  • Jesus wasn't born on Dec 25th, I believe it was the Catholics who decided many years ago to celebrate Jesus' birth on Dec 25th. We don't know when his actual birthday was.

  • The dates of the Catholic calendar are not o be taken as actual dates but a representation of the Christian story. It would be foolish to think that you could take 34 years and sqish them down into one year and all the celebrated dates be the exact dates that the events actually occurred. Add into that that we celebrate dates that happened after those 34 years on that same calendar.

  • Honestly I think it was a literary tool that wasn't meant to be taken literally.

  • Oh, and Dec 25th had significance of its own, which is why so many were given connections to that day for symbolism's sake.
