Now, Christmas falls on the date of Saturnalia, but it is also a celebration of the birth of Jesus, the Son/Sun.

The Nativity is full of celestial symbolism, for example -

The 'three kings' is commonly the name for the 3 stars in Orion's belt. On Christmas, these stars aline with the star Sirius (the brightest star in the sky), which, in turn, alines with the Sun... So it appears that the 3 kings are following the brightest star to the Son.
"We Three Kings", also known as "We Three Kings of Orient Are" or "The Quest of the Magi"...
