I know it is not the birth of the savior. The savior was born at a time of year when the flocks were out grazing, not in the dead of winter. Christmas was celebrated long before the birth of the savior. In fact, Jeremiah condemned it hundreds of years before the savior's parents were born. If you look it up on the weband dig deep in the encyclopedias, you'll find that every holiday is in honor of these really crazy, whacked out gods who I don't even know if they are real or not. Probably representative of some high ranking catholic individual. Christmas, or any holiday for that matter is in no way connected with anything moral or religious. I appreciate you asking this question. All the merry christmas "questions" are aggravating!
The meaning of christmas is being with ur family and christ's birthday
Luke 2:7-14 tells us. <br />
"7and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.<br />
8And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. 9An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. 11Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christa the Lord. 12This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”<br />
13Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,<br />
14“Glory to God in the highest,<br />
and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests.”
