    Cute, but what is really being celebrated is based on Greco Roman and mixed Pagan beliefs. The chief basis of this is the god Mithras, who was born on the Winter Solstice, died on the Spring Solstice and whose death brought the believe “salvation.” Mithras was quite popular among the Romans- there is even a small shrine to him that is preserved located in the City of London.
