The Origin of Christmas

Many Christians and non-Christians alike have the wrong notion that the Lord Jesus was born on the 25th December. The Holy Bible does not give even a hint about the precise time and day of the birth of our Lord. The angelic communication of the Lord’s birth to the shepherds of Bethlehem came as they were feeding their flocks by night in the open fields. The angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, I bring you good News of great joy that will be for all the humanity. Today in the city of David a Savior has been born to you; He is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find the baby wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger”. December to February are extremely cold months in Palestine. And it was impossible for the shepherds to keep their flocks in the open fields in the extreme cold climate. Besides, our Lord’s words, “pray that your flight be not in the winter” lends credence to this argument that the Lord Jesus was born not on 25th Dec. If the winter was so bad a time to flee to safety, it would never be fit time for shepherds to lie in the open fields.
