Who invented Christmas?

Was it Charles Dickens?
Jesus' life
Christmas, Jesus' birth, Charles Dickens, The Christmas Carol

When it comes to classic literature [pause] few authors have been able to transcend time like Charles Dickens. Did you know that he wrote The Christmas Carol in six weeks?

The Man Who Invented Christmas is a film based on the events surrounding those weeks when Dickens wrote this historic tale. As a Christian, I know that Dickens did not invent Christmas. Still, this provocative title does beg the question, who did?

Well, it wasn't Dickens, it wasn't Luke or the early church. The truth is that this holiday could only be 'invented' by God.

The first Christmas present was the birth of his Son, Jesus. God became a man to save the world. A gracious gift that was unlike any other in history. Who invented Christmas, God himself.
