The Christmas
Tradition Of Men
December 25 Is...Observed As The...Birth Of
Christ. In Early Times This Day Was Not One Of
The Feasts Of The Christian Church. In Fact, The
Church Fathers Frowned Upon The Celebration Of
Birthdays And Thought Them A Heathen Custom. It
Is Thought That Christmas Was Not Celebrated
Until Some 300 Years After The Birth Of Christ.


No One Is Certain Why December 25 Was Chosen.
There Is Nothing In The New Testament To Indicate
That This Is The Date Of The Nativity

(The New Book of Knowledge, Vol.
3, p. 289).

The Christmas
Tradition Of Men
The Observance Of Christmas Is Not Of Divine
Origin. The Day Of Christs Birth Cannot Be
Ascertained From The New Testament Or, Indeed,
From Any Other Source. (MClintock and Strongs
Cyclopedia of Biblical, Theological and
Ecclesiastical Literature.) The
Encyclopedia Of Religion By Fern According To
Authentic Records, No Church Festival Was Held In
Celebration Of Christs Birth, Until The First
Half Of The Fourth Century.

The World Book Encyclopedia Bishop Liberious
Of Rome In 354 A.D. Ordered That December 25th Be
Adopted As The Birth Date Of Christ.
Quotes Of Men Do Not Establish Truth - They
Corroborate It. Acts 1728, 29

Christmas Is Not
In The Bible
Christmas was not among the earliest festivals of
the Church. Irenaeus and Tertullian omit it from
their lists of feasts... Concerning the date of
Christs birth the Gospels give no help (On
line-Catholic Encyclopedia)
