celebrate the birthday of Christ on the 25th of December, while the sun is in Capricorn.  In many pagan religious teachings, the sun-god is always born under Capricorn, because he is a Redeemer who voluntarily offers to incarnate into the hard, painful world among mortals to help lift them up to the Light.  Many it's a little glamorous for many hard-working Capricorns who have no greater ambition than to own their own small business and get on with the business of survival and the support of the family.  But somewhere in each Capricorn there's a seed of this ancient figure who is really much older even than Christianity, who chooses of his own volition to remain in the restrictions and heaviness of ordinary life and responsibility in order to change things just a little bit and leave them just a little better or brighter.
