The Birth of The Christ was around Tax Season
King James Version (KJV)
1 And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should betaxed.
2 (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)
3 And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.
4 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)
5 To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.
6 And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.
7 And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.
Because it states in verse 1 of Luke 2, Caesar Augustus decreed the world (meaning the Roman Empire) be taxed, to properly pinpoint what time of year this was we must read further in the Chp. As verse 5 states that Joseph and Mary were to be taxed, this means they are taxed as a ‘legally’married couple, so they were in fact married at the time of her pregnancy. (As a side note even in a‘legal’ marriage there must be consummation, for in law, no marriage is legal until such an act occurs). Verse 7 Clearly states she, (Mary) brought forth her firstborn son, and so we can safely say it was tax season upon his birth.
For further evidence of this we read further and we see that his birthday was celebrated around the time of Passover which can be in the Month’s of March or April followed with Tax season. This is also because of the Commercial Practices of The Prophets who Governed the Earth and Establish the International Monetary System, conducted all of the Tabernacles Commerce at particular times of year for particular reasons. Tax season and Passover are the same today has it has been for several centuries, so we can safely determine that he was not born on December 25th.

Tax Season after the Passover
39 And when they had performed all things according to the law of the Lord, they returned into Galilee, to their own city Nazareth.
40 And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom: and the grace of God was upon him.
41 Now his parents went to Jerusalem every year at the feast of the passover.
42 And when he was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem after the custom of the feast.
(When he was twelve years old, meaning at the time of his 12th birthday, at the custom of the feast of Passover)
43 And when they had fulfilled the days, as they returned, the child Jesus tarried behind in Jerusalem; and Joseph and his mother knew not of it.
