Poll: British Youth Confused About Christ's Birth, Christmas Story
Young people in Britain are confused about the story of Christ's birth as told in the Bible.
A recent poll found that one in 10 young people ages 18-24 believe "Father Christmas" was a "Biblical figure mentioned in Gospel accounts of Jesus Christ's birth." Seven percent of respondents in the poll believed "there was a Christmas tree mentioned in the Bible," and a third of the 2,000 respondents believed "the Bible specifies Dec. 25 as the day Christ was born."
In addition, 25% of respondents said, "Baby Jesus did not cry when he was born."
