Who Invented Christmas?

Answer

Interestingly, Christmas did not originate in the Christian religion as many would think, It came from the ancient Romans. Every year in December they held a festival called ?Saturnalia? in honour of their god Saturn. The festival ran for a week starting in December 17 up to December 23.

There was no single person who started the celebration of Christmas, though a Roman manuscript from 354 AD is the earliest reference to the Christmas holiday as we know it.
It depends on how you look at it. God gave us his only son, so you could say that started Christmas. As far as who made it a declared holiday, that was Julius I who was the head of the Roman Empire in the 330s AD. You can find more information here: www.whychristmas.com
