Against those who despise and oppose the Feast Of The Nativity, accusing it of being Pagan, yet claim to be Christian:

The Earliest Christian traditions, from the first Three Centuries, state that the day when Mary was announced the Divine Incarnation, or Conception of The Saviour (called the Annunciation) was on March 25th - and it is still celebrated today on the 25th of March. Nine months after the 25th March is the 25th of December! March 25th was also the day some early Christians held that the world had been Created, and also the day that Jesus Christ Died on, upon the Cross. The date of March 25th was chosen because it had been extremely accurately calculated that this was the day on which The Lord Died, Nisan 14th in the Jewish Calendar, through Jewish, Pagan and Christian sources, besides the preserved Tradition of Pascha, and they affirmed that The Lord was Conceived and had Died on the same day of the year, as happened with the Old Testament Prophets, as a Sign of God.

Tertullian of Carthage, writing in the Late Second and Early Third Century, reported the calculation that the 14th of Nisan, the day of the Crucifixion according to the Gospel of St. John, in the year The Lord died, was equivalent to March 25th in the Roman Julian Calendar. In the East, too, the dates of Jesus Christ's Conception and Death were linked. All this was established long before Emperor Marcus Aurelius made the feast of Sol Invictus official, in the year 274 AD.

Of course, the Nativity celebrates not the Sun, as is often blasphemously claimed, but God's Incarnation, and the dates merely coincided, at best. Israelites did not worship the Sun. It is a Hebrew Feast/Observation, not a Pagan One. The Early Fathers actually argued that Pagans had, by demonic inspiration, established festivals to mock the Hebrew-Christian Festivals, such as Pascha and Pentecost, which go back to Moses, far before other Pagan Festivals were established.

God's Incarnation IS DENIED by all religions. Pagans, who murdered Christians for believing in His Incarnation, that is, in the events of Christmas, cannot worship Christ!

Moreover, the whole Church accepting a false date, throughout the world, even the separated Nestorians in Babylon and India, is an impossibility and would mean that the Church, as Guided by The Holy Ghost, is practically a fraud. This is inadmissible.

Why did the Orthodox Patriarchates and Protestant Reformers oppose Popish Corruption? Because they had sources against them. Why did no one oppose the Nativity or Pascha during the Early Church, despite opposing all manner of heresies, literally thousands? This is because the Nativity was not an innovation, but Apostolic Tradition received inviolate.

As such, to affirm that the Holy Nativity is of Pagan Origin is blatantly absurd and manifestly false, having absolutely no historical basis, but is only truly Pagan, Judaising and Atheistic Propaganda against Historical Christianity. May all such blasphemies against The Lord's Divine Incarnation, His Nativity, for our Salvation, cease!
