  • Going to answer anyway..
    By what my mum has said... they were traveling for a Census of sorts... which only took place in Spring. So, going by that, I would say April or May (Now, I may be off, it has been awhile since i have had that discussion with my mum, considering I am a pagan)

  • Spring or Fall. I am glad He was born, not so much worried about when. More importantly, I am thankful He died for our sins.

  • From a scientific perspective? No living person knows--they WEREN'T there! They can only follow an old mythology book that doesn't specify a certain time period (you'd think they would with someone as important as the creator of a new religion). To mesh the smattering of odd and conflicting facts, scientists have guessed at somewhere between the end of April and the beginning of Sept between 2 B.C. and 4 A.D. (or B.C.E.) The only thing they're sure of?? It WASN'T Dec. 25th!

  • My grandfather who was an amateur astrologist, believed it was sometime between August and October of our calendar. I have heard others say it may have been spring such as April or May. I don't really know as the Bible doesn't tell us specifically.

  • From the biblical description it would have been sometime in the spring... But I couldn't fair to guess at an exact date, who could?

  • for some reason i thought it was july or something when i was growing up. i never thought it was december. now i don't even know. not sure we were ever given a date.

  • There was no Dec 25th back then. They used that date to cover over an already existing pagan holiday.

    I have heard he was born in the Spring.
    For an exact year range, find out when the Romans were physically in control of the Fertile Cresent Region to get a rough idea of the date.
