to my great surprise, the Catholic magazine "Inside the Vatican" did a nice piece early this year showing persuasively that Christ probably was born on or near December 25th
I've seen arguments for this notion. I'm thus far unconvinced. I think it is more likely that Jesus was born earlier in the fall, to coincide more with the festival of booths.
