Christmas Question

    As the Christmas eases into the warm winter ;) , I wish to ask you all a question that has always bugged me ever since I was a child.
    The gregorian calender, as per my knowledge, counts the years starting from the birth of the Christ. That means, the day Jesus was born is supposed to be 1st Jan 0000 (or, maybe 0001). If Christmas is supposed to be the birthday of Christ, then why do we celebrate it on 25th Dec? Shouldn't we celebrate it on 31st Dec / 1st Jan? (Ideally, 12 o'clock)
    Why the difference of 6 days?!

    There are countries like Yougoslavia where Christmas is celebrated on the 7th of january. It all depends on the calendar we are using.

    After 2012, we may use to planet - X calendar.

    In the end it is not the "real date" it is all about, but the event that happened that we celebrate: God sent His only Son to set us free! Wow! What an offer. Have you taken it?
