Speaking to congregants during the Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh show at IGCG Christ Temple in Accra, Mensa Otabil argues that the purpose of Christmas is never about the date of Christ's birth but rather the purpose of his birth.

The precise reason why Christmas came to be celebrated on December 25 remains obscure, but most researchers believe that Christmas originated as a Christian substitute for pagan celebrations of the winter solstice.
