  1. From a historical point of view, the date of Jesus ' birth is unknown, because the ancient Jews did not celebrate this holiday. Moreover, we don't even know the exact year of the Messiah's birth. And maybe it's just as well, because our human tendency to idolatry is already too much about external attributes instead of understanding the essence of who this Person was.

  2. The Catholic Church and Protestant branches of Christianity celebrate Christmas on December 25 according to the modern Gregorian calendar.

    The Orthodox Church celebrates Christmas on December 25 according to the Julian calendar (or “old style”), which corresponds to January 7 of the modern Gregorian calendar.

    Such a mess came out. And on December 25, the birthday of Christ is celebrated because it was copied from various pagan Sun gods (and from the sun itself), and it just on this day comes out of the horizon a little earlier than before (the day begins to increase)
