In the Roman world, December 25th was the festival of the Invincible Sun. As Christianity spread, many of the first Christians were slaves. They could not take a day off whenever they wanted! They probably chose December 25th to celebrate the birth of Jesus, because it was already a public holiday and they knew that he was born sometime around then.
But by the start of the fourth century A.D, Christianity had become the largest religion in the Roman Empire, and around 330 A.D, the church officially adopted December 25th to celebrate Jesus's birth. No-one was saying that this was the actual date he was born.
We do not know exactly when Jesus was born, and it does not matter. What matters is that he was born, not the exact date when he was born.
