The short answer is no. It is not believed Jesus was born on the day Christmas is globally celebrated. Instead, Christmas was chosen as a convenient celebratory day on the same day of a pagan holiday that celebrated the winter solstice, according to The History Channel.
 We know Jesus ‘ birth was late in the evening , after sunset, or at night , because the shepherds were in the fields at night when the angel appeared to them (Luke 2:8 – KJV), and told them the Christ was born “this day .” Since “this day ” started at sunset, as all Jewish days do, then the Messiah was born after
The Roman Christian historian Sextus Julius Africanus dated Jesus ‘ conception to March 25 (the same date upon which he held that the world was created), which, after nine months in his mother’s womb, would result in a December 25 birth .
Jesus ‘ brothers and sisters The Gospel of Mark (6:3) and the Gospel of Matthew (13:55–56) mention James, Joseph/Joses, Judas/Jude and Simon as brothers of Jesus , the son of Mary .
With the story of the birth of Christ coinciding with this date, many Christian symbols for Christ use the astrological symbol for Pisces, the fishes. The figure Christ himself bears many of the temperaments and personality traits of a Pisces, and is thus considered an archetype of the Piscean.
“The shepherds were watching their flock and it was cold .” Shepherds usually allow their sheep to roam harvested fields for residual vegetation. After the long, hot and dry summer in the mediterranean climate of the Middle East, pasture is usually scant.
We believe that Jesus Christ was born in Bethlehem of Judea, April 6, B.C. 1. Kimball merely refers to his birthday on April 6th (presumably also at 1 BC) as a fact.
Using these methods, most scholars assume a date of birth between 6 and 4 BC, and that Jesus’ preaching began around AD 27–29 and lasted one to three years . They calculate the death of Jesus as having taken place between AD 30 and 36.

The nativity accounts in the New Testament gospels of Matthew and Luke do not mention a date or time of year for the birth of Jesus . Karl Rahner states that the authors of the gospels generally focused on theological elements rather than historical chronologies.
Now one scripture deals with a more festive use of trees in worship. Leviticus 23:40: And you shall take on the first day the fruit of splendid trees , branches of palm trees and boughs of leafy trees and willows of the brook, and you shall rejoice before the Lord your God seven days.
Jesus does not have a last name . Last names were not common in those times. Christ is not a name , but a title. Christ means “anointed” or “Messiah”, so Jesus became the “Christ” or “Messiah” when he got baptized at the age of 30.
In Pullman’s version of the story, Jesus has a twin brother named Christ . “I was intrigued, you see, by the difference between the two parts of the name Jesus Christ that we commonly use interchangeably,” Pullman says.
Jesus had five brothers, namely, James (Ya’qov), Simon (Shim’on), Judah (Yehudah), Joses (Yosef) and Thomas (Toma’). And he also had two sisters, Rachel (Rakhel) and Lea (Le’ah).
