Day by Day

The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad sends his Holiday Greetings to White jungle savages the world over.

You cannot prove that the 25th day of December is the birthday of Jesus and you are preaching out of a Bible which does not carry any such history. It gives you an idea that he could not have been born on December 25 by these words "While the shepherd watched their flocks by night."

If it had been in December, could they have been sitting out at night watching the flock eat good green grass? December is wintertime! Winter starts on the 21st day of December — you are four days into winter there.

Of course, there are some parts of the earth where winter does not come and there is pasture for the sheep all year round. But it is not like that in Palestine — in the winter, especially at night.
Whose Christmas?
