There was a kid in my high school who used to tell everyone that he was descended from Charlemagne. He was very serious about it, and would get up in your face if you even raised an eyebrow at him.

He also made himself a duct tape jacket, and insisted that all of the teachers address him as "Ferret Lord" (he had a pet ferret). He was friends with a ginger kid who ate peanut butter waffles every day for breakfast, and never brushed his teeth afterwards.

On a related note, I did not attend my high school reunion.

You guys are lucky, according to that site, absolutely nobody of interest (to me at least) was born on the same day as me. I've got President Hoover, and Alan Alda's daughter (who I didn't even know was an actress). Whoopie.

Anyways, happy belated birthday!

Just out of curiosity, I fired it up for Dec 25th. Apparently, Jesus' birthday is a lie! Just like the cake.

Interestingly enough, today (April 3rd) is one of three days listed as possible death days for him though. Not sure what to make of that really

That the Catholics really have no idea when Jesus died. Same as how no one really knows what day he was born either. The Romans probably just picked December 25th because it was close to winter solstice, which was a holiday a lot of the pagans already celebrated. If it was even the Romans who decided what day Christmas was going to be. I'm not really sure about that.

That's just standard practice for an incoming new religion in those days, though. Make it seem as similar as possible to existing religions in the region so people aren't scared away or feel oppressed by a foreign culture. This includes replacing old holidays with similar, new holidays. Especially with similar practices.

I didn't even look at the birthday link, so I went ahead and did so and oddly enough Mr. Romita wasn't even listed. I'm highly disappointed.

It was the Roman emperor Constantine I.

Flavius Valerius Aurelius Constantinus, better known as Constantine I or Constantine the Great, was born around the year A.D. 275 - almost three centuries after Jesus. He worshipped the pantheon of Roman gods as all his predecessors had done and especially the Roman sun god, Sol. However, as he was traveling to battle his most powerful rival in Italy, Maxentius, at the Tiber River in A.D. 312, he had a vision. In that vision, he reported seeing the cross of Christ superimposed on the sun with the words, in hoc signo vinces - "in this sign you shall conquer." After winning the battle, he became a strong champion of Christianity. The very next year, he met with Emperor Licinius, the ruler of the eastern provinces, to sign the Edict of Milan giving equal rights to all religious groups within the Roman Empire. He returned property seized from Christians, built a great number of churches, donated land, and convened the first Council of Nicaea in A.D. 325 to deal with false teaching within the church. Although he didn't completely leave his pagan roots and wasn't baptized until A.D. 337 on this deathbed, he did much to further the growth of the church.

Either as a means to unify his empire, or to make converting to Christianity easier, Constantine sought to blend Christian and pagan traditions. At that time, two prominent pagan winter festivals were celebrated. The first, starting on December 17 and lasting seven days, honored Saturn, the Roman god of agriculture. The second, starting on December 25 and lasting through January 1, commemorated the birth of Mithras, the Persian god of light. Constantine merged many of the traditions from these festivals with the Nativity story in the Bible and Christmas was born. From its beginning, Christmas was a holiday (or holy day), gifts were exchanged, families and friends gathered to feast, and a birth was celebrated; just like in the Roman and Persian festivities.

The first mention of December 25 as the date of Jesus' birth is found in an early Roman calendar from A.D. 336.

Kinda like how Christmas has been replaced with a flagrant orgy of consumerism.

For all Evangelists like to claim we are a Christian nation, what we really are is a country that worships consumerism.
