Also, do you agree that the lyrics of "God rest ye merry gentlemen" and "Silent night" should be changed?

No, I believe it's highly disputed if I remember right (not that it matters that much what day he was actually born on). Here is the answer to your question, no he was not, and I believe this article may have an accurate description on the origins of Christmas: http://rcg.org...

Very, very doubtful - almost to the point of saying, "No." It's origins are a mixture of paganism and the beginnings of Roman Catholicism.

I don't see why. Christmas is just an evolution of the ancient Pagan tradition to celebrate Christ. There may be no evidence that Jesus was born on Christmas, but if we had to change every song lyric that was untrue we would have basically no music. There's no reason for Christmas songs to be singled out for telling tales that aren't proven to be true.

And let's face it, "Possibly silent night, about 1/365th chance of a Holy Night, all might be calm, there's a chance all is bright" just sounds bad

UPDATED ..... The real meaning of Christmas ..

You can shop .. decorate .. go to your child"s pageant .. and gather with relatives you rarely see .. But if you forget Jesus this Christmas .. you"ve missed the entire .. glorious point .. John MacArthur"s study The Real Meaning of Christmas helps set the tone for a Christmas of real worship .. maybe your best celebration ever.
