Romans worshipped many gods but there was an official state god.This god was named Sol Invictus (the unconquered sun) and was created by the emperor Aurelian in 274 AD.The Romans held a festival on December 25 of Dies Natalis Solis Invicti, “the birthday of the unconquered sun".Emperors up to Constantine I portrayed Sol Invictus on their official coinage and Constantine decreed (March 7, 321) dies Solis — day of the sun, “Sunday” — as the Roman day of rest.

Another useless fact I know
