The History of Christmas

“The History of Christmas,” a production by the History Channel, details interesting facts about our most celebrated holiday. For instance, did you know that the birth of the Christ Child was a mystery because the Bible never mentions when he was born. Since pagan Rome already celebrated the birth of Mithra on December 25, it is theorized that the church adopted the date as the brith of the Christ Child. In the fourth century, the church made it official, declaring December 25 as the Feast Day of the Nativity.
