Most Christians Say Jesus Wasn't Born on Dec. 25, Poll Finds
When King James Bible Online asked the 110,000 users on its Facebook page if they believe Jesus was born on Dec. 25, Christmas Day, 83 percent of those who responded answered in the negative. A majority of the respondents also said Santa Claus is a "lie."

The date of the birth of Christ was among the four questions King James Bible Online asked as part of its survey, titled "What Do Christians Really Believe About Christmas," that was conducted this month.

Only 11 percent of the respondents said tradition is right about the date of Jesus' birth. Six percent marked "Not sure." ...

I wonder too why Christians, who are supposed to love the truth, make unsubstantiated claims about Christ's birth.

For what it's worth, this is the best justification I can find for 25th December, Gregorian Calendar (i.e. 6th January, Julian Calendar) as the date for the birth of Christ:
www.tertullian.org/fathers/ananias_of_shirak_on_christmas_02_text.htm#2

Which in turn cites an apocryphal Apostolic Canon as an authority.

But whether this date is correct or not, there is no warrant in the Biblical canon for any Christian festival or holyday aside from the weekly Lord's Day.

At about nineteen years of age, I found out that December 25th was not Jesus' real birthdate. I felt lied to and betrayed by the Church.

When I was a small child, I had my parents leave the front door unlocked so Santa Claus would not burn himself in our fireplace. I was overly concerned for his well-being in making sure he and the reindeer had safety and provisions. Furthermore, when I caught my parents stuffing the stockings, I was very angry having been lied to and I became mistrustful of them.

Lying to children about Santa, the Tooth-Fairy, and the Easter bunny - I believe teaches children that: A. You cannot trust your parents, and B. That it teaches children to lie.

If 'the truth shall set us free,' then why are Christians lying to their children?

me, you are somewhat correct, but so what? We still celebrate the the birth of Christ.
John Ankerberg wrote:
...It is good and proper for the Christian to celebrate the birth of Christ. Each is free to choose the day and manner of his celebration so long as conscience permits and Scripture is not violated. But none of us is free to condemn another where his conscience or convictions differ from our own.

Anyone who studies early Christianity knows that Christmas is simply a Christianized Version of the Roman holy day called saturnialia. It was made easier for Roman Christians to celebrate by changing the pagan names to Christian ones. The latain church did this with many things. Yes folks Christmas is certainly not Christ's birthday.

Here's a good one for everyone: I was listening to a radio talk show a little while ago. The host was wondering when people usually took their Christmas trees down because he didn't
know how long to leave his up.
I thought it was interesting that he was asking for Christians who knew more about the Bible than him to call in with the answer. Oh, boy.

Interesting figures considering the fact that those 110, 000 polled are Christians. Check out the split on how many Christians believe it's okay to let children believe in Santa Claus and how many think it's okay to have a yule log in their church. Interesting symbolism if you know what the holiday, like Easter, etc, is based upon.
I used to think it was all ok until reading through the rwcent arguments
