Question about Christmas
As most of us are aware Christmas was origonally celebrated many years before the supposed birth of Jesus. Pagans celebrated the winter solstice and when christianity was created they just adopted the holiday.
My question is: Why isn't Christmas on Dec 21 then? Did the winter solstice actually fall on Dec 25 2000 years ago? Or were pagan astromers off by a few days?
