Apparently Jesus was born in March. What is the proof of this? Id love to spout out facts at my family who insists Jesus was born on Dec 25.

You'd be hard pressed to roundly prove he was born in March I'd say. Try showing them how the church came to choosing the 25th of December instead maybe? Some details in this article will help (but there is heaps of info elsewhere on the internet too) http://www.watchtower.org/e/20071215/article_01.htm

I don't know the exact details but I believe the March date is often considered the most likely because of the reason Joseph was in Bethlehem, something like taxes or a census (this detail is fuzzy for me). Historians have documents leading them to the conclusion that it was done in March, so as the story is told they believe that is the month in which it is set. There is also an argument that scripture suggests he was concieved in Nov-Dec so he was probably born in September.
