Did Christians Steal Christmas?

Did Christians Steal Christmas?

By R.J. Stovold

Where did Christmas come from – is it rooted in prophecy or paganism? And why did it take centuries for most Christians to agree on a date for Jesus' birth? Robert Stovold explores the myths and legends around the December festival that dates back to earliest times, investigating the origins of Christmas trees, the divine child and the virgin birth – and finding some unexpected connections.
