Merry Christmas!

It is good to be children sometimes, and never better than at Christmas, when its mighty Founder was a child Himself.
Charles Dickens

Who was the founder of Christmas? I thought it was the Romans followed by other pagan beliefs??

Thank you, glad you enjoy the quotes.
Celebrating Christmas on 25th December started in Ancient Rome, after Emperor Constantine had declared Christianity the empire's favored religion. This date was probably chosen to match the ancient pagan Roman midwinter festivals and the winter solstice, in an attempt to Christianize these popular pagan celebrations.
