Why did we stop celebrating Christmas in May?

“The first Church did not celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ. And the actual date of His birth was and still is unknown. The earliest known indication to such a celebration comes in a passing statement by St. Clement of Alexandria who mentions that the Egyptians of his time celebrated the Lord's birth on May 20” - St. Takla.com

So why did we stop celebrating it on May 20?


  • Probably to join other churches we were in communion with to celebrate the same day with them.
