"the period wherein the sun moves northward again has been regarded as a festival season... The Founder of the Christian Church - God in the flesh - availed Himself of this period and came to us in the dark of the year and initiated a new era in which light was to be the distinguishing note." Destiny of the Nations 147.  

Here are some important references as to the authentication of the birth of Jesus Christ and of his date of birth being 25 December in the Dark half of the year. 

I do appreciate the contribution that offered some alternative info which began with the proviso "Yet it is also a season that requires us to be on our guard. Since we do not celebrate Christmas, we often stick out in a crowd."  I am suggesting that this is an important point as this sect version simply does not recognise or celebrate Christmas.
 
We are told by the Tibetan that this period has been celebrated since the 'night of time' and for thousands of years as the time of the 'coming of the 'sun god'.
 
The Church of the Great God (CGG) is therefore a small offshoot branch that follows its own interpretation which by the way is not the Ageless Wisdom of AAB/DK.
 
I appreciate that there are many other versions of the truth but we were given the blue prints and the 'truths that were true' as DK tells us. He is basing this on knowledge of Jesus Christ as the 'Founder of the Christian Church,' not on c1980 interpretations of the bible by some that are not acquainted with such truth, nor should they be expected to avail themselves of it.  
 
According to the Tibetan Master the Master Jesus "availed Himself of this period and came to us in the dark of the year". This is the significance of Christmas. He availed himself of that unique and opportune period as the sun moves northward again to initiate 'a new era in which light was to be the distinguishing note'.

Interestingly we are told by Annie Besant, referenced by Alice Bailey, that there have been some 'one hundred and thirty-six different dates fixed on by different Christian sects'. We are therefore forewarned. JPC.  
 
Jesus Christ: "came to us in the dark of the year".
 
"Even the establishing of Christmas Day on December 25th was so determined. The same writer quoted above tells us that:
"On the fixing of the 25th December as the birthday of Jesus, Williamson has the following: 'All Christians know that the 25th December is now the recognized festival of the birth of Jesus, but few are aware that this has not always been so. There have been, it is said, one hundred and thirty-six different dates fixed on by different Christian sects. Lightfoot gives it as September 15th, others as in February or August. Epiphanies mentions two sects, one celebrating in June, the other in July. The matter was finally settled by Pope Julius in 337 A.D., and St. Chrysostom, writing in 390, says: 'On this day (i.e. 25th December) also the birth of Christ was lately fixed at Rome, in order that while the heathen were busy with their ceremonies (the Brumalia, in honor of Bacchus) the Christians might perform their rites undisturbed."
 - Esoteric Christianity, by Annie Besant, p. 160.


The choice of this particular date is cosmic in its implications, and not unwittingly, we can be sure, did the wise men of earlier times make these momentous decisions. Annie Besant tells us that:
"He is always born at the winter solstice, after the shortest day in the year, at the midnight of the 24th December when the sign Virgo is rising above the horizon; born as this Sign is rising, he is born always of a virgin, and she remains a virgin after she has given birth to her Sun-child as the celestial Virgo remains unchanged and unsullied when the Sun comes forth from her in the Heavens. Weak, feeble as an infant is he, born when the days are shortest and the nights are longest..." - Ibid. p. 157. Bethlehem to Calvary 62.
 
The Tibetan Master:
"As we come to an end of our consideration of the world today and its dominating rays, working through the nations and conditioning the people, there is a final point which I would like to make; it lies in the realm of religion and concerns the significance of Christmas. From the very night of time, as well you know, the period wherein the sun moves northward again has been regarded as a festival season; for thousands of years it has been associated with the coming of the Sun-God to save the world, to bring light and fruitfulness to the Earth and through the work of the Son of God to bring hope to humanity. The Christmas season is regarded by those who do not know any better as uniquely the Festival of the Christ, and this the Christian churches have emphasized and to this all churchmen testify. This is both true and false. The Founder of the Christian Church - God in the flesh - availed Himself of this period and came to us in the dark of the year and initiated a new era in which light was to be the distinguishing note." Destiny of the Nations 147.  

"The Master Jesus: He is well known in the Bible history, coming before us first as Joshua the Son of Nun, appearing again in the time of Ezra as Jeshua, taking the third initiation, as related in the book of Zechariah, as Joshua, and in the Gospel story he is known for two great sacrifices, that in which he handed over his body for the use of the Christ, and for the great renunciation which is the characteristic of the fourth initiation." IHS  56.

"Tacitus (c. 56–c. 117), writing c. 116, included in his Annals a mention of Christianity and "Christus", the Latinized Greek translation of the Hebrew word "Messiah". In describing Nero's persecution of Christians following the Great Fire of Rome c. 64, he wrote:

"Nero fastened the guilt of starting the blaze and inflicted the most exquisite tortures on a class hated for their abominations, called Christians by the populace. Christus, from whom the name had its origin, suffered the extreme penalty during the reign of Tiberius 14-37 at the hands of one of our procurators, Pontius Pilatus, and a most mischievous superstition, thus checked for the moment, again broke out not only in Judaea, the first source of the evil, but even in Rome, where all things hideous and shameful from every part of the world find their centre and become popular." Wikipedia.  

"Pontius Pilate Latin: Pontius Pilatus, Greek: Πόντιος ΠιλαΎ¶τος) was the governor of the Roman Iudaea province from 26 until 36. In modern times he is best known as the man who presided over the trial of Jesus and ordered his crucifixion… Summarily executing someone to calm the situation would, however, have been a tool a Roman governor could have used, and Pilate's reputation for cruelty and violence in secular accounts of the era makes it quite plausible he would have had no hesitation in using this tool." Ibid.

"That is the reason that Christ stood mute before Pilate who symbolized the human intellect; He knew that no reply could convey meaning to that veiled, inhibited mind." GWP 240.

"His appearance as truth itself (silent yet present) before the bar or judgment seat of Pilate - repudiated by the world of men but recognized by the Hierarchy." EH 519.

"In the lawless and wicked period of the Roman Empire, the Christ came." RI 756.
