I would like to share something with you about Jesus' birth. He was in fact, NOT born on December 25th. It is more likely that he was born in the fall around the Feast of Tabernacles, which is why the inn was full. It was too cold in December for the shepherds to be out with their sheep!
However, there was another man, Nimrod of Babylon, who was born on the 25th, only it was 2 thousand years before Christ was even born. After he died, his mother/wife (yes, he married his mother) told everyone she saw a stump grow into a full grown evergreen tree overnight. Also, the 25th was the first day the sun noticeably stayed up longer. So every year on the 25th, the Babylonians would celebrate new life and the birth of a new sun by decorating evergreen trees with gold. Then, on his birthday, Nimrod (aka Father Christmas, or rather Father of the Winter Solstice), would leave presents under the trees.
So there you have it, the origins of Christmas. For more information on the subject, click here
