CHRISTMAS

Shalom, canada.

No one knows WHEN Yeshua` was actually born; however, December 25th is the day that was decided by most when to celebrate His birth. It just doesn't matter as long as people remember to celebrate His birth at Christmas. And, yes, Christmas is short for "Christ-mass," but that does NOT mean His "death!" A "mass" was (and still is) a time when the entire congregation comes together (en masse) to pray for God's blessings and His watch-care. Sure, that's a RCC thing (although adopted by other denominations that spun off from the RCC). However, it would be better if many people would come to believe that Christmas is the celebration of the Messiah's birth than all the hoopla about Santa Claus and Rudolph and Frosty the Snowman and all the commercialism that's associated with the holiday, don't you think? 

From my findings, the first known use of the word Christes-Maess was in England, 1038.

The Puritans passed an anti - Christmas law in 1659 and I believe it was opposed in Scotland at one time also.

Not the spring, but the fall. His birthday, as the Second Adam, is at the time of Ro'sh haShannah, the "Head of the Year," as was the First Adam. The Feast of Tabernacles (or "Booths"), also known as "Sukkot," was when God "tabernacled" with men. It's entirely possible that the days of Sukkot reflect the time when Yeshua` was first born up to the time when He was circumcized.

You first sentence is correct: Jesus was born on Rosh Hashanah, specifically, the one falling on Sept. 24-25, 7 BC. Shortly after the time of the Autumn Equinox, which was about 5:30 PM local time in Bethlehem on the 25th.
