Your beliefs

It's common for people to believe that Jesus was born on December 25.

Even though there's no real evidence for Jesus Christ's exact birth date, when do you believe his birthday was?

Due to doing research on my own, he was born sometime in the early autumn, not December. It's not likely for shepherds to be out in the fields with their sheep flocks overnight at that time of the year, and also the Roman Caesar wouldn't command people who were inclinced to revolt against him to take a trip in the dead of winter to register. According to the trip Mary and Joseph were taking to Bethlehem, the city of their firstborn's birth to be registered, those are good reasons not to believe that his birth had occurred on December 25.

Do you agree or disagree? Why or why not?
