It may be the time to examine Thoth:-

Thoth - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

As you cansee and note it is the Mythology of Thoth that gave the Egyptians the last five days of their Egyptian Calendar, where the birthdays of major Egyptian gods are placed, Emperor Aurelian thought it would be a good idea to have all gods celebrated on 25th December, however as they now followed the the Julian Calendar, with a 1st January start point, the point that had to be addressed was that the Egyptian Calendar started in the Summer, the Julian Calendar started in the Winter, his gods were Sol Invicta and Mithras so 25th December was chosen to represent the last days in both calendars and the gods of many religion to stop conflict within the empire
