Neither the date 25th Dec. nor any other date on Jesus\' birth is mentioned in the Bible. It was not until the year 530 C.E. that a monk, Dionysus Exigus, fixed the date of Jesus\' birth on Dec. 25th. . \"He wrongly dated the birth of Christ according to the Roman system (i.e., 754 years after the founding of Rome) as Dec. 25, 753\". (Encyclopedia Britannica, 1998 ed.) This date was chosen in keeping with the holidays already indoctrinated into pagans beliefs.

Roman pagans celebrated Dec. 25th as the birth of their \'god\' of light, Mithra.

\"In the 2nd century A..D., it (Mithraism) was more general in the Roman Empire than Christianity, to which it bore many similarities\" (The Concise Columbia Encyclopedia, 1995 ed.)

Other pagan \'gods\' born on Dec. 25th are: Hercules the son of Zeus (Greeks); Bacchus, \'god\' of wine (Romans); Adonis, \'god\' of Greeks, and \'god\' Freyr of Greek-Roman pagans

The common Gregorian calendar method for numbering years, in which the current year is 2011, is based on the decision of a monk Dionysius in the sixth century, to count the years from a point of reference (namely, Jesus birth) which he placed sometime between 2 BC and 1 AD. Although Christian feasts related to the Nativity have had specific dates (e.g. December 25 for Christmas) there is no historical evidence for the exact day or month of the birth of Jesus.
