Christmas is on the day that Jesus was born, which was Dec. 25.
The Bible doesn't say what day or even what year Jesus was born. In about the 4th century Christians began to celebrate Jesus' birth to coincide with pagan celebrations in order to make Christianity more acceptable to pagans. When Jesus instituted the Lord's Supper he said "...this do in remembrance of me." Luke 22:19 People the world over remember Jesus on December 25, but he said to remember him at the Lord's Supper.
Likely, it was ancient prophets (astrologers or Magi) with agreement with Germanic pagan astrologers.
Germanic pagans celebrated Yuletide for 12 days, over the winter solstice period. The winter solstice marked faith in the rebirth of the sun. Post pagan Christians celebrated the same astrological and seasonal event as witness to Christ's birth, which is analogous to the birth of sun. Much Christian/Gnostic art displays Jesus superimposed over the sun. The agreement by Germanic pagans to convert to Christianity involved celebrating Christ's mass in the ancient pagan tradition.
Note: There is a possible link between Christianity and Constantine's pre-catholic cult of Sol Invictus (Mithraism).
The agreement also marked the conversion from the lunar calendar to the solar (Julian) calendar. Julian calendars mark 25th December as the winter solstice.
Astronomical event: On 25th December, The 3 stars of Orion's belt and Sirius line up with the sunrise. Astrologically, the stars of Orion's belt can be thought to represent the 3 wise king's or magi. The star, Sirius, can also be thought to represent the star of Bethlehem.
