There seems to be a growing viewpoint that Christ could have been born on December 25.  Offhand, any day would have a one out of 365.25 chance of being correct, but is there enough evidence to suggest December 25 has more going for it than other days of the year, as per this article:

I think the Dec. 25 date is more likely than any other date, but very likely is not Jesus' birthday.
