Birth of Mithras

December 25, 2024

On this day, the Persians celebrated the Birth of Mithras. This god of light, creator, justice and all-powerful has established himself in many religions throughout the ages along the Silk Road. It seems that the annual celebration of December 25, the winter solstice, is the most important celebration of the cult; it was believed that Mithras was born on this day, hence the birthday of the unconquered sun (natalis solis invicti) also to be compared with the birth of Jesus. #mythology #myth #legend #calendar #December 25 #Iran #Mithra
