Off the top of my head, I'd guess that the day was holier than the eve.  After all, it's Christ's Mass.  Just like the feast of All Hallows was more important originally than the Eve of the Feast of All Hallows (but now Halloween is more popular).That being said, it's hard to say what is the holier of the days because it wasn't until 440 that we settled on December 25.  Before then, it was all over the calendar.  So who knows when Jesus was actually born!  ;)
