Christ never told anyone to celebrate His birthday, only His death day. Christmas is not Biblical!!!!! Christmas is a pagan holiday that came of pagan Babylon. Any encyclopaedia will verify this fact. All the heathen nations in ancient times celebrated the birth of their sun god on December25. In the fourth century, the Catholic Church, in order to accommodate baptized pagans, made a mass out of this day and called it Christ-mass, or Christmas. j.k.
