Actually, Pagans are not the root "reason for the season." Christmas is arguably brought to you by the number 23.45:

Pagans reason for Xmas season

Just joking. But the tilt of the Earth's axis happens to be 23.45. This causes the seasons and the continual change in the length of daylight hours. About DEC-21, daylight hours reach a minimum. By about DEC-25, ancient Pagans were able to notice that the days were becoming longer, with the promise of warmer months to come. So they had wild celebrations. The Roman Empire celebrated -- and how they celebrated -- Saturnalia. The Christian Church adopted the Pagan holiday, cleaned it up, and celbrated it as Christ's Mass, later shortened to Christmas.
