Jesus Christ!

Jesus was not born in December. Here is my reasoning.
Jesus was born during a census. The Romans never conducted a census in winter due to the seer logistics as people had to return to their home villages. It was done in summer.

One of the many cults that the Roman Emperor Constantine forced the early Christians to merge with was the cult of Mathias, whose savior figure, Mathias WAS born of the 25th of December. It also combined the holy days of many of the other faiths. (Oh, and Easter is placed on the holy day of Esther, the Egyptian Goddess of resurrection, renewal and rebirth whose followers were forced to merge as well, and who imagery was often used to the Holy Virgin.)

The thing about pixies and gnome? It is an old belief that spanned most of Europe. Often people would leave dishes of milk out, or bits of meat. It was for the fairy folk in general. They did it not just for favors, but so they would not do harmful pranks of the humans, like making their milk go off, and many other things. Consider it a kind of supernatural protection racket.

These kinds of offering have been dated back to about 2000BC!
