Hi Jaq,

The Roman Church imported many pagan festivals into the Christian faith but these dates are not supported by the Bible. Christmas being a prime example, as there is no evidence that Jesus was born on the 25th of December.

The celebration of the Epiphany 12 days later, on the 6th of January, is not a date based on the Bible but a date based on pagan tradition and it is on this account that many Christians do not recognise the RC Church's and other similar denomination's, date.

regards
Rob
