Was Jesus born on 25th Dec
-->
Was Jesus born on 25th Dec? Or it is fiction. If it is so important there has to be some authentic proof to it?

No. Mary the mother of Jesus ate dates during labor according to the Quran and dates aren't in season in the Bethlehem area in December. The Quran tells us (translation)

23 And the pains of childbirth drove her to the trunk of a palm-tree: She cried (in her anguish): "Ah! would that I had died before this! would that I had been a thing forgotten and out of sight!" 24 But (a voice) cried to her from beneath the (palm-tree): "Grieve not! for thy Lord hath provided a rivulet beneath thee; 25 "And shake towards thyself the trunk of the palm-tree: It will let fall fresh ripe dates upon thee. [19:23-25]

Therefore Jesus was most likely born in the summer months according to the evidence given in the Quran.

Another question that may be asked is why even celebrate Jesus' birth when there is no evidence in the Bible that either he or his faithful followers did so? The actual date and festivities associated with Christmas can be traced back to previous pagan holidays as many other people answering this question have correctly pointed out. Nowadays, Christmas it's mostly a commercialized holiday that allows retailers to turn 'black' and become profitable for the year, hence the term 'black friday' for the shopping day right after the Thanksgiving holiday.

There is no more authentic proof to say when Jesus was born that there is to say he actually lived.

When Christianity was still a new and fairly persecuted religion, Christmas was coincided with a paegan hoilday honoring the Winter Solistice, so that Christians could have celebrations without fear of retaliation.

Recent studies have shown that the North Star could not possibly been in the sky at the point we previously thought, so it is believed that Jesus was actually born closer to the spring or summer.

Thats a good question. Many people woinder that. If you are a bible reader you'll appreciate this article.

Jesus was born in the Judean city of Bethlehem. Luke’s Gospel reports: “There were also in that same country shepherds living out of doors and keeping watches in the night over their flocks.” (Luke 2:4-8) This was not unusual. “The flocks had to spend the greater part of the year in the open air,” says the book Daily Life in the Time of Jesus. But would the shepherds be outside with their flocks on a cold December night? The book says: “They passed the winter under cover; and from this alone it may be seen that the traditional date for Christmas, in the winter, is unlikely to be right, since the Gospel says that the shepherds were in the fields.”

Augustus probably ordered this registration as a census in order to gather information for use in connection with taxation and military conscription. To comply with the order, Mary, despite being heavy with child, accompanied her husband, Joseph, on the journey of some 90 miles from Nazareth to Bethlehem. Now think about it. Does it seem likely that Augustus—a ruler who rarely interfered with local government—would require a people who were already inclined to revolt to make such a long trip in winter?

Significantly, most historians and Bible scholars reject December 25 as Jesus’ date of birth. No doubt you will find such information in an encyclopedia to which you have access. Our Sunday Visitor’s Catholic Encyclopedia states: “There is general agreement that Jesus was not born on December 25.”

No one knows for sure. But he was probably born sometime in the spring because he was born near when there was a feast in Jerusalem. The feast usually happens in the spring

I was thinking that Santa was born on the 25th of December, I don't know what year. Let's look at the facts: Santa's favorite day of the year is Christmas (he works throughout the night on Christmas eve), he goes back home to the North Pole to relax on Christmas day. He lives for that day. Most people want to take their birthday off of work--since he is self employed, he can do it. We never hear about him making the elves work in the workshop on Christmas. The reindeer rest because of the tremendous amount of energy they exerted that night--what generous and kind-hearted soul would make their animals work on Christmas without rest? Even the Bible writes about giving your animals rest at certain times...
Jesus, born on earth to bring Salvation to mankind is most marvelous beyond all earthly giftings for us to contemplate--God who sent His Son to die for our sins--that is worth celebrating, and that is worth us to give our lives back to Him. Christmas is the time in our culture to proclaim this Heavenly birth, and Christ's redemption is the message
