UK's Daily Mail subtle anti-Catholic swipe
I thought that we had December 25th because as the Church spread west, they decided to replace the solistice with Christmas for evanglization reasons.  I've always been satisfied with this answer as it speaks to the Church's charity when dealing with infidels.  Is there a widespread school of thought that believes Christ's date of birth was actually December 25th?  If so, was the date of the annunciation (historically) March 25th?  If so, our Lord was right on time! 

How could that be established, since they used a different calendar?

Go thy ways, old Jack;
die when thou wilt, if manhood, good manhood, be
not forgot upon the face of the earth, then am I a
shotten herring. There live not three good men
unhanged in England; and one of them is fat and
grows old: God help the while! a bad world, I say.
I would I were a weaver; I could sing psalms or any
thing. A plague of all cowards, I say still.
