* AsTheGoodBookSays: Some songs refer to Jesus Christ's supposed birth on Christmas Eve in Bethlehem, which in fact is not historically proven to have happened on that specific day. People already held end-of-the-year festivities centuries before Christ's birth and the Church simply adapted Jesus' birth to that date because these pagan festivities were too popular to simply ignore or surpress.
