV (pantos being another British Christmas Tradition).

            Author, thanks for the link to the You Tube video. I 'll try the dish later. It's very simple.

              Thanks, and enjoy.  In the video the top of the soft boiled egg was opened by bashing it with an egg spoon;  I prefer the other method, I slice the top off of the soft boiled egg with a cutlery knife.  But it's what ever works for you.

              Either way, enjoy, and let me know what you think.

    I don't believe the actual date is dec 25, but we humans need a specific date to celebrate.
    I think January is too early...maybe March.

      March? That's when the passion and easter is around the corner. That's really absurd!

        I don't think it's absurd, Miebakagh. Luke 2:7-8 says “And in the same region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.” Then the angel arrives and tells them that Jesus has been born "this day." Some writers have pointed out that in winter in that part of the world, the animals would likely have been kept in a shelter of some kind instead of in a field. They would only have been out in an open field in the warmer weather of spring to autumn.

        The section in Luke may be wrong in its details, but as some people have said, it’s really not very important to know exactly when Jesus was born; the important point is that he was born.

          Linda, I don't think the Bible record is wrong. It's exactly what it says it is.

          Besides, Jesus was born. That's the important good news. When he was born was also iimportant because theology is suggesting December 25. Is that corrected? No.

          So humanity had to find out. that the point of this thread or discussion. I hope you're agreeing.

    You go by signs....like tge flowers that were in bloom..
    But then again...my part of the world is on a different season.

    I watched a film on this once and it seems it was like March 13...actually Friday the 13th.

    Not absurd...listen and look at the signs.

      Brenda, so you're saying Jesus was born in March? In other words, you're agreeing with Sextus Julious Africanus? This clergy also opined that God created the universe on the same day Jesus was born? Does that question your thoughts?
