Is Christmas Really Jesus Birthday?

I'm not a very religious person, but I really like Christmas because I think is the best time in the year so I would like to know if Jesus was born in this date or if this is just made up. I don't know if in Christmas is Jesus birthday but I think it's not because the Bible didn't say anything about it. Every year we celebrate that Jesus was born and I told my kids that Christmas is Jesus birthday and that's why we have to celebrate, but now I'm not sure and I don't like to tell them something that I don't even know, so if someone knows it would be great!!!

Christmas is not really Jesus birthday, because we don't know when exactly Jesus was born, and Dec. 25th is just a symbol. Roman pagans used to celebrate Saturnalia between December 17-25 and during this period Roman courts were closed and no one could be punished. Also, on Dec. 25 is the date of the southern solstice and this can be related to Christians because they consider Jesus to be the "Sun of righteousness". This date just represents Jesus Birthday and the important thing is what we think about the real meaning of this day. You can explain to your kids that Christmas is not the real date, but we don't know when he was born, so everyone decided to celebrate Jesus birthday during the winter solstice like the Romans used to years ago. I hope this is good information to you!!!

Jesus was born in the fall, so this is not his birthday.

jesus' birthday
No, because I watched this video on astrology and actually Jesus was born in the spring, not the winter. December 25 was just a date they decided to put it on. They know this because in the Bible people were talking about all that was happening and about the alignment of the stars. The position that they were in was the position during spring, so he was actually born mid-April.
