Some claim Christmas is celebrated on the 25th after a pagan holiday but that is speculation. The patterns of number symbols in the Bible give us lots of evidence that the number 25 is symbolic of God/Jesus appearing on earth before men. I suspect we celebrate Christmas on the 25 because it is a celebration of Jesus, Son of God, appearance on earth - the biggest clue to this is the 25,000th verse of the Bible - Luke 2:26 "And it had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death before he had seen the Lord's Christ". In the next verse baby Jesus is officially/publicly brought to the temple.
Below are some tweets I've shared on this subject - in them you will see that Jesus/God appeared at other times related to #25 in the Bible. These are just a few of the evidences for #25 being about appearances of Jesus/God on earth...
