SO,  WHICH IS IT?
Is it “Христос раждається or “Христос рождається?
You’d be correct if you said the first.
Here’s the mystery deciphered for you. “Раждається (with an “a”) is an Old Church Slavonic (OCS) verb equivalent to the Ukrainian “народився. You can find this verb (with an “a”) in OSC dictionaries and ancient books written in OSC. On the other hand, the nounРождество (Nativity) is written with an “o”. And that’s the source of the confusion.
So, now you know!
