Why I believe that Christ was born on the Feast of Tabernacles

I believe Christ was born during the Feast of Tabernacles. I believe that he was born on the 1st day of the Feast of Tabernacles (which was a holy day), and circumcised on the 8th day (which was a holy day). One reason I think he was born on this day is because God doesn't do anything at random. God chose exactly what day Christ would be born on. It makes sense to me that it would be a holy day (followed by another holy day for his circumcision).

Here are two good articles that show the evidence for Christ being born on the Feast of Tabernacles:

1. Christmas - Was Jesus born on December 25th?

2. When was Jesus Born?

It is also interesting that during the feast of Tabernacles, one was to stay in a temporary dwelling. Most of the time they built a crude shelter that looks similar to the manger scenes people put up at Christmas.
