To the best of my knowledge there is no known date of the year for the historical event.
I've heard that best guesses are around September
But they're guesswork not fact.
It was highly unlikely to be December 25 which was used to replace pagan feats at that time of the year.
Really? I find it highly unlikely not for it to be on the 25th

As Anruari said, the Church has not set date, at least not to my knowledge. The date we celebrate Christmas on was actually the date of a pagan holiday called Saturnalia, interesting traditions surrounding it, by the way, but the Church declared that to be the day we'd celebrate it. It was rather ingenious, actually, they took a very, very popular holiday, and allowed Roman Christians to still enjoy one of their favorite holidays.
And if it was on the 11th of nov. We would be saying it was to replace the ooga booga god or if it was on the 6th of march. Then ppl would be running around like chicken little saying we stole the day off the mighty red rooster god or something.
To the OP. Noone really knows when. Not anyone here or any of the many theologians of this world. Not even the pope himself knows. So if you want to say it is on the 25th. Then go ahead. You stand the chance of being just as correct as anyone else on the planet.
