- A few people have been known to condemn Christmas being celebrated on December 25 and Mike Bamiloye has shared his opinion about it
- According to the preacher, the whole world has chosen a date to celebrate Christmas and detractors can decide to mark theirs on February 10
Many things in the society has changed due to the new found ‘woke’ culture as people now question a lot of things that are already considered a norm.
One of those things that gets a lot of questions from people is the celebration of Christmas on December 25. Christian faithful’s mark the birth of Jesus Christ on the said date and seeing as it comes at the end of the year, it is often a period of joy and merriment.
However, a few people have criticised the chosen date, saying Jesus was not birthed on the date or that it was a date set aside for pagan worship and was only transformed to Christmas.
Well, popular clergyman and Christian filmmaker, Mike Bamiloye, has shared his two cents on the issue. In his Instagram post, he asked whether people know the days some popular things being celebrated were born and why they are so concerned about whether Jesus was born on December 25 or not.
Bamiloye added that the whole world has agreed on December 25 to celebrate the birth of Jesus and detractors can decide to mark theirs at any time of the year.
Excerpts from his post reads: “I don't care if Jesus Christ was born on December 25 or not, even if it is on April 13, I care less.
But the Whole World has decided to choose a day to celebrate the Birth of the King of kings, Lord of Lords, the LORD JESUS CHRIST.
Why arguing whether My Lord was born on December 25 or not. While we chose to celebrate His birth on 25th December, you are free to chose your own date, and buy Christmas Tree and organise your own Carol on February 10.
Thank you Jesus Christ for coming into this wretched World to die for me that I might live.
And I look forward every year to Celebrate YOU on the Day we all agreed to celebrate Your Glorious Birth.
Merry Christmas, Lord Jesus!”

Hmm. Interesting points.
Just recently, Legit.ng reported that another Nigerian pastor, Apostle Johnson Suleman, said that December 25 is about celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ and not his birthday.
He advised that people focus on the reason for the season and not on the history. He said heavens celebrated so we ought also to do same.
