Christmas is on December "25th" By Design - Symbolism of Bible's #25

Following are some tweets I posted recently. They provide some fairly strong evidence for the symbolism for the Bible's (God's) #25. I first observed this association with number twenty-five and Jesus appearances on earth when I noticed the 25,000th verse was about Jesus appearing at the temple and Simeon being called there at the same time. Simeon had been promised by God that he would not die until he saw the messiah. So on the Bible's 25,000th verse, this occurred. Luke 2:26 is the Bible's 25,000th verse.
Luke 2:25 And there was a man in Jerusalem whose name was Simeon; and this man was righteous and devout, looking for the consolation of Israel; and the Holy Spirit was upon him.
(25,000th Bible verse) 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.
2:27 And he came in the Spirit into the temple; and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to carry out for Him the custom of the Law,
2:28 then he took Him into his arms, and blessed God, and said,
2:29 "Now Lord, You are releasing Your bond-servant to depart in peace, According to Your word;
2:30 For my eyes have seen Your salvation,

This observation made me wonder if the meaning of why we celebrate Christmas on December 25th has been lost. Maybe the original celebration was about Jesus coming to earth, not actually about his birthday. Here's the tweets that help support this hypothysis...
