Yet, Protestants including Martin Luther continued to celebrate Christmas on December 25th – a date picked by the early Roman Catholic Church which “married” it to the pagan “Feast of the Unconquered Sun” in ancient Rome. I describe it as married because its united two things together that are separate but equal. This concept of “marriage” is played out in the article.  Click here to read the article about Christmas & Solo Scriptura
