December 25th is not Christmas

    Rather it is sometimes in the beginning of October. Almost everybody knows this but we carry on nevertheless. Isn't it inappropriate or even futile ? I mean, will you celebrate your birthday on day other than your actual birthday?

      Actually, I was always told that it should be April.

      Yes if I was the Queen she has a birthday and an official birthday which is not the day she was born on. Also if I was born on February the 29th. I would have to.

      I would guess the actual date is mostly insignificant in religion, Easter moves around the calender each year.

    Given that Christmas was originally designed and implemented to collect the celebrants of the winter solstice October seems a wee bit early.

    Almost everyone knows this, but the 4 day gap doesn't seem to matter to anyone at all.
