    I loved Rabbi Keleman's masterful descriptions of the origins of Christmas. In my view, 25th December was chosen because it was the Feast Day of 'Sol Invictus', a Syrian Pagan God worshiped be the Emperor Constantine who I believe never converted to Christianity. His mother Helen did. In return for allowing Christianity to become an official religion in the Roman Empire, the Christians had to adopt the 25th December as the alleged birthday of Jesus whose persona simply merged with Sol Invictus (The Invincible Sun God). The Halo shining above the head ofJesus and subsequently all canonised saints is a reminder of the connection with the Sun God.
