I remember last Christmas seeing bumper stickers last year that said things like "put Christ back into Christmas" and "Jesus is the reason for the season" And so I thought about it a little bit and I wondered about that last bumper sticker. Is it really I thought? I mean reading the NT we can guess that Jesus was most likely born in September maybe around the 16th. December 25th didn't have anything to do with the birth of Jesus but it was a Roman Festival. The festival of Sol Invictus. The festival of the invincible sun. A Deity that is portrayed as a man with a spikey Halo or crown similar to the statue of Liberty. At some point Sol Invictus and Mythra were combined. This was adapted to the Christ Mass (what reason I'm not certain of) which comes down to us as Christmas. So is Jesus really the reason for the season or the Fact that the days are getting longer after Winter Solstice? Is the reason for the season really about Sol Invictus? And why don't protestants actually celebrate the birth of Christ in September? I mean we're not Shackled to the Catholic Church are we? If we wan't to be biblical why not get away from December 25? I think I will make a bumper sticker that says "Sol Invictus is the reason for the Season"
