Some say Christ wasn’t born on December 25th. They claim Christians took the date from a Roman holiday to rival the pagan feasts that took place during the Winter Solstice. This occasion honored a new age brought by the sun. Depending on location, the Winter Solstice occurs on or around December 25th. However, the date pales in the significance of Christ’s life. It’s His arrival, Gospel of love and unconditional sacrifice that massive numbers of Christians around the world celebrate each year on December 25th.
Christ is born!
Christ’s Gospel of Love!
Jesus replied: ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” (Matthew 22: 34- 40)

Christ’s sacrifice done! His gift, eternal life, given!
"Where, O death, is your
Where, O death, is your sting?"
(I Corinthians 15: 55)
Christ lives today! Christmas is when we open our hearts to Him!
“…And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” (Matthew 28: 20)
