What is the original date of Christmas?


Can someone please provide me with a link to a defense of why we celebrate Christmas on Dec. 25th? A fundamentalist I know is telling me that “…you know Jesus was not born in the Winter…”. I know there is a good defense for this, but I can’t seem to find it.

Merry Christmas!

Dear sek,

The Original Catholic Encyclopedia has more than you want to know:
*]Christmas[/LIST]Merry Christmas!
