Why on earth would you be "fuming" over comments like that? They're just people making light-hearted, throwaway comments. Why would you care?
Honestly, I just don't see that as something to get upset about.

Anyway... Just smile and tell them that you're super happy to have a Christmas baby. People are ar$eholes once you fall pregnant or have a baby.. There will be many more comments to come. Maybe you should tell them how you feel when they say something negative. Having a baby is a blessing. I don't know why people link it to something bad.

My niece is born on Xmas day and DS is born NYE. We all wouldn't have it any other way. IMO it makes their bdays even MORE special.
Plus we can organize things around these celebrations and make their own special day x

I just think "fuming" seems like an over reaction. Why should it matter what anyone else thinks or says about your baby's birthday? The fact that you're having a baby at all should make you so happy that you don't even notice such stuff. There are so many worse comments made every day.
I was genuinely asking why someone would be so upset by the comments made. A little bit miffed, yes of course. But fuming - well, I don't get it so I asked a genuine question as to why. Politely. I wasn't rude in any way, so why the attitude in response?

I'm sorry if this is detracting from your joy, don't let it ruin it.please! People will always make comments regardless, when I fell pg with Dd2 dd1 was only 9mo, and I can't count the number of comments I got 'ooh you'll be busy' or 'was it planned'?
Don't listen to the negativity, that's what it boils down to

You don't have to understand, you don't have to get it, but you should respect it.
The fact that she's having a baby and therefore in your opinion should just be grateful is you projecting your reality and expectations onto the OP.
It can be so, so hurtful when people sh!t on your picnic - it might not be logical or rational but it's valid nonetheless....and OP, my DS2 was meant to be a boxing day babe, but he came 2 months early - I wish he'd hung in until Christmas.
