The term "begotten' means "born of" to me, so His birthday is the day He was born of God and Mary.
I may also consider it the day of conception; so He was, by that logic, begotten when the Holy Ghost came over Mary.

What is your definition of "begotten" ?

As is stated in the first chapter of Hebrews.
I agree with you, but I have seen a divergence from what is plainly stated in the bible where some teachers place the time of Jesus being begotten to His resurrection from the dead.
A position I cannot agree with

I think they get that from a misunderstanding of Acts 13:33.

Perhaps, and that from Rev 1:5..."And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,"
