Some interesting Christmas questions

Dear Sir,

In the December 22 edition of The Royal Gazette, it showed the world's version of what Christmas is all about, but here's some interesting questions that most can't seem to answer:

1) If the word Christmas isn't even found in the Bible, where did it originate from?

2) If the Bible never indicates when Jesus was born, how do you come to the conclusion he was born December 25?

3) If Jesus died on a stake, why every year do most “worldly” people portray him as a baby in a manger in December?

4) If the Bible never said for people to celebrate his birthday, why do people still “celebrate his birthday along with their own”?

I often wonder, how come “most” can't seem to answer such questions, (maybe there's more to that so-called “truth about Christmas” thing after all).
