December the twenty-fifth is just another day of freezing-cold.

I don't know what all these people are talking about saying that some guy died over 2000 years ago... if they love him so much how come they're celebrating his death?

Anyhow, if you do celebrate Christmas, I wish you a memorable day.

Love.
Colonel the Tolerant.

According to the bible Jesus was born during the summer... clearly unless he was born in Canberra he couldn't have been born in December, so the celebration is definitely not of his birth. I just presumed it was of his death.

we know that his death was around March - May .
The Gospel of Luke mention that Jesus was born in summer, or around March- November.
This'' 25 december'' as his birthday was introduced by Constantine the Great, to replace a Roman pagan holyday , the Saturnalia.

So basically you're celebrating a random day that used to be a pagan holiday just because some crazy Italian guy decided that that was the day Jesus was born even though it quite plainly isn't?

What if I'm pretending not to know when everyone, including myself, knows.

Constantinople was the capital of the Byzantine Empire, not the Roman Empire. Constantinople, when it was conquered by Muslims, was renamed, and is currently called Istanbul, and is in Turkey, not the Hellenic Republic. So he was Turkish in modern terms?

I consider those who consider themselves as Arab from Syria, Jordan and Lebanon who cannot trace their roots back to an Arabian tribe as all Arabised Romans. Egyptians are also an Arabised people.

Rome was still the capital of the Empire i believe, but Constantine ruled from Constantinople. Hellenistic culture had indeed spread very deep into anatolia and in Constantinople at this time (as well as the Levant and Egypt).

In modern terms he'd be Hellenistic Roman.

Constantine was born in Naissus, which is in modern day Serbia. He wasn't Italian in the slightest, even supposing Italian was a term that had meaning in the 4th century.

Eh when i say Roman i mean empire-wide. When you say Italian i assume you mean those born native to the peninsula.

Back then, Anatolia (Present Day Turkey) was Greek. It wasent until the Crusades that the Sultanate of Rum (Part of the Turkish Diaspora across Asia) began its expansion into the Declining Byzantine Empire. SO the Turks, originally from Central Asia *insert all the -stans*, migrated into Anatolia and expanded.

-Anatolia from the Rise of the Roman Empire to 1000 AD was Greek
-Anatolia then Gradually became Turkish following the Crusades starting from the East all the way West
-Became a Turkish Majority following the Crusades
-Nearly all Greeks were expelled following Ottoman Conquest of Constantinople


I would consider Constantine to be Roman, it is what he would have mostly identified as. He was the Roman Emperor at the time.

Constantine was a roman.The ''idea'' of ''Italian'' was not existing yet in that period.
Also, when Constantin reigned (25 July 306 AD – 29 October 312 AD / 29 October 312 – 19 September 324/ 19 September 324 – 22 May 337 ). the Roman Empire was already parted.Costantinople becomed official capital in 330.From 295 till 330, the Eastern Roman Empire was not official an empire, maybe more like a huge administrative region with functions like an empire.
