of millions continue to celebrate the 25th of December
as the birth of Jesus Christ, completely oblivious to the notion
that this date does not represent the 'real' birthday of the Jewish
son of God. Lest 'Christmas' eventually end up being acknowledged
widely as the birthday not of the Jewish messiah but of the
sun, it needs to be immortalized that for hundreds of years that
day was celebrated as the birthday of Jesus Christ."

"The bottom line is
that there are no reliable historical documents that would
place the birth of Jesus on December 25th.On the other hand, there is overwhelming
documentation that the birthday of many of the sun gods of
antiquity was recognized as December 25th."
