A round-up of what's going on at BestLatin.net
The name Sol Invictus does nor refer only to Jesus Christ but, during the late Roman Empire, was used also for other divinities such as, for instance, Aion, Jupiter and the emperor Elagabalus itself. Furthermore, Sol Invictus was often associated with the important cult of Mithra. See: http://senador.deviantart.com/art/THE-ANCIENT-CULT-OF-MITHRA-335117798?q=gallery%3Asenador%2F18555730&qo=5
If you look at my Roman calendar widget, the holiday listed for December 25 is this holiday; I made no claims about Jesus Christ, so I am not quite sure what the point is here of your comment. Normally I put the date in the subject line of the blog post; this time, I put the Roman holiday name instead.
