It is observed by All Christian nations As the anniversary of the birth of the Savior. Its institution is attributed by the Decreta letters to Pope Telesphoru Bishop of Rome who is supposed to have been elected 137, a. I who died in 138, a. I. But the first certain traces of its Observance Are found about the time of the emperor Commodus who ascended the throne Iso a. I. During the latter part of the reign of Diocletian 303-305, a. If while that ruler was keeping court at i Nicomedia now known As is Meed he Learned that a multitude of christians i were assembled in the City to celebrate j the birthday of Jesus having or Church doors to be closed to the building All the. Worshippers perished in the flames. Among the Early churches however there was no uniformity in observing j the nativity. It was often confounded 1 i with the Epiphany known in the greek j Liturgy As the feast of tile manifestation of Christ to the gentiles which was celebrated on january 6th, As the Day on which the miraculous Star led the Wise men to Bethlehem also As the Dikiy upon which Christ was baptised in the Jordan also As the Day upon which he performed his first Public miracles. Others celebrated in april others in May. In the 4th Century however Pope Julius i issued an order for an investigation to be made concerning the Day of Christ a nativity. The result of this investigation by the theologians of the East West was an agreement upon the 25th of december. This agreement or decision was based upon tile tables of the censors in the archives of Rome while some of the fathers held that there was not sufficient identification of the Day yet the decision was accepted from that time it has been celebrated As the anniversary of the birth of Christ. It is held by some that this could not be the anniversary of the birth of Christ for the reason that in Judea the Rainy season is at its height in the latter part of december the shepherds could hardly be watching their flocks by night on the Plains. Another reason advanced for this is that the coldness of the season would also prevent them from so doing. Among other things that fixed tile 25th of december As it is said one of the most powerful causes was tile fat that it is the beginning of the Winter solstice All the Heathen nations regarded it As a most important Point of the year in that it was the beginning of renewed life activity in the Powers of nature of the gods which were the symbolical personification of in Germany the North of Europe Christmas is often called the a a child rents festival a on Christmas five 1 a Christmas tree which consists of a 1 Large Yew Bough is ere<5ted in one of i the several houses lighted with tapers the presents ornaments suspended thereon.
