New dating of nativity and crucifixion

During the midwinter festival Makar Sankranti, Hindus bathe in rivers such as the Ganges (Ganga) and offer water to the Sun god.

Similarly tying fruit to the branches of trees was intended to encourage the coming of Spring.It is the Sun god who transcends time and who rotates the Wheel of Time.Hindus believe that bathing in the Ganges can result in forgiveness of sins and help in the attainment of salvation.Year-end celebrations in which masters acted as slaves and slaves acted as if they were masters became popular in several regions of the Mediterranean.The festival was transformed into the Persian Yalda ("birth") winter solstice celebration, which remains a social occasion in present-day Islamic Iran.
