What month was Jesus really born in?

I know that Jesus wasn’t really born on December 25 and not that it really matters but was just wondering when was is actual birth date was.

We don’t know the actual day or month of Jesus’ birth. For all we know, he could really have been born on December 25. All that is important about the date though is that December 25 is the date the Church chose on which to commemorate the fact of Jesus’ birth.
