Why Is Christmas on December 25th?

New evidence suggests Christmas was not put on December 25th because of Roman festivals.

Ever wonder by Christmas is on December 25th? I bet you learned it was due to a Roman pagan festival like Saturnalia or…

That's a widespread belief, but archeological evidence suggests Christians had already started listing Jesus's birthday on December 25th and the Roman placement of Sol Invictus might have been a response to the Christians instead of the other way around.
