Do most churches tell their congregations that Christmas is just an arbitrarily picked day?

Question by Arch Stanton’s Grave: Do most churches tell their congregations that Christmas is just an arbitrarily picked day?
I know there’s no great conspiracy to hide this information, but by the same token, is it information that is voluntarily acknowledged from the pulpit? Taught in Sunday school or communion classes?

From the number of questions I’ve seen here over the years, it would seem that to many Christians, this fact comes as a shock, even though the clergy all learn this in seminary, and it’s openly written about in numerous secular and religious publications.

So why do so many parishioners still find this information such a “revelation”?

I find it odd that most Christians dont know the history of their religion or of Christ mass
