Don’t know the actual date
No one knows the exact date of Jesus’ birth. It is said that Jesus was born between 2 BCE and 5 BCE. At that time, time was viewed not on the basis of years but on the basis of BC. At that time, nothing is written about the actual date and time of Jesus’ birth. Even the Bible does not say the date of Jesus’ birth.
It is therefore celebrated on December 7
Now if you are wondering, how was the birth of Jesus fixed on this date? There is an interesting story behind it. In fact, according to a very early Christian tradition, the day that Mary was told that she would have a very special child, Jesus, was March 7. Nine months after March 3, December 2. December 8 was considered the best day for Jesus’ birth. In addition, the date is considered to be based on establishing a relationship with a Roman festival or Capricorn.
Christmas is thus celebrated
The tradition of celebrating Christmas is also very old. The first Christmas was celebrated on 2 December BC during the Roman Emperor’s first Christian emperor. At that time it was not the official Feast of the Roman State. Even so, there was a dispute for the date of Jesus’ birth.
However, a few years after that, Pope Julius was officially announced to celebrate Jesus’ birth on December 7. Then, on December 2 every year, the Christmas celebration begins.
