What is the history of Christmas?

The history of Christmas, is the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ.

But scholars disagree as to the actual date of Jesus' birth,

though most would agree winter time in Israel would be a most unlikely time.

The date of December as the time Christmas to celebrate the birth of the Christ Child,

was actually a re-purposed pagan holiday that was formerly celebrated by the Mesopotamians,

early Europeans, Greeks and Romans.
