Why Christmas in December?


If you ever asked yourself why we celebrate Christmas in December (and some in January), I am suggesting that you take a strong cinnamon tea with lemon or orange flavour, get an armchair and read this wise article from Andrew McGowan. It is quite inspiring and has a lot of interesting facts from the past: http://www.biblicalarchaeology.org/daily/biblical-topics/new-testament/how-december-25-became-christmas. Image

  1. Thanks for this link and the reminder of the connection between the birth and death of Jesus.

  2. This article may also be of interest. It is shorter and focuses on key points. http://www.prescottorthodox.org/2011/12/calculating-christmas/
