Learn about Celebrating the Nativity with iMindsJNR audio learning series for younger minds. Every year you probably celebrate Christmas on 25 December. Someone may have told you that this is the day of Jesus’ birth. But nobody actually knows when he was born! The Bible does not give us a date for the birth of Jesus. So early Christians took the date of important ancient festivals and placed Christmas around the same time. Before Christianity, the Romans had a winter festival called Saturnalia, which took place for one week in mid-December. And on 25 December some Romans also celebrated the birthday of Mithras, who was the Persian god of the sun.
