Tonto na jay z and beyonce them be the same club na..who doesn't know that..
Anyway...no one actually know the day but someone from someone who have the brain decided to creats this day to celebrate it....

Well done .
The date was created not real  .  hence the confusion .  so many could be excused
And all those presents under the xmas tree coming from Santa is just kid stuff
There comes a time when a kid comes of age and the old tricks don't work anymore .  
I won't blame anyone reaching that age .  Ignorance or perpetual  thinking like a child is the only  crime against Soul and our Divine Heritage to the thrown of God

THE TRUTH ABOUT CHRISTMAS
CHRISTMAS originated from the word "Christ-Mass" which is a Roman Catholic tradition, a special mass performed in celebration of Christ's birth.
Christmas was not among the earliest festivals of the Christian Church. It was not celebrated, commemorated, or observed, neither by the apostles nor in the apostolic church -- not for at least the first 300 years of church history,
ANCIENT HISTORY
,,,,,  
Ancient history reveals that in past ancient pagan civilizations, it is no coincidence that December 25th was also the birthday of their pagan gods. All of BABYLONIAN and ROMAN FESTIVALS were cBlah …   Blah h

“But this being the 25th of December, why, making it the birthday, this is the sun god's birthday (See?), the Roman Baalim, the sun god. See? And the sun is just exactly halfway around now. . So they made it both sun god and Son of God's birthday.
“This was done by the Roman Catholic church before it become the Catholic church in Rome, about 86, 106, somewhere along in there, or 306, rather. Now, we find out that the Roman pagans worshipped Jupiter, which is the sun god; and they worshipped Ashtoreth, which was the moon god, or otherwise the mother of the--the mother of heaven. Well, to bring this down, they said that Ashtoreth, or god's mother of heaven was no more, and reflected herself in Mary. So it still remained idolatry, connecting Christianity to idolatry. Then also, and they suffered, or worshipped and respected the birthday of their sun god, which was Jupiter. It's when the sun from December the first until December the twenty-fifth.”

"

4. CHRISTMAS IS NOTHING BUT COMMERCIALISM
“Today, Christmas means a carton of caramels, a carton of Viceroy, a bottle of Four Roses, or Seagram, wrapped up in a pretty Santa Claus paper.”
“But it's [Christmas] got to be a place where it's a curse to little children. Some little neighbor down the street can have plenty, and the other little fellow don't have nothing, and they look. And the whole thing is altogether wrong. That's all.”
“And it's all just a myth, and Christ is not in it at all. And the people has turned in to buying whiskey, and--and gambling, and fashions. And a--a man that...
Santa Claus or the "Father Christmas" is a corruption of the Dutch "Saint Nikolaas." ("Saint Nicholas" was the 4th century Catholic bishop of Myra in Asia Minor, who gave treats to children; he was canonized by the Roman Catholic Church, "regarded as a special friend and protector of children." The red suit comes from the fact that Catholic bishops and cardinals in Italy wear red.) Santa Claus was also known as "Kriss Kringle," a corruption of the German "Christ Kindl"-- Christ Child.
Santa is the blasphemous substitute for Christ! He is routinely given supernatural powers and divine attributes which only GOD has. Think about it. He is made out to be omniscient -- he knows when every child sleeps, awakes, has been bad or good, and knows exactly what every child wants (cf. Psa. 139:1-4). He is made out to be omnipresent -- on one night of the year he visits all the "good" children in the world and leaves them gifts, seemingly being everywhere at the same time. He is also made out to be omnipotent -- he has the power to give to each child exactly what each one wants. Moreover, Santa Claus is made out to be a sovereign judge -- he answers to no one and no one has authority over him, and when he "comes to town," he comes with a full bag of rewards for those whose behavior has been acceptable in his eyes.
I. Do Not Make Yourself Any Carved Image – Christmas Trees, Wreaths, Lanterns... people’s attention are set on these “icons” during Chritmas thereby violating this commandment. God has given us His “Word”, not images to worship Him (1 Pet. 1:23; Deut. 4:12, 15-19).
J. Thou Shall Have No Other Gods Before Me -- Looking to the Christmas season for Santa Claus, worldly happiness, joy, and fulfillment, rather than through a pure, personal, and Biblical relationship with Jesus Christ, is pure and simple “idolatry”.

Thanks for the Epistle .  That might explain the feeling of heaviness in the air that present day xmas period brings with it  as folks r  rarely celebrating the birth of the Christ Child within them but some other commercialism or self interest .  I see it more as a season to mingle with family and friends ..  Perhaps Easter is more significant . when Christ showed the world that Death can be conquered  as He did rising from the dead

Jesus wasn't born on December 25th. It was just a chosen date. The way the bible described it, he was most likely born during the spring or summertime

celebrating the birth and arrival of our savior JESUS CHRIST .
just like any family would celebrate the arrival of a new born and yearly after that.
nothing more...nothing less.

Thank you. So, since the celebration of the death of Jesus (Esther) is rightly mentioned in the Bible and we are highly instructed to celebrate it, while not make this special more than the Christmas. we can mingle with friends and family on Esther day that is well confirmed in the Bible and forget this Christmas confusion
