Well, I realize the term was not around and there is some debate of the actual date of birth. Records of such things were not well kept back 2000+ years ago unless you were born of means. We are talking variations of weeks or a month at most as to the actual date. I personally go by December 25th.
I do not believe or was never taught that Jesus and Mary were husband/wife. She was there when he died on the cross from what I remember. Whether as his wife...I have no idea. I'll ask him tonite and get back to you.
Christmas is of pagan origin, if I remember correcly. It originally was some sort of pagan holiday (when people celebrated the day of the birth of a sun-god), but then the Church turned it into a "Christian" holiday and called it "Christmas". As for when Jesus was born, no one really knows the exact date.
Like most things relating to religion, it's all just a load of cobbled together bullshit designed to control and appease the stupid masses.
Edit: One awesome thing to come out of this though is the discovery that MOTO is apparently pretty serious when it comes to worshipping a dead middle-eastern Jew. That's put a smile on my face.

“Today a young man on acid realized that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration, that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively, there is no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we are the imagination of ourselves.” – Bill Hicks
No one knows the exact date, but after piecing together the gospels most point at autumn as the time when baby Jesus saw light.
Christianity does mix together a lot of pagan beliefs, and uses and abuses (mostly Greek) mythology (Zeus' narrow escape from his father's wrath, Jesus being born in a barn, God "inseminating" a mortal woman, etc, and last but not least: the Holidays!).

Well, the exact date of the birth of Jesus is pretty difficult to determine. One has to take the date of December 25th with a certain degree of faith. To hold that out as bullshit or use to say religeon is cobbled together is pretty un-brilliant. Want proof???????
