Supposedly the 25th was not the accurate date of Jesus' birth, it was from what I remember early December.

Why argue about religion and history when there's gifts to make/buy?

But if I can chip in my two cents, Jesus was probably born late spring, and died/was resurected in the early-late fall. Our New Years reflects a calendar used even before He was born. While it was redesigned afterwards, most of the same pagan holidays fell on similar or the same days.
Christmas was originally a celebration of the solstice, and easter was a celebration of spring and renewal; also of Fertility. Christians took it over and made it more family friendly - Big Business has done the same. Fertility had to go somewhere, so celebration of that was moved to May. May Day's purpose has since been forgotten by younger folks.

That is, if I have studied sufficiently, and am not incorrect.

Happy Holidays. Christmas is just around another bend.

I'm liking the Christmas theme.

The snowflakes remind me of Colorado!

Oh how I miss Colorado...
