“For thus says the Lord: When seventy years are completed for Babylon, I will visit you, and I will fulfil to you my promise and bring you back to this place. For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you, declares the Lord, and I will restore your fortunes and gather you from all the nations and all the places where I have driven you, declares the Lord, and I will bring you back to the place from which I sent you into exile.

Jeremiah 29

Christmas is a celebration 0f the birth of Jesus Christ. We don’t know what day Jesus was born on, but December the 25th was chosen to mark His birthday by the Church 1,700 years ago! The early Christians, living in the city of Rome, chose this day as it was a holiday already, marking the middle of Winter.
