According to an early sermon given by Saint Augustine, Jesus chose to be born on the shortest day of the year for symbolic reasons. He was born on the shortest day of the year from which the subsequent days begin to increase in length indicating the increase of light. Lord Jesus was called “the light of the world” by John. Also, there is the belief that creation began at the spring equinox (March 25), with the conception or birth of Jesus on March 28, which is, in Genesis, the day of creation of the sun. This is the reasons why Malachi the prophet described him as the sun of righteousness.
