Some Discussion on the Historical Dating of Christmas
Thanks to a reader who sent me an email linking to some interesting explanation of the historical dating of Christmas as December 25. The first link is to a fisheaters.com essay, and the other is to Dom Gueranger's The Liturgical Year. Unfortunately, there is no direct link to the relevant paragraphs therein, so click here, then click "Christmas" at the left, then click "History of Christmas" and read from paragraph three on.
