There are a few amazements that individuals experience when they begin to find out about Christmas. One is that Jesus presumably wasn't conceived on the 25th, in light of the fact that we don't know when his birthday was. Also, it's an astonishment for some individuals that the early Christians did not observe Christmas. It took 300 years or so before there was a yearly Christian festival. When one examinations the history one sees that there were, particularly in Europe, numerous mid-winter celebrations that existed before Jesus notwithstanding strolling the earth. At that point Christians chose to begin a birthday festivity, and deliberately set it amidst previous mid-winter celebrations.this book describe full history of christmas

The Christmas story is held by many to be an embarrassing legend which diminishes Christians' ability to defend the rest of the New Testament. Scholars are almost all dismissive of it. The notionally supportive accounts in Christian books are skimpy and amount to either a mere assertion or an acknowledgement that it is apologetically weak. Yet there is a lot to be said in its support. It can only be said coherently if one comes afresh to the gospels, and takes seriously the historical and archaeological objections. The story that emerges is strange and compelling. Christmas happened: the world was changed. What does this mean for you?
