The Chinese in the 5 th Century identified a comet in March-April,a slow moving comet with a swirling startrail..a 'SUI-HSING".The wiseman travelling from the East would have certainly seen it.finally.flocks of sheep were being herded in the Spring there.to assume then that Christ was born in early Spring around March-April.Therefore she gave birth to Christ September/October.This can be discovered by studying when Zachariah was in the temple.The holiday was celebrated with a sacrifice in the Temple of Saturn, a public banquet, followed by private gift-giving, continual partying, and a carnival atmosphere centuries AD, are believed to have celebrated his birthday on 25th December, which was the most holy day of the year for many Romans.The worship of the Sun God, Mithra (proto-Indo-Iranian ‘Mitra’), has its origin in Persia, from around the 6 century BC, and was later adapted into Greek as ‘Mithras’.The answer points back to the Romans' pagan celebrations of the winter solstice.Two celebrations in particular took place around December 25 - the Saturnalia, and the birthday of the Sun God, Mithra (Catholic Encyclopedia). It paid tribute to Saturn, the agricultural God of Sowing and Husbandry, and was associated with the renewal of light and the coming of the new year.
:) The comment in Luke re "in the sixth month" is referring NOT to month of the year when Mary became pregnant but 6 months AFTER Elizabeth had become pregnant. Therefore Mary became pregnant somewhere in November or December.
However, such censuses were not taken in winter, when temperatures often dropped below freezing and roads were in poor condition.
Pagan celebrations Since it appears unlikely that Jesus was born on 25th December, it raises the logical question of why Christmas is celebrated on this date.
His discourse would have been IN the temple early/mid June.
Luke "In the sixth month of Elizabeth's pregnancy, God sent the angel Gabriel to nazareth....." Lori misread the scripture.
One final point to consider that Hanikkah lasting 8 days is really a Macabbean celebration to honor Sukkost ..which the Macabbeans had missed fighting to capture the Temple.
