What can be surprising now is that, in the first three centuries of Christianity, the birth of Jesus does not arouse much interest. Moreover, many priests regarded as the anniversary anniversary of the birth of the holy martyrs or of Jesus.
Christian practices, as we know them today,are pretty much the fruit of ecumenical councils and it is, in fact, natural, because the original message is now carried by Christian cults or organizations.
What is certain is that the celebration of Jesus on December 25th is not necessary until the 4th century
And that’s after Christianity is declared by Constantine the Great as the official religion of the empire. This decision is a political one and through it it was intended to overlap Christianity over the cult of Mithra, which happened.
At the Council of Nicea it is established that Jesus will be officially celebrated on December 25th. According to Pope Julius I, Christmas was celebrated for the first time in Rome around 337 and only after a few decades it spreads throughout the Christian world. Christmas was established in 429 AD, when the Emperor Justinian declared the feast of the empire the day of Christ’s birth.
What seems obvious is that the celebration of the birth of Jesus overlaps with a solstice celebration, coincising with a veritable solar cult.
Until it was officially considered the Birth of Jesus on December 25, it was celebrated on several dates, the most important and widespread of which was the 6th of January. The Eastern Church celebrated the Physical Birth with the Spiritual Birth which was considered to be Epiphany, at which point John recognizes Jesus as the Messiah.
For us, the solstice falls on December 22nd. And if we made a correction of the period 25 December – 6 January, relative to our day we would get the interval 22 December – 3 January. What is extremely important and suggestive is that on January 3rd, although the cold reigns in the northern hemisphere, the Earth is at the smallest distance from the Sun, the moment bearing in astronomy the name perihelion. Another time and we meet again an important and unique relationship in the course of a year between the Sun and earth. The Earth is closest to the Sun, and Jesus the Sun officially begins his mission.
