Why is Christmas on December 25?

If you wonder why Christmas is on December 25, I’m here to answer that stupid question.

Hanging out on Facebook, I saw a post stating there’s nowhere in the bible saying December 25 is the date Jesus was born. Of course, there were a bunch of responses in agreement, but, just like Facebook, no one shared how and why December 25 came to be. 

Then there’s stupid me asking a co-worker if the 12 days of Christmas start before Christmas or after Christmas. To my surprise, he knew the answer right away. He was so nonchalant with his response, I felt like a complete idiot for asking the question. But, as we all know, there’s no such thing as a stupid question. Right?

Here’s my attempt to help explain the 12 Days of Christmas and how December 25 came to become Christmas.
