Is Christmas worth Celebrating?

Was 'Jesus' born on December 25? Well, the Bible makes no mention of the exact date on which 'Jesus' was born.

How then did December 25 came about? Have you try finding out, why December 25 is celebrated?

The root of Christmas are founded not on scriptural ground, but was founded on a pagan worship. A festival, such as the Roman Saturnalia, a celebration dedicated to Saturn, the god of agriculture. The reckoning, devotees of the god of Mithra, also celebrated December 25 as the " birth day of the invincible Sun," according to the New Catholic Encyclopedia. " Christmas originated at a time when the cult of the sun was particularly strong at Rome." That was centuries later after the death of Jesus Christ.

Based on Biblical and Secular history, Jesus was likely Born in 2 B.C.E. in the Jewish month of Ethanim, which is in correspondence to September/October.

Luke recorded that when Jesus was born, " Shepherds were living out doors" minding their flocks ( Luke 2:8-11), however Bethlehem is subjected to cold, rain and snow in the month of December. Clearly indicating that if Jesus was born on December 25, Shepherds would not have been " living out doors."

Would it be appropriate to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ our savior, along with other pagan gods on the same date?

The question still remains, I we celebrating Christ or the Devil?
