Christmas is the best known Christian day of celebration and perhaps for that matter the most celebrated date in the whole wide wOrld. Now we all know that it marks the birthday of bonny boy baby Jesus Christ (though on the balance of probabilities he almost certainly wasn’t actually born on the 25th of December). However did you know that Christmas day used to be a Roman day of celebration? to mark the birthday of Sol Invictus which in English roughly means the Unconquered Sun.
